A Thrifting I Will Go!

I was in some desperate need of some retail therapy today. So I loaded the kids up and we headed to St. Vincent's in search of...well, not really anything in particular (which can sometimes be dangerous for me). Luckily, there weren't so many treasures that I spent a ton of money, but I did walk away with some fun things! Check it out:

First, I got two mens' shirts that I will be using for a tutorial I am cooking up. Stay tuned for that.

Sheet Music from 1938. Gotta love us some vintage sheet music!

A bag of trims. I like looking in the "Odds and Ends" bins by the fabric. Sometimes you can find some fun little things. I love this lace and I think I will use it in some future garter designs for the Shop.

I found this pink hounds-tooth, yummy goodness in the fabric bins! This stuff can get spendy, but if you find it, you GRAB IT! This fabric will become some clutches that I want to sell in the Shop.

And last but not least, a tea pot. You might not think this is a huge find, but I am planning a "Fancy Nancy Tea Party" for my daughter's 5th birthday and this is one of the many items that will be used for decorating and creating a fun table-scape. Love it! Plus, it was only $2!!!! Can I get a What What?!

The Grand Total for this little trip was........$10.57! Not too shabby if you ask me!
