Thrifty Finds


Spent a entire day looking for stuff in thrift stores, we have tons of really good ones! I'm in search of so many things, with our big move coming up. For Easter Sunday I found a church that I was interested in and since going the first time have been going every Sunday. Caleb loves his church and the chance to learn about God and Jesus. I have tried several other churches here in this city, however never a place I KNEW I belonged. I know now, its fantastic and reminds me of the one I went to in TX.
 
So, on the hunt for dresses/ skirts/ shoes and jewelry from thrifting! I didn't get a chance to post but I did find 3 separate pieces for church! All were under 10$ each, cant beat it! Talk about saving money. Same went for Caleb, I scored long sleeve button up/collared shirts with ties for 3$ and they look great.
 
Additional to that, I'm on the hunt for some things for the apartment like: headboard, vintage items for Caleb's room makeover I'm working on, side table, end tables, coffee tables etc. etc.
 
I have been hunting on Craigslist for weeks and already scored: heavy metal outside table and matching chairs, totally chic! I re-purposed and looks fab! Then got a nice hutch computer desk and two awesome bar stools. I'm so excited for this place for my son and I, it will be our own haven of solitude and peace.
 
 
items found:
tree cups 0.49 each x2
blue kids tie 0.80
bad mittens 2.91 each x2
new old navy flip flops 4$
silver/gold dress shoes 4$
kids constellation finder 2$
