Tuesday Time to Tackle: Thrift Store Shopping

If you have a free afternoon for shopping, where do you like to go?  While I do enjoy perusing craft/fabric stores and garden nurseries, most often if I want to shop, I head to a thrift or antique store.  I never know what I will find, but I know I might score a bargain.

Last week, I found quite the deal.  


This looked like something my granddaughter would enjoy, and something my daughter would appreciate.  It definitely needed a good cleaning, and it was missing batteries, but with a price tag of $1.99, I thought it was worth it.  Oh, and did I mention it was 30% off the listed price?  Happy dance time!

After the seat cover went through the wash, everything else got cleaned up with disinfectant wipes, and batteries were installed, I ended up with a wonderful gift for my granddaughter.  It plays music, and the seat gently vibrates.  When the purple or green butterflies are pulled, the bluebird spins around.  I think it's pretty cool; I hope she likes it, too!

Have you found any good bargains lately?  

Thanks for music, cheerful colors, and a granddaughter.

  1. You scored a great find.

    I enjoy shopping and browsing thrift shops, too. Most of all, I enjoy the "hunt" and the challenge.

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
