Thrift Store Haul

K needed some suspenders in order to dress like a geek some day this week, so we scheduled a thrift store outing for today. I get excited just pulling in the parking lot, wondering what I will find. She found suspenders. I found some spring table linens- we use a table cloth a day and about 6 or 8 napkins so I’m always on the lookout.

I’m not sure what this hammered metal stuff is called, but it brings back some childhood memory, and this was such a sweet little tray.

I couldn’t pass this sweet little picture by. It says on the back that Ruth Rae embroidered it in 1984. All of those stitches and french knots. I just couldn’t leave it there.

And I love this picture frame made of rolled magazine pages!

Was it the Unique Thrift?
Boy -- do I miss that place!
I'll be hitting the Goodwill this week to freshen up the hole left by my Valentines decorations. Easter -- here we come!

You got some great stuff! I love it all. The frame is wonderful and the hand done picture a treat!

Please tell K that when I need to dress like a geek, a trip to the thrift store is not necessary. All I do is open my closet and all the geek clothes are waiting for me.

Oh, Suzanne. They have another store now since you lived here. Still have the one in Portland, but we have better luck at the Preston Highway store. It's great.
Donna, sadly after all of the effort, we have another school snow day today- the day they were to dress like geeks. I'm not totally sure she ever got her mind around what a geek is, probably because she's a bit geekish herself.
