What $4.95 will buy you at the thrift shop today!

I just got home from running some errands.  I had to go pick up the library scrapbook from the library so that I would have it when I set up tomorrow at the Chocolate Affair.  It is from 10 till 2 at the middle school.  Stop by and say "Hi!".  I also made a stop at Pamida for catfood, kitty litter, and peanut butter M&M's (yum!).  Today's picture shows the goodies that I picked up today for a total of $4.95!  Candle wicking thread that I will use to run through buttons as accents, the tiniest little straw brooms that I have ever seen, these will be perfect for a Halloween project that I have in mind and there are 4 of them in the package, a package of boning (works great for nursing coverup's), 1/8" pink ribbon, a package of 25 blank cards and 25 envelopes, a stack of fabric squares, and last but not least.....a brand new tube of  Denise Austin renewing facial cleanser Green Tea, to keep all those wrinkles that will be appearing after I am OVER THE HILL....on the 14th!  LOL  I am very happy with my little pile of goodies.  I love DEALS!!!


  1. Wow, you got some really good stuff! I keep saying I need to go over to the thrift shop there when I am at the cottage! Kari likes a good thrift shop too so maybe we can get over there sometime this year and then see or meet you for lunch somewhere.

  2. Hi Elaine. I love Dollar Stores, so much you can pick up for so little :) Just wondering what the boning is for and what do you mean by "nursing coverups"? Love your blog...........Jen

  3. Would love to meet you two for lunch Corrine. That would be fun. It won't be long now till it is cottage time!
