A trek to a favorite supermarket-sized thrift store, Savers, as well as finding bargain priced treasures, turned out to be yesterday's highlights.
It's an hour away but worth the drive. Sometimes a friend accompanies me but yesterday was a solo excursion.
It's thrilling to share the newfound treasures with readers by joining Linda's Junkin Friday and Cindy's Show and Tell Friday!

Roses, of course, make my heart flutter and pink roses to boot! The back of the pillow is a soft pastel velvet. The price? $2.99. Incredible!
A friend of mine is of Ukranian heritage. Now it's almost impossible to find anything from that country so imagine my delight upon finding this vase, made in the Ukraine. It got snatched up immediately for a mere $1.99. My girlfriend will love it!
The color scheme of our remodeled kitchen is blue and yellow with white cabinets so when I saw a trivet in those colors, it had to be scooped up. The tile is from Mexico and has a rather zany design to it. I love it. Cost? $1.99! Woo hoo. Isn't it cool?
Also found a very sweet little odd-shaped vase in a delicate lavender shade. I could picture a few wild violets in it or some tiny white spring flowers. It was a little pricey at $3.99 but because it called to me, I bought it.
DO YOU GO THRIFT STORE SHOPPING? IF YES, WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR?
