Now that that’s out of the way, look at my pretty new car 🙂
She’s quite the charmer. We’re calling her Vera. Classy name for a classy car. Which is my first car ever by the way. MINE MINE MINE!!!!! Hooray! Sorry to bother you all with my excitement. I hope you don’t mind!
This blog is majorly pointless. I’m telling you now. So turn back if you are searching for some purpose. It’s my show off blog. My car, my thrifting, & my couponing. Why? Because it’s my blog & I want to! Just like that’s my car!
So anyhow, I have to share a secret about thrift store & craft supplies. They are very dear friends. I recently discovered the huge amount of CRAZY CHEAP craft supplies you can usually find at thrift stores. I haven’t paid over $2 for one thing. Going into Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or Jo-Ann’s is a very bad thing for me. I spend quite a bit of money on things. Granted, things I will use. But I wasted a lot of time not looking at the thrift stores for supplies first. Of course, there will be several things you just can’t get at second hand stores. It’s just a tip worth taking!
For example, I paid about $3 for all of this thread. At an average craft/fabric store, each spool would’ve been at least a dollar & a half, if not more. I only buy them if they are still full & not used, obviously.
Other than that, I just want you to see these darling shoes I picked up there! As well as a few other items. Like the Vogue Sewing Book for $4!! It’s like an encyclopdeia-full of great information inside & photos.
It’s true, thrift store are full of junk mostly. Dirty, Smelly Junk. Sifting through all the junk proves worth it sometimes though, like today. Just be sure to keep some hand sanitizer handy 😉
