On the weekend, Dave and I were out and about running errands. We stopped for lunch, and while we were eating, I looked out the window of the restaurant and noticed a Salvation Army Thrift shop across the parking lot.
I don’t know if it’s new, or if it’s always been there and I never noticed, but I asked Dave if he would mind checking it out. Dave’s always up for a bit of thrifting so we finished our lunch and went over.
Dave didn’t find anything that tickled his fancy, but I sure did!
The lamps are now giving much needed light to our evenings in our living room, but the real score was those bins. Practically brand new, they were only $6 each – they go for about $30 each from Walmart.
And I was in desperate need for something to contain the quickly multiplying fabric stash!
It was hard to get a good shot because my room is so small, but those pink bins, and the tri-colour one contain nothing but quilting fabric – all nice and organized.
Now I just need to clear out some of my other crafting stuff (mostly jewelry making), and I’ll have the room completely ship-shape.
Oh – and you may have noticed something else in that first picture
I didn’t really need them but they were far too cute to pass by… I do so love thrifting!
