Thrift store finds
There's a new thrift store in town and I've found it! I have to show you some of my recent finds....
Here's the first picture...some great old books, a lovely old stationery set, lots of old gold paper trim...with the 19 cent price tag still on it! a bundle of beautiful old lace trim, 4 polka dot cordial glass (holding the 2 plastic girls with eyes that open and close!) a final notice stamp and an old paperback "Calling Nurse Linda" which is very special indeed because if you flip it over it has a second novel starting from behind!
Here is a wonderful framed woven tapestry of a raven, a kitschy wooden owl wall hanging, two old Avon perfume owls (still had that old lady smelly rub on perfume in them) a gnome family and some music books.
And the last thing is this fun old owl clock which the salesperson assured me would work once I put a battery in it (it doesn't) which has already found a home on my craft room wall. I'll get a new clock movement for it some time but for now I just love seeing it hanging on my wall...it makes me smile every time I look at it!
Well, there you have it...won't you go thrifting with me?
