Thrift Store Gifts



The beauty of thrift store shopping is one can find nice, collectible items to give as gifts, providing one knows what kinds of things the recipient likes.

For instance, one of my sisters had a June birthday.


She loves anything black wrought iron.


When I found a black wrought iron basket at a thrift store, I bought it.


Of course, I gave other gifties along with it and placed them inside the special basket.


She loved everything!

DO YOU LOOK FOR GIFT POSSIBILITES FOR OTHER PEOPLE WHEN YOU GO TO THRIFT STORES?

Haven't been in a thrift store in about fifteen years. Last time was when you came to visit me I think. I'm so glad your items were enjoyed by your sister.

Oh yes, My Mom volunteers at a thrift store, and she does too:))
We have a lot of laughs over "her favorite store"
Isn't it great? The thing is it helps a charity, the environment and our wallets. WIN. Win!!

You know I need to get back to a thrift store - haven't been there in ages. Yes I like to look at items and see if I can make them into something for someone else - but I know you have better ideas then I do!
