Thrift Store Thursday 06/18

Did I mention that including the nephew and the babysittee, I have five children this week?  I don’t know how anybody does it! 

Regardless, I managed to slip in a quick trip to Goodwill this evening after Craig got home and took them all (the four who sleep here) to the pool.

IMG_2857 I haven’t had the best luck at GW lately, so I was pleasantly surprised tonight.  I got a virtually brand new pair of Nikes for Firstborn $2, Gap khaki pants for Pinkerbelle $2, and swim trunks for one of the boys, also $2.  I also got five chandelier shades for $1 each.

Last week at United Volunteers, I got this little stepladder for $3.  It’s in very good shape, and I think it has a charming sort of nostalgia to it.IMG_2856It’s also useful in the kitchen, since I am vertically challenged.

Okay, time for you to show and tell!

That is a cute little ladder. It reminds me of one that we had when I was younger.

Great finds at GW too!

I am so jealous! I just spent $3 each on 5 shades at IKEA on Sunday b/c I was sure I wouldn't be able to find them at Goodwill or SA. Just goes to show you, huh? :) 5 kids???!!!

Every time I pass a garage sale I think of you and wonder what treasure you would find if you were there! so funny...

The stepladder is really cute. My kids would like to have that in our kitchen to reach the candy jar!

Have a great weekend!
