My thrifting days are often done on a whim. Just running errands and I have some extra time. Stop by the nearest thrift shop. Usually it's Goodwill. And this day I was out with my kids and it was the same thing. My eldest needed xray's on his teeth (for braces) and we had some extra time coming home before dinner.
My kids get a $1. spending limit. And this time I held firm. Especially since I had all 3 of them with me. But, they do also get to pick out a book. So it is a firm $2.50. Me, no spending limit. See it, love it, buy it. Because it will not come my way ever again.
And that is how I brought home this perfect vintage hobnail milk glass lamp for $6. I wasn't even sure if it worked. I didn't ask to check it. But the more I looked at it the more perfect it was. It stayed in a bag at home for a week. And when I did pull it out, it was because I had found this perfect lampshade in one of my closets. I told my girl it was going in her bedroom. But I am just too in love with it for now. It will have to stay in my sewing room for a bit longer.
Did you find anything wonderful this week? Then link it up here, because I would love to see it! And visit my friend Stacey to see what she fell in love with this week at her local thrift.
