October Finds

It's been a little while since I've had time to spend thrifting, which is really quite sad. Somehow, I made it through the warmer months without stepping foot into a flea market either, which is even more depressing.

My mom and I have a lot of things in common, but one of them is a love of thrifting and searching flea markets. It's pretty amazing actually. I'll tell her that I'm looking for a stew pot, and a few days later she'll call and tell me there's a stew pot waiting for me at her house. (This really happened this week. $2!!) That little wooden shoe and kitty statue came from a trip with my mom two weekends ago, where I also picked up two jelly jar glasses with Peanuts characters on them.

The other items came from a day last week when I decided to pop in on my way home from work. A glass milk bottle, some Ball jars, and two terracotta pots and two glass candle holders that are just screaming to be turned into DIY projects.

That same trip I also picked up this caboodle for a friend of mine, and a Chuck Klosterman book for $2!

But I'm saving the best for last. The day I found this gem in the thrift store, my mom and I were cracking up in the middle of the store.

Because who doesn't need a handmade corn-on-the-cob costume?!? This is what thrifting dreams are made of!

Happy Thrifting!!
