Sorry...this might be the most boring post ever. I guess that's a good indication of how I'm feeling about the Portland thrift stores these days--I'm so bummed that I can't find anything anymore at Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. I'm sure it's Ebay--I know both companies have full time Ebay sellers on the staff now, so I'm sure lots is getting pulled for that. Really, yard sales are the best bet for finding goodies now, but our (short) yard sale season is just about over. Sigh. Anyway...somehow this week I found myself with an afternoon alone, and just a day shy of being released from my "bedrest", I thought I could handle an outing. To the thrift stores it was...and I did find a few treats:
I can't really explain this purchase. It's a set of "vintage" towels. Towels? Who buys used, old towels? What's wrong with me? BUT...Look at those COLORS! Amazing. AND, it's a SET for crying out loud. I mean, come on, help me out and tell me you'd do the same.
Other than that, I bought some vintage white pillowcases for embroidering, a few books, and some clothes for the kiddos. Man, the springtime rush of church rummage sales is looking like a LONG ways away right now!
