Further Thrifting

This post is just a brief update on my thrifting ventures. Last week I returned to the thrift store where I found a nice $1.00 wood spoon rack and a lovely $2.00 lamp shade for the $3.00 lamp I had bought there a couple weeks ago.

The white fabric shade is very shapely. As it turned out it is too small for the lam,; so I must look some more. I also got two Corning ware casserole dishes, two crystal votive candleholders and a Nantucket style basket with glass votive liner.

For my $1.00 bag of books I found three cookbooks, a gardening book, and a children’s art book to send for my grandniece and grandnephews.
Julia and Jacques: Cooking at Home by Julia Child and Jacques Pepin
Great Taste Low Fat Vegetables
Mary Engelbreit’s Recipe for Happiness (An Antioch Gourmet Gift Book)
Better Homes & Gardens Shrubs (The Gardener’s Collection)
Leonardo’s ABC: Sharing Leonardo da Vinci With Children by Carolyn C. DeCristofano

Two more books on Diana for my collection:
Diana The Last Year by Donald Spotto
Requiem: Diana Princess of Wales 1967-1987 edited by Brian McArthur

One book, Living, Loving & Learning by Leo Buscaglia, 4 crafting booklets, and a new 2008 calendar.

Three more books bring the total to 15 books at about 7 cents apiece.
The Human Sexes by Desmond Morris
My Life: The Early Years by Bill Clinton
Self Matters: Creating Your Life from the Inside Out by Dr. Phil McGraw

My total thrift finds cost just over $6. I'll try to return to the store tomorrow to look for another lamp shade -- and more books.

I hope you're having a nice day.

I have the Dr. Phil book... And although I'm not a Clinton fan, I think his book might be interesting.. I love biographies... Great finds!
