Today’s Haul August 24, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — swankylady @ 5:42 pm

A pink plastic flower necklace with rhinestones! I'm in love!

another poodle for my insane collection

large nautical themed scarf

cute little Christmas angels

an apron and two 1950s paperbacks (or "bodice-rippers", as my cousin heard them once called)!

Thrifting was good in the neighborhood today, even though we only made two quick stops. “Power thrifting”  is not for the faint of heart; much like power walking, it gets your blood pumping. You have to scan the shelves with the shrewd fierceness of an eagle on the hunt for prey. This is no time to wait for the oblivious lady blocking the aisle with her cart to move aside-knock her out of the way! Alright, I was just kidding about that last part. But you do have to up your game a little on power thrifting trips. I prefer the leisurely kind. I like to flip through every old record, every linen, every framed picture.  Today was not one of those days. It was still a fun time, though! 🙂
