It’s been way too long since I hit a thrift store. I love thrifting, but for the past few months I’ve restrained myself because I really needed absolutely nothing at all. But, on Monday, I couldn’t stand it any longer. What if there was some really great treasure out there that I was missing out on? So, Olivia and I headed to our local Salvation Army.
My first attempt to get there was foiled. While stopped at a red light, we were rear-ended my a big full-sized truck. My little Toyota Matrix got hurt pretty badly. Olivia cried, I think mostly because she was scarred, and I ended up with a fat lip and some sore muscles. I am pretty bummed with the whole situation. I love our little Matrix and it’s totally paid for. Now I am just waiting for the police report (which takes over a week) and then we can see what the insurance company wants to do.
But, I didn’t let this stop me. The next day I headed to the thrift store in our truck (I’m so grateful we have 2 cars, we didn’t for the first 13 yrs. of marriage). And I came home with this cute Pyrex Pitcher for $3.84 and this beautiful hand made bowl for the same price. Did I really NEED these items? No, but I think this was a pretty harmless $8 to spend. And I know I’ll use both, and probably often.
