Shopping with my Pickin Sisters was a fun day. I met up with Sue and Laurie at our favorite spot. It is not your upscale, clean aisles, organized kind of place. It is a down and get dirty who knows what you will find but you will find some very interesting, one of a kind items, old things, new things, cheap things, and maybe more money then what you think it is worth things. Actually the places where we started out don’t seem like thrift stores it feels more like a warehouse.
The area where we always start at has a few stores owned by different owners. One place was closed, new owners are coming in. We’re looking forward to checking it out the next time around. I found most of my treasures at J & M Auctions. So I ended up with 2 chairs. Yes we all know I have a chair addiction. I am looking for a chair to go with the desk I bought several weeks ago.
This chair may work. The desk is at Laurie’s warehouse so she took it with her so I can figure it out when I go over there to work on the desk. I may keep looking.
The flip top table is an old one. I really had to bargain the sales clerk down. Thrift stores are becoming expensive. Sue gave me a great idea on what to do with it so I can’t wait to get started on it. Stay tuned for that one. Then I was drawn to this little step stool. I don’t plan on doing anything except scrub it down and put some kind of protecterant on it to preserve its chippy look.
Neither one of them came home empty handed. Laurie is the one who really cleaned up. She is in the process of opening her own store, selling gently used items, especially Florida themed pieces. She is a terrific shopper and knows her vintage items. She got a great deal on a Mid Century Modern Chest and Dresser that she needs to pick up.
Sue is gathering up items because she is going to be remodeling her house. One of her favorite things to do is making making and restoring lamps.
Look at the fantastic items she is going to recreate. The mirror will be getting a make over and end up in one of the bathrooms.So I know I said no more shopping until I get some stuff done but I really needed it. How great to spend time with good friends who inspire and encourage. I really did have a fun day shopping with my pickin sisters. And we are all looking forward to another fun day Shopping With My Pickin Sisters in the near future.
