This post almost didn't happen. I actually waited until the last three days of July to do any kind of thrifting, but then I just couldn't take it anymore.
Initially, I just wanted to get out of the house and walk around so I went to a large antique mall. However, I didn't find much. While there, I kept feeling pulled to a certain small charity shop. So, I gave in even though it was pouring rain.
I unearthed this treasure trove of linens and lace, all for less than ten bucks!
Since I felt like I was in a good groove, I headed over to Goodwill for a quick walk-through.
I scored a couple of unique tins and some butterknives. The tin in the front was packed full of old Uno cards. I originally thought that I would re-donate them, but instead, I'm using some of them as bases for my #SouthernGals5Min challenge on Instagram.
The Dollar Tree is in the same shopping center as Goodwill, so it had to be visited too.
I picked up a few crafting materials along with some other odds and ends.
I was itching to hit up a couple more stores a town over, but the weather made me wait to see how I felt later. The following day, I was raring to go and visited three more thrift stores. However, only the first one had anything I needed to bring home.
This sweet deal on books had me digging through the bins.
And, there were a LOT of bins.
I was digging in them for a while.
And, I got TWENTY BOOKS!
I also found this little tin of buttons that I couldn't pass up.
I was fairly certain I was done for the month when I had a few minutes while picking up lunch to run into Five Below and found this steal on fountain pens.
