Thrifty Tuesday

I braved the crowds yesterday at Value Village for the 25% off. Surprisingly I found a cart right away and did not have to beat anyone up to get one. Nothing on the sheets or sewing front. It's kind of been blah in that department lately. Not that I need anymore fabric, right Karyn?

So I found two old children's books. Actually, we were in the children's book section and Isaiah pulled a bunch off the shelf and threw them into out cart. So technically, Isaiah found these. This was about the only time that I was glad for him to pull something off the shelf!

I also found this cute Vera scarf. I just love the colors.
And my most favorite find of the day, these darling figurines.
I hesitated at first, but I couldn't resist. They are just so cute. I think there was another one, but someone had broken it into a million pieces. I was cursing that person, I tell you! Anyway, after the 25% off, I think the pair came out to be like $3. Can't beat that! Too bad I don't have a little girl because these could be used for their 1st, 4th, and 14th birthday! haha. Oh, maybe someday. (Although I think I'm cursed to have all boys. It's just a feeling. Not that having all boys would be that bad. I just want a little girl to sew for!)
Whoa.. I just check these out online and they're worth $25 or more each! Yay me!

I hear some more resin pendants calling my name. Thanks for all your positive feedback yesterday!

LOL!! Good girl, not buying any more fabric, but I suspect had there been anything good to buy, you would have!!
Yes yes yes!! More pendants!!

Isn't it fun to find something at the thrift store and then find out they're actually worth something? Woohoo!

Nice finds. The little figurines are darling.

Girls are fun, I can't deny it. Not everyone has to have 4 boys to get a girl, though, so maybe your chances are good.
