How was your weekend? Hope you were able to find some respite from this infernal heat! Being the intelligent person that I am, I chose to actually be IN the heat most of Saturday. Crazy. I know.
My sweet hubby gave me this past weekend off. I didn’t have to do anything I didn’t want to do. I could go out of town, or stay in town. I could shop, nap, thrift, eat out, whatever. He held down the fort & took over the kids. Yeah, I think I’ll keep him. 🙂 So, I hit my first outdoor flea market on Saturday morning in Collinsville, AL & sported a wasp sting within 5 minutes of arriving. Are wasps like a required feature at these things, because they were EVERYWHERE! Thankfully, I’m not allergic, so I just kept going. There were SO many people & the vendors were crazy varied! Something for everyone for sure. I was pretty excited to round a corner & find these lovelies waiting for purchase:
The small one was only $5 and the large one was $20. Later that afternoon, I saw one almost identical to the small one at a consignment store. It was priced at $24. Can you believe it?!
I then drove to the Birmingham area to check out some thrift stores and our Habitat Restore.
I found these pretty pillowcases for $1 each at the Lovelady Thrift Store. Love them!
This cutwork sham was only $.75! I’m a cutwork, battenburg lace nut, so I HAD to have it!
I was also on the hunt for a baker’s rack to put on our covered deck. For months, I have looked for one to no avail. Saturday I came across no less than 6 while thrifting. Can you believe the prices they ask for these things?? They ranged from $75 to $250. WHAT?! Then I found this at our America’s Thrift Store –
$50. Yep. I snagged that one in a hurry for sure! While there I also came across this linen, king size duvet cover for $7, blue striped valance for $2, and damask shower curtain with trim for $5.
It turned out to be a great thrifting weekend & some great Mommy Time (or Time Off!)!
Sunday was truly a day of rest – after I got up at 4:45am and drove to another outdoor flea market. More wasps and LOTS of BRAS?! Bras?? At a flea market?? Crazy. So, I spent about 30 minutes there, filled up with gas & was home in time for worship service. Then I took a nap. Wow. Haven’t had one of those in a while!
I’m linking up to Rhoda’s party! (And hopefully the button will work, so you can hop over there & do the same!)
