Even with a garage full of stuff I just cannot stop pickin, read here, here and here for other past adventures. On the way to an appointment I decided I had time to stop at a little historical area that has a St Vincent De Paul’s thrift store along with a few vintage/antique shops.
And I did have a purpose, I needed to stock the shop. And because the tiered stands I made sold, I wanted to make more. I needed supplies.
That was my downfall. I found 2 wooden bowls, which is good but then I saw it. A plain, little table with a drawer.
It was reasonably priced plus 20% off. So I would regret it if I didn’t buy it. I have plenty of those regrets for not getting something and going back and duh of course it isn’t there.
Not happening this time. Besides little tables with a drawers do quite well. So since I still had time, I stopped at an antique store that was actually open. Generally when I am in the area the store is closed. The dealer specializes in midcentury modern but has a myriad of items.
I really could have spent a longer time browsing but needed to get going. Not before I spied a wash tub. It looks like it is cross between enamelware and galvanized metal. The proprietor told me the price, I put it down and then told myself it really is worth it. It came home with me.
Now I was in the mood so after my appointment I was driving by a big box thrift store and thought why not. I found some candlesticks and met a very nice lady who was looking for candlesticks also. She was going to make a bird feeder. I was going to make tiered stands.
This particular thrift store sells mostly clothes and has a very small furniture area but why not look. I saw the most beautiful chair. Ok maybe not in its present state but I know I will make it beautiful.
So even though I don’t need to go thrifting I just cannot stop pickin. I even included a picture of a picnic basket, lamp and paper towel holder that I bought last week. I have it bad. I am afraid I will miss the perfect treasure. Is that how you feel?
