What I DIDN'T BUY at the THRIFT STORE!

Good Morning!! Yesterday I hit a couple thrift stores and decided to take my camera along with me to show you all the lovelys that I DIDN'T BUY! Usually I am showing you all my loot from a weekend of yard saling and flea marketing but since we had the big anniversary weekend at the shop I couldn't head out . A HUGE thanks to all who came out by the way....I appreciate each and everyone of you!

Okay peeps...are you ready for this? I know you'll be SHOCKED at some of these items I left sittin on the shelf...........maybe.

I actually thought about getting these lamps (the pair) but they were too retro comtemporary modern for any of my booths. The little lovely to the left is stunning though....

a sea of clubs.....

Wanted it...didn't work..totally busted on the back...bummer!




I wish I had thought of these darn crock thingies....they are ALWAYS there...



See what I mean...ALWAYS! And always minus the cork lid!





Oh I bet I could......maybe.....no I think so....yep, I'd give it a try....





Don't you love this...must be a tad on the heavy side huh?? Bunch o wimps.....








I thought the price was a bit steep ...I mean these things are like a dime a dozen! Knock off a hundred bucks and they might actually sell it!





This one was a toughie but alas I passed on the strapless leather dress with the very flattering ruffle right on the waist...........











Now these were cute! I mean it, little old vintage jammies with navy weathervanes all over the place. I ALMOST bought um..










TOTALLY passed on this one.........













Oh...lookie here....this was a surprise! NOT! Remember my post on this? They are ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS at EVERY SINGLE THIFT STORE I GO TO.....ALWAYS! Right along with ..........











THIS ONE!!! ALWAYS ALWAYS!! Seriously, go to any TS today and I promise you they will be there! (p.s. I read um both...tee hee...who didn't right?)













"Darling, I must have you now, don't go! I cannot find my shirt! My desire is so strong I cannot wait any longer.......!" ( I left them two alone and kept movin...lol!)













Seriously?















Nordic Track graveyard...


















I know someone is thinking, what's wrong with those lamps?

















These were at every single craft show I ever did...and sold like crazy. Wish I had thought of this too.
















And for the GRAND FINALE....TA DA!!! The title of the print? A Star is Born! Good Grief!




SO I could have done this all day! It was fun taking pics of all the weird and wild stuff that lurks inside the TS jungle! I am linking this to Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm!
I do have some finds that I got at ShopKeeper Sunday the other day that I will post later on. Til then enjoy these beauties! Have a great day!

Oh that was so funny! It surprises me sometimes what GW will accept, there's always stuff with missing parts.

I used to have that Oprah cookbook but somewhere along the way I lost it! It had a wonderful recipe for a grilled veggie sandwich:)

This is such a great post, and yes those prices are CRAZY! I just was cleaning out my house this weekend and I have bags full of stuff to donate, I hate to drop it off in one of these stores. When did thrift shops become more expensive than Target?? How are they geared toward everything collectible instead of helping those who can't afford to by new. Thrifting has changed so much, I stay out of the big chain thrift shops and love the church shops.
