I don't actually have anything to share this week! I actually tried a bunch of new recipes, but I completely forgot to photograph anything, so maybe next time. What I do want to share is my very cool and awesome first-ever thrifting find. In the next town over we actually have a Salvation Army, a Goodwill, and a Savers, all within 2 miles of each other. I decided to check them out after reading Traci's thrifting post over at All Things Luci Rae. You should definitely read it and follow the link because the two articles will make you want to go out and find junk. Trust me.
So today while the grandparents were over and I was able to sneak out of the house to shop alone (woo hoo!) I decided to see what I could find. I started at the Salvation Army and I wasn't too impressed. They were having a clearance sale and there wasn't too much to be had. I headed down to the Savers and got lost. Completely. I can't believe how many brand new books, board games, toys, you name it they had. Now, there was junk. J-U-N-K. But in between and around the junk was some great stuff. When we get to board games age, I am totally going to buy a nearly new game for $3.
My big find was shoes. I love shoes. Love love love shoes. And right out of the gate I found a pair of Clarks Artisan flats, in my size, that have no wear marks whatsoever. They are lovely. $6. Score! Wandering around the racks I spied the toddler shoes and figured I'd take a peek. Gus goes through shoes quickly and I hate to pay a lot. Behold:
The most adorable Merrill's I ever saw. Brand new- look! No wear! In his size! $5! Do you know how much those would be brand new?! Mine, all mine! I was so excited, and spent so much time in Savers that I didn't have time to go to Goodwill. Something to look forward to.
Ok, ok, enough about me. I really want to see what you've been working on this week. So please link up your post (your direct post link, not your blog homepage) below. Hop around and see what other people have been up to, too. Leave a comment or two- we all love them! And grab a button if you like (I promise I'll work on a better one)!
