Howdy ladies! Hope this blog post finds you all doing well. I’ve had a hectic week and not as much time to blog as Id like, and as I am now doing guest blogging over at the Loft Organic foods blog, that makes my blogging time even more divided! Oh well, life before blog, right? (Right?….)
I had a chance to stop in to one of my favourite new thrift stores this past week- The Bibles For Missions shop in our small city of Kitchener, Ontario. I love this little shop we found last year when we moved to the city- not only are the prices fabulously cheap (earlier in the year I got a large Le Crueset dutch oven there for TWO DOLLARS. TWO. They retail for over 300 dollars!) becuase they are an all-volunteer-run store so that helps keep the costs down, but all the proceeds go to a great cause- buying bibles! Free bibles are available at the front of the store, too, which is excellent. If you live in the KW area, check it out for sure.
So here are the groovy finds I made out with:
all the loot
someone with my exact same taste in magazines donated their stash!! I almost never buy magazines new because they are so bleetin’ expensive- but these were a quarter each!
just in time to get me in the mood for the season!
these were fantastic finds- all 1.50 each and in perfect shape! I have a hard time finding Christian fiction I enjoy, but i do like Frank Peretti and Ive been meaning to give Jan Karon a try. Anyone like these authors?
I am just starting to learn to sew (on a machine I got at this thrift store for 18 dollars!) and I was excited to find this old pattern set for kid’s stuffed animals as Id like to start making them for Bird instead of buying them. Only 50 cents!
we eat a lot food in this house where I need sectional dishes, like mexican food, salad bars, etc. I was excited for find this divided serving set, 2.00!
I also stocked up on cards, 2 for 25 cents, and now have a nice stash instead of paying the exorbitant price you pay for retail
I especially loved these cards with the Japanese woodblock prints on them- look at this detail below of a mother and child- precious!
Thanks for coming along with me on my trip to the thrift store! Blessings, ladies!
