My newest hobby this past summer has been going to flea markets and thrift stores. Its like hunting for treasure. Just like what I used to do when I went to the beach as a young girl. I loved to hunt for seashells. I would gather them up like treasure and go home and pour over my seashell book looking to see what I had found.
Anyway, we have a very nice thrift store nearby and I have found many quality items there. On Saturdays, this particular thrift store (ARC) has certain tagged items for half price. I was able to get my girlfriend 6 china dessert bowls and pretty spoons for under $10! (By the way...she loves them.) Below are some pictures of items I have recently picked up. I apologize about the quality of the pics...it is a rainy day today and the house is dark.
Hope you enjoyed the virtual budget shopping trip. Adding up all the items I bought (rounding up + tax) I spent close to $50.00 max. Pretty good wouldn't you say?
