Thrifty Thursday...

Been a LONG time, but took a little trip to my fave thrift stores this week... the antiques booth has been largely neglected over the holidays and really need some items to freshen it up.  So what goodness did I find, you ask?  For the booth...


Love this little circa 1950's shabby wicker shelf... perfect to replace another little shelf I just sold.  I could have 100 cute chachkes in the crappiest of shelves and I promise you they will pull everything out of it and buy the shelf.  GO FIGURE.  Which is why I price every single thing in the booth, even if I intended it to be a "fixture" because sure enough, the fixture is what they want.

What else did I find for the booth?  Nada.  Zip. Zilch.... yep, sad face.  

Lest you think my trip was wasted, fear not!  I discovered one of my thrift haunts now has a "boutique" room... and BAM, turned that frown upside down.

I have been thrifting for antiques/furniture for years, but never shopped the clothes/shoes/accessories sections... until I started reading so many great everyday women fashion blogs and caught wind of some of their amazing finds.  Discovered this website from a Nate Berkus segment (love me some Nate!), http://lookingflyonadime.com,  Check it out, cuz' this woman will rock your world with her cheap chic thrift finds.  Anywhoodle... 


 Jones New York animal print scarf, wood bead and silver necklace, tortoise shell and black beaded necklace and vintage pearl and crystal beaded necklace... grand total?  $27... BAM!  I have been loving scarves, animal print, and all things tortoise shell lately.  Happy face.

But the grand finale?  The icing on the cake?
The cherry on top of the sundae (can you tell I'm hungry)? 


Wait for it...

 wait for it... 



Brand new, never worn, my size, SOOOOO comfy... $5.00.  FIVE BUCKS, people!  Got my name written ALL over them.  BOO-YAH!

Aw, snap! I love finding deals at the thrift store. It can be really hit or miss, but when you find the right thing, it's so worth the effort.

Denver fans can pick up United States of Tara at many local retailers. According to the complaint, Galvan was seen on a replay of the "granny cam" removing the victim's oxygen mask and negligently, carelessly, recklessly and intentionally striking her while employed by the Harborage nursing home. Trained nurses can be assigned to assist you in these challenging tasks. Today, the world is progressing at a very fast pace and along with that the medical field, industrial field and all other major fields are growing too. We have been assured they have personnel working 'around the clock,' yet only six personnel are assigned to the team, and of those, three recently went on vacation.
