Thrift Share Monday

I hope everyone had a restful weekend before Thanksgiving and Black Friday!

Did anyone go thrifting? I scored a few things for yself and for my Etsy store.

I went to a local thrift shop this weekend and found 10 vintage holiday napkins for only $2.98 They are perfect for my Christmas Eve dinner table! I even found a craft online to make napkin rings from jingle bells! And three really pretty vintage Readers Digest books and a vintage cross stitch NOEL for my Etsy shop.

And a local Antique shop had a holiday open house where I bought a vintage rolling pin with red handles. The owner had it tied with a really cute Christmas plaid ribbon, so it will look perfect on my kitchen counter for the holidays! I also found a red vintage metal tin with white Santas on it. I plan to put an evergreen plant in it.

I was only able to take a few photos before my battery died on my camera, so I pulled a few photos from other sites too.


  1. Hi, I'm visiting by way of Thrift Share Monday. It sounds like you found some great stuff. I love those Readers Digest books for taking on a trip. I can usually find them for a $1; and if you don't like the first story, there are plenty more to choose from.

  2. Since I was not feeling great we didn't even think about getting up early for shopping Friday. Honestly, if it was not that I heard GW was getting in on Friday deals this year I would have stayed home. I was curious. So around 10:30 we headed out to a lumberyard to look for a shop vac (they only had 4 to begin with) but did buy ducttape there. The tvs GW advertised were flatscreen- and only 6" and 10" size! Not what I was looking for, but I did bring home someone else's old DVD player. Its made for the car but I can strap it to my treadmill! The small screen is fine for that!
    Usually I would hit JoAnnes on BF but this time I quit and went home.
