~Thrifting Goodness~

There is a thrift store  in downtown Asheboro that I like to visit.  For the month of May, everything in the store is 1/2 price. So, of course,  I've been several times this month and this is what I've picked up recently.


Anyone who knows me, knows that I love vintage stitchery.  These were made in 1961 and gifted to someone for their birthday.  (written on the back) Love the happy colors!  Cute!!


Some of you also know that I collect rolling pins.  See the one in the middle?  The hand carved one?  Yes, I bought that from my favorite thrift store.



And who could resist this vintage pencil sharpener?? This will work great in my shadow box that I plan to make some day, displaying vintage sewing items.  Total spent on all of the above:  $7  I love thrifting! :)

Okay, I see what you mean. This one did not show up in my list. The one of the pictures of the boys is the one that showed up.. so I clicked on the title of your blog to see if you had others and I found this post. I don't know why it didn't show in my list. Blogger must be messing up again...

You did good at the thrift store!!
