So after moving (again), and gearing up for Mike’s deployment I’m finally back to thrifting. A recent trip to St. Louis led to me to some awesome half price rummage sales, and some amazing finds.
Major scores from this trip included:
Our friend the Atom -Book
I bought this book for its gorgeous science illustrations, but it’s apparently a propaganda book for Nuclear Energy put out by Walt Disney. It’s going for about 40 dollars Amazon. Too bad I’m not selling it, because for a dollar it was a total steal.
Blue train case
I’m in love with train cases, but I hardly ever find them so I was super stoked when the rummage sale worker said I could have this FOR FREE!
Since we’ve moved I’ve been on the hunt for a cheap sturdy desk to go in my new craft room, for only $25 dollars I had to have this. Since the desk is real wood I’m planning on refurbishing it; I’m thinking maybe black.
|Star Trek Fanny Pack||$.25|
|Nautilus Shell print||$.25|
|Escada Tote Bag||$.75|
|Train Case||$ FREE||Our friend the Atom Book||$1.00||Desk||$25.00|
Total cost $29.74
