I spent far FAR too much money at the thrift store this month. I am embarrassed to admit how much I spent. When we moved I was gutted to find that this suburb has only one thrift store. It turns out that a suburb with only one thrift store and lots of old people who die and leave estate lots to that one thrift store can be a very very good thing. I’d prefer not to reveal the true size of my habit/hobby/obsessive compulsive addiction to you but here is the top three picks:
– The motherlode of vintage embroidered linens. Most of them are from one estate lot and bought this week. I have looked for a long long time to buy linens like these. Some are cutters, some look unused and I see buntings, cushions and many other things. And some are so pretty I might just keep them as is. I’m beyond embarrassed at how much this lot has cost me but you and I both know it was worth every penny and I’d do it again in a second. But perhaps for the sake of my joint bank account privileges and relationship May might be a fiscal fast month. Hiding receipts from your partner is one thing. Hiding them from yourself is a bad sign!
