A Thrifting We Will Go!

What is a person supposed to do when they are waiting for a baby to arrive?


I’m in Sacramento with my step-daughter waiting for my grandson to come into the world.  Out we went this morning (contractions and all) and headed to the thrift stores.  There are a TON here!  It was very surprising to see how many were open on a Sunday.

Here are my finds:

Lots of good finds

I was on a mission for candlesticks!

Great frames for my wall gallery that I’m working on.

Happy Halloween sign that was .43 cents!

I’m picturing these black and distressed!

These little dessert plates are going to be my Christmas gifts this year.  Add some homemade brownies or cookies, wrap in some cellophane….done!  People love to receive these because they can be re-used for serving, re-gifting or just setting out on the kitchen cabinet with fruit or a little what-not.  Add a dome (which I had NO luck finding today)…ADORABLE.

Plate .49 cents
Candle stick $1.00


If “we” don’t have a baby tonight, we are visiting thrift stores on the OTHER side of town tomorrow!  I’m on a hunt for more wooden, chunky candlesticks and domes. The hunt is on!!!! Wish me luck.

Don’t forget to come back tomorrow night for Highlights from Linky Party #6!  We had GREAT linkups this week!
