I admit it!
I'm addicted to yard sales and thrift stores.
Maybe it's the thrill of the hunt or the exciting find.
I'm not looking for anything in particular.
I go because you never know what you're going to find and that one item I find may be something I just can't live without......
Like the old motion lamp below I got for $3.
It reminds me of the one we had at home when I was a child.... and that makes it priceless!
Or this really neat bookcase filled with my collection of Little Golden Books I got for $3.
Can you guess what it's made from? (see answer at end of post - don't peek)
And the dishes and kitchen items that fill this old Hoosier cabinet. They are so colorful! They brighten my day just looking at them.
And did I mention I collect old salt and pepper shakers. Most of these pictured below were obtained for 25 cents to $1 for a pair. I also got the cabinet they're in at a yard sale.
Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
I'm going to have to get a bigger house if I don't stop going to yard sales.
Help me! Please.
Seriously, tho, I have slowed down a little.
I'm pickier about what I get now.
I have to be, I don't have room for anything else.
The answer to the above question: If you said it was an old floor model radio, you're right! Shelves were inserted and glass doors put on the front.
