Last week after I dropped the princess off at school, I saw a sign for an estate sale. Since this was my first day out of the house in over 5 days (the whole nasty bug thing going on at our home), I decided I was in need of some thrifting time!
It was a rainy day, so, only a few people were there. Mostly guys out in the garage. I walked into the small house and instantly saw the living room filled with medical equipment (walkers, shower chairs, chair potties….you get the picture). Not having high hopes, I started walking through the other rooms.
In the kitchen, the entire table was filled with glassware. A big sign stating that all glasses were .05 cents each. Okay then! I found several different sets of glasses I wanted. Okay, not a total loss. I then went into the dining room and saw a set of 6 dining room chairs that needed reupholstered seats but, would work for me.
I headed down stairs. Now this house had a “Michigan basement”. Unfinished, very low ceilings, numerous small dungeon feeling rooms. It was kind of creepy down there, I must confess but, I am a trained professional thrifter! LOL Well, maybe not trained.
A couple of people came downstairs after me. Took one look around. Sniffed the musty air and looked disgusted and headed back upstairs. Not Moi! I’m a picker. I am tough. I showed no fear. And my super-thrifting-powers kicked in and I dug for treasures. And I found several!
I hauled my treasures up those death trap stairs! After a couple of trips up and down and a pound of cobwebs in my hair and on my coat, I felt satisfied!
“Ahhhhhh, it’s good to be back in my world!”
You will be seeing many of my treasures in upcoming posts. but today, I am sharing this one with you.
After grabbing a Kleenex from my pocket full of them, I wiped some of the grim and dust accumulation off of this set. I have never seen this design before. But, I really liked it a lot! And the set was in wonderful condition (minus before mentioned grim and dust).
Let’s check out a couple of fun linkups from last week’s party!
Pamela at From My Front Porch to Yours shared this beautiful thrifty chair that just fit her room perfectly!
And Phyllis from Around the House showed us her fun and so cute potting bench creation!

Okay, let the thriftiness begin! Let's hope Mr. Linky does his job! I will be at the Farmer's Market when this is posted. So, if something goes wrong, it will be later this evening when I can get to it and get it fixed.
