I hope you all had a great week! I have been so excited to show you my thrifty treasure for this! Okay, because I am a very good daughter, I will tell you that this thrift find was actually my mom’s thrift find for me.
We have a family cabin in Northern Michigan. It is waaaaaay back in the woods. It is one of those places that you can truly escape the world for awhile if you want to (which I ALWAYS seem to want to! LOL). My parents went up there last week to open it up for the summer. While they were there, my mom did a little adventuring and came across an auction being held at a church. And of course, being MY mom, she had to stop and check it out. Well let’s just say she ROCKED this auction! And she had to make several trips out to the truck to load up her treasures. And her total spent?
Sound familiar? Where do you think I learned to thrift from?
Apparently the main attraction to this particular auction was the tools, which of course, they held until the very end. So, nobody was really interested in anything else. The auctioneer realized this so just raced through what odds and ends he had up .
My mom is always looking for inexpensive blankets, sheets, towels etc for the cabin. So, she spotted a pile that had blankets, sheets and pillow cases in it. The auctioneer couldn’t get anyone to bid on them until my mom raised her hand when he said, “Anyone? $1.00?”
Mom was happy. But, then as she sat there waiting to see what else might come up, she saw the auctioneer telling the people that were helping, “Nobody is going to want to bid on that. They all want tools and we need to get this going. So, add all of those things to that lady who bought the blankets. She can get rid of it if she wants to”. Mom had no idea what were in those boxes but, hey, that is the fun part. She she just took everything back to the cabin.
And she gave me this!
Let’s see what we have….
Let’s sneak a peek inside….
Now, to the rest of the box.
Looks like I will be doing some quilting this winter!
Can you believe all of this plus the stuff my mom kept for $1.00!
Well, that was my….er….mom’s thrifty finds for this week! Now seriously, don’t you think my mom needs a blog? Every time I suggest it, she looks at me as if I am speaking Klingon.
