Remember that time I spent an entire weekend with two of my favorite bloggy buddies (Kim and Michelle) and we went thrifting?
Well. I just so happened to come home with some treasures.
First up, this sweet little canister. I was drawn to every single red item we saw that day (natural side effect of being a redhead), but when I saw this one it was love at first sight. However, since I have commitment issues when it comes to spending money I walked around with it for another hour before biting the bullet and actually buying it. (It was $6. I have issues.)
Anyway, I think it will make a lovely addition to our (yet to be created) open shelves in the kitchen.
We also hit up the local Salvation Army, where I spotted this soap dispenser for $6.75. And since I'd been using Kim's identical dispensers all weekend and loved them I snatched it right up.
I'm pretty sure it's a step or two up from the plastic Aldi dispenser in our bathroom right now.
Two tangible reminders of a stellar weekend with friends!
That adventure also confirmed that I'm a better group thrifter than I am a solo thrifter. I easily get overwhelmed by all the STUFF, but exploring with friends was the perfect way to enjoy huge antique malls. We got some good laughs out of what we found for sale, but also dug through the piles and found some treasures.
Any good thrifting finds recently? Are you a solo thrifter or do you prefer to thrift in groups?
