The Thrifty Gods Are No Where Around

So I finally got to go Estate saling last weekend and there were actually a few sales in town. So I was so excited and driving all the way across the fricken state to find barely anything! What, the heck! It seems that the sales were all really well picked over for the sale day, usually I always find some awesome stuff but this time, I just kept driving and driving. Finally on my last sale I found the stuff in the photo.
I did come upon some cool vintage pinking shears in the original box for 2 bucks and some old flowers, and a tin. I sweat though I spent at least 15 bucks on the gas driving all over the place. Oh well!

So unfortunately I have a Baptism this Sunday, so the Thrift Gods won't be looking out for me this weekend either. This is so bad I feel like an addict waiting for my next fix. So thank you to everyone else that is posting pics of your finds, at least I can share in the joy of your great finds! Until Then!

You poor thriftless thing! I live in a teeny town in the midwest, chock full of old "junk" that ends up in the thrifts just waiting for me to swoop down upon it!

I think that I find the most stuff when I spend the least time looking for it. Sort of a wait for it to come to me approach. LOL
