When I go to a thrift store I usually pick up some cheap knitting needles or a vintage crochet pattern or something little to tuck in my bag. But there are times where you find an item so awesome, so perfectly what you wanted that you will do crazy things like drag it home on a bus, train and another bus (and a 10 minute walk at the end) just because…if you’re a thrifter you’ll know why I did it:
Totally worth it. I thrifted a dolls cradle in 2008 but I had no space to keep it. This time…it’s a keeper and I’ll make space if I have to! I’m going to remove the stickers, give it a sand and repaint it. The dolls stroller I got recently is waiting for the rest of the first coat of paint still but since summer is now decidedly gone I will need to finish both of these asap. It needs a new mattress and quilt made too, painting and sewing. Yay!
