Thrifty Thursday - July Thrifty Haul

 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.


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.

So far, they're working pretty well for me. I know they're not fancy, but great practice for when I decide to try real ones again. 

Oh, and I can't help but share some of the funnies from my thrifting adventures. First, there was this puzzle.
Something about the timing of it tickled me. 
While in the same store, I saw an elderly gentleman pick up a Shake Weight and giggle over it. Seriously. It was a good thing my face was hidden behind a mask!

There were a few other finds that you didn't get to see in this reveal, but they are in my July Thrifty Haul video along with a look at ALL the books!
So, were you able to get out any over the month and thrift? I'd love to know what you found!
