oldcrafty(8)January 25, 2011

Made a good haul yesterday at the local thrift store!!! They had a special going on ....all purple tags .50. I scored a full lenghth all weather coat, was marked $10.00 got it for .50, blue jean jacket, marked $6.00 got it for .50 ,ski pants marked $4.75 for .50 (for DGD) and a watermelon set of serving pieces which included a tray, salt and pepper shaker, 3 small bowls, a glass whatever and a 2 compartment serving bowl with lid and 2 spoons marked $6.00 for .50 for ALL those pieces. And they had some other neat things I couldn't resist. A bird figurine .50, flamingo figurine .50, 2 wire wall pieces 1.50, a wind chime $3.00a small flower shaped bowl.50......my total bill when I walked out was $10.55!!!! I know the clothes aren't garden junk, but a good dael just the same! Smiled all the way to my car!! I see some Spring Fling items in that haul.

You need the coat to go check out your garden or see what is buried under snow at least or shovel it, can't work out if you are cold! I think the cat is a hoot!! I'd smile every time I went by it! The shovel & rooster plaques are really neat too. Great haul & wonderful prices! Jan

So exciting . . . I'm already thinking of things I'd love to create with them. Have a ball. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I just came back from the thrift store and this is what I scored for a $1!! The face is porceline(face for a cast concrete leaf project), and the marble tiles are cool, and the 4"pots are for a "Pot Plant Project" in the back yard(something I saw in a magazine)

Wow oldcrafty! What great stuff for a steal!

And calamity, I cannot wait to see how your concrete project turns out using that face! I can only imagine. Fabulous tiles too, I don't do well working with those in projects, but they always look awesome.
