Over a month and a half. That's how long it had been since I went to any yard sales or thrift shops. No I didn't put myself on a shopping diet. I don't know what happened. Life I guess. With the holidays, baby drama, and a wet December shopping with the last thing on my mind. Hard to believe but it's true.
This weekend I broke my shopping fast and hit the few garage that I was able to find. It really has been raining a lot around here and for some reason usually on Saturdays. Since it rained on Friday there weren't too many brave people who were willing to bring out there trash, oops I mean treasures to their semi dry front lawn. But I was able to find a wood rocking chair for my princess for only $4.00! It's really nicely made and worth much more then $4.00. Other then that the sales were a bust.
But now that I got the taste of shopping again I couldn't resist and the next day made a trip to a couple of my favorite thrift stores. I didn't over indulge but I was able to come home with some button down Ralph Lauren dress shirts (those always sell well for me especially in larger sizes), a few Tommy Bahama silk shirts (can't stay away from Hawaiian shirts), and my surprise find of the day, a Steiff doll. I didn't even know they made dolls. This is my first Steiff find and I haven't researched it at all but I'm sure I can at least make back my $2.00 investment.
