Love it

Most of you know I love to shop, and that I do a lot of bargain shopping at most. Lately I’ve been visiting the local consignment shops and our Salvation Army store. I have found some really nice things, and am so excited about them. My latest find we‘re some real linen table clothes, I love keeping my dinner table set and I use real table napkins with my setting, these white linen napkins are beautiful, I couldn’t believe no one else swiped them up let alone the person who gave them up lol, well I’m grateful. I also found some regular cotton green napkins just to switch up from my daily red ones and they will come in handy at Christmas time. I also found me another Armarilus plant in red and it is the center piece for my table. I love it when I find great things in what others think is trash. estatic

    • I love to yard sale. I find great things I love to get old furniture and redo it. It is so much fun looking through all this junk but what do they say another persons junk is someone else treasure. I love using my imagination and taking these things and reinventing them. I love to set my table also I have gotten some table cloths also I like to paint little flowers on them or take those plastic chargers and paint a something pretty on them then use a clear class plate to eat off it is absolutely beautiful. I also love to use wine glasses even when we dont drink wine. I paint palm trees or flowers on them also. Love love making things nice.

    • Second hand stores have always been my favortie place to shop, as well as salvaging at the local dump (which I’ve been doing this afternoon).    

      I rarely buy new anything for my house.  I either find and repurpose things, get stuff at auctions or the thrift shop.  Even my kitchen sink came from the thrift store for $2.

    • I don’t have much use for garage sales or places like TJMaxx. All the chaos inside deities my OCD crazy. However I do like to go to small well organized second hand shops. I have shopped Tuesday Mornings and Homegoods since they are a bit more organized.  

      I do like going to the really big flea markets since they are broke down into small sections. I seem to be able to handle that ok estatic

    • I have to think back to the last time I have shopped for anything else but the essentials, need a road trip..lol.

      We have a couple of huge flea markets further up in the country, so hub and I try to hit them once a year.  I’m like Vikki..don’t like chaos, I prefer to do small bits of shopping at off times during the day..have narrowed it down to between 10:00 & 12:00 or 1:00 and 3:00, then I can take my time and really take a look at things.  I am more of a reasonably priced boutique gal, there are so many interesting items in places like that.happy
