My sister and I still try to meet up 3-4 times a month for a thrift & coffee date. Here are some pics from two of those times. The little Hummel doll is in sad shape, but he was just too cute to leave in the bins armless (his head is about to fall off too) The thrift shops have started putting out Christmas items, which is just a reminder of how quick it’s going to creep up on us all.


Have I mentioned that housewares are a weakness of mine when it comes to thrift shopping? They are easy to justify buying, because of course they are useful, and so lovely. I’m very very slowly accumulating pretty silverware to replace our boring plain stuff. As I get a “new” butter knife or two, two plain ones get donated. I quite like mis-match, and digging through silverware bins for something special.
