Thrifty Hunting

For the last 2-3 months on most weekends, I have enjoyed garage/estate/thrift saling so much !  I have discovered that I'm pretty good at it too.  Not only do I find treasures, but I also get to meet nice and very interesting people, like I did with Carol.  Carol teaches a class on how to make your own fresh mozzarella cheese and yogurt at one of the local community centers.  I am signing up to take this class from her in October. 
I'm working on bringing a feminine touch to our home here in Minnesota with things I like and make me happy.
This is my dresser in our bedroom and above it is a bookshelf, which I have removed all of the books (except for one) and made it my own.
Thank God for very generous relatives! 
Laura, Hubby's cousin, has been cleaning out her house, and I happen to be the very lucky and grateful recipient!  Thank you Laura!
 It amazes me how all of these three pieces go together.  The radio belonged to her Dad.
 I fell in love with this clock, bunny and tiny little frame!

 I have a love for purses, mostly leather, but recently I have developed a love for vintage purses.  I found this one at an antique store.  It was my lucky day.  The store was running a 50% of discount at this one booth.  Mine!!!
 Now this purse, I found at an estate sale.  It was the last day for this sale, and I came home with it for a mere $1.  Both purses were made in Japan.

The light tan basket/bag has been my summer schlepping bag, or as I call it "my Birkin Bag"!  It has leather handles and it was only $1.
The small dark basket on the top shelf will become my sewing basket.
I see I have more space on the top shelf...which means...I just have to continue hunting for special treasures!


  1. LOVE the old radio! We have a few ourselves that we bought at an estate sale! So unique!
    Keep Cool!

  2. You have found some super treasures and the cheese class sounds like so much fun. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
