Thrifting Surprises on Saturday

I mentioned on this post, that I would be decorating my sunroom on Saturday and I spent the afternoon happily digging out my favorite Easter decorations.

Before I show off my finished Easter tree and sunroom shelf, I have to share my Saturday morning thrifting/antiquing splurges. Emma had to be picked up from a slumber party, library books needed to be returned, and a few items needed to be purchased from the grocery store...all of these things were "near" my favorite antique store and mission thrift store, so naturally I had to stop by...hee hee. Let's just say, the thrifting stars were definitely aligned.

I scored all this ric rac AND lace for $2 at my favorite mission thrift store!!


My favorite antique dealer also had several wonderful Easter items available for very reasonable cost.

One of my favorite items that came home with me is this Donkey Party game.

I bought it for the graphics on the box, but it came with all its pieces and the best part is the party game book.



Last but not least, I purchased this delightful owl pin. I have a HUGE obsession with anything owl related...which is a post for another day.


All in all, a great Saturday filled with fun purchases.
Pictures of my Easter tree and my sunroom decorations coming soon.

Love the ricrac!! I would have grabbed that as well. Excellent finds!

GardenofDaisies said...

I have a big box of lace, trim and ric-rac, similar to those, on a shelf in my sewing closet. Mostly from the 70's, when I did the bulk of my sewing. LOL, I still run to that box anytime I need trim for a craft project.

The Donkey Party game is soooo cute, the package would have sold me on it alone. I can never pass up packages of lace and ric rac--great shopping day.
