It might be and just in time for my BFF to visit on her vacation. She drove all the way from South Carolina by herself. Thank you, GPS! What do two long time friends do when they visit? Go shopping, of course. And by "shopping" I mean thrifting.
I found this pretty jewelry box the other week. It looks pink in the photos, but in real life it's pale orange. I've never seen one with a split lid. It's a little stained, but for a dollar I couldn't pass it up.
I couldn't pass this vintage skirt hemmer, either.
A box of drugs? How thoughtful!
No, drugs, just cool stuff. Lovely bracelet, soap and a smarty pants badge.
The craft stores have discovered Day of the Dead.
Skulls, which will become a garland, little wooden coffin and Muertos Bride and Groom. Too bad I can't find my candle holders.
Early birthday gifts: The wolf head is Betsey Johnson, I made the blue hand necklace (craft store) and the big hand is just cool.
$5 special edition Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Oh, look! I got Draco!
On to the thrifting part
Blue scarf is 100% silk from Talbots, the red one is from Saks, and the tie is Charles Jourdan. 2 silk scarves and a silk tie for $1.25!!!
And to carry all my treasures in.......
A $5 suitcase.
The BFF brought me another gift. Her Mother was visiting for 6 weeks and bought a ton of stuff. One item was this....
It's some sort of counter top oven that's suppose to make your live easier. I read some of the recipes and it's not that easy to figure out what to do. Frankly, I'm a little scared of it. The BFF doesn't cook (and she already has an oven). Free to good Home?
You know you always find strange things at thrift stores? I found this
A vest with a theater name tag in it. Wonder how it got to the thrift store 3 years after that person graduated? Dang, no wonder I had a hard time finding things. Bad, actor, bad. (no, I didn't buy it. I don't work there anymore)
