I so adore Thursdays. I get pick up Keiran from his short day of school at 12:35 while his sister enjoys four hours of Circus. It's a precious time to spend with him. We usually end up either going to local museums, exploring parks or going to thrift stores. He always is present with his fabulous good natured spirit and his keen thrifting eye. He's pointing out more and more valuable things to me.
Today I wanted to introduce him to the Habitat for Humanity Thrift store in town called ReStore. It's filled with building supplies like tile, sinks, stoves, light fixtures, doors, hardware, paint and furniture. He loved the store and it made me excited for the home that we'll eventually buy. They even had eco friendly paint today for $7 a gallon.
This lovely piece of furniture (photo above) was there and a steal at only $150. It may have been handcrafted. It's definitely old but kind of hodge podge together too. It was solid wood though and so fab with those glass doors. If I had a studio, I'd certainly would have been tempted to buy it. If you are in the Santa Rosa area and are interested, I'd give them a call and see if it's still available.
I'll be doing a post on ReStore soon with lots of photos.
I have an excited weekend ahead of me. I get to go thrifting with two of my friends and readers (Joy and Jeanie) tomorrow. Then on Saturday I'm going to attend a Grocery Outlet Blogger's Summit in the Bay Area. Although I'm still exhausted from L.A., I'm sure the excitement will help me through the weekend.
Have a wonderful Thrift filled weekend and I look forward to seeing your posts on Thrift Share Monday.
