Score at the Thrift store!

I had a few minutes to kill today and popped into one of my local thrift stores. This store is hit or miss. They have reasonable prices (unlike one of the chain thrift stores in town) and are always willing to bargain with you! I think the manager recognizes me now when I come in. They know I am going to look at frames and furniture!

Today I got this awesome little enamel cart with wheels! (I left it outside so I will add a picture in the morning!) for only $3.00. I also got a cute rustic shelf that is perfect for books in my son's room. It'll be getting a coat of black paint ASAP.

The manager told me someone had bought the contents of a storage unit at auction, picked out what they wanted and dropped the rest off on the sidewalk in front of the rescue mission thrift shop. I wish I had my camera with me. It literally looked like someone dumped a trash truck on the sidewalk! I felt bad they were having to dig through it.....someones trash is definitely not always anothers treasure! Sometimes it is just TRASH!

Anyway, I can't wait for a little sunlight to show you my new little treasures! I was so excited about the enamel table that I stopped at Lowe's on my way home and got the perfect color green to paint it! Guess you guys know what will be coming up on here in a few days! :)
