In December 1999 we moved from the big city to Fayette County in Central Texas to a vintage California - style white stucco bungalow that was in need of some TLC. Little did we know that we were locating just 16 miles south from the area of the Warrenton and Round Top Antiques Weekend... perfect! After all this time we still love it here and are almost done with the house. Oh, that's such a lie!
I got inspired to go do some thrifting yesterday after I watched this You Tube video from Mad Maine where she had a $30.00 budget to spend. So go check it out, I know you'll be amazed at what treasures she found and why I decided to go see what I could dig up!
Now, I know I have plenty of inventory already but you know what? We live out in the country, so I try to combine my outings with getting as much accomplished as I can.
A few weeks ago, Noel and I decided it was time to get our eyes examined and I needed to get my new glasses adjusted. To make this a worthwhile 100 mile round-trip, I first went to the thrift stores, three of them in fact. After I finished thrifting, I went to Walmart to get my glasses adjusted, did a little grocery shopping, and cruised on home ...It worked out great!
First stop was a shop I had never been to before and I was excited! Misplaced excitement as it turned out, but I found a few things and spent $4.00.
5 Needlepoint & Crafting pamphlets, a little 5 X 8 notebook,
and a really pretty
Lefton Holly China Christmas Tree relish dish.
I collect the dark green Lefton Holly Berry pieces like this one like this one I found here, so this dish is headed on over to the Texas Treasure Box Shop over at the Grand Oaks Antique Mall.
And if you are interested in making your very own
Rodeo Drive Designer Denim Jacket, well, I've got just the thing for you!
