Thrift Store Finds....

This weekend was the Grand Opening of Missions Thrift Store.  It will be open open two Saturdays per month at my church and the proceeds go to missions trips.  Olivia's twin from another mother and his mother invited us to come along with them for some shopping fun and here are my finds:

The Olivia-sized adirondack chair and table up top were a cute find for $20.

This Caterpillar Rocking Toy apparently retails new for $90 but I rescued him for a cool $7.50!  He's seen better days but I think once I take a vaccum to him and spot clean, he'll be good as used!  LOL!  Of course one of his antennaes is coming unsewn and he's missing foot rests and some little toy that goes in his back pocket but hey, who needs all that stuff??

And, a bread box for $5.  Wow, Shannon, that's a really BIG bread box!  Why yes it is but it won't be for long because I've got plans for this baby that do not involve bread!!  Stay tuned.....

Also, I finally finished something I've been wanting to get to for a while - a hairbow holder for the little girl.  She is finally getting some length on her hair so I wanted the bows to be out so I'll remember to use them.  I  bought the O plain and painted it green to match her room  and bought the jungle animals ribbon, which did not photograph well ,  to go with.  (Note:  I have since moved this to her room and it is against yellow paint there and I think it looks better - I'll have to take another pic soon!)


  1. I LOOOOOVE that caterpillar. I love it all really, excellent finds.

  2. Hi! I'm stopping by! Thanks for visiting my blog! I like the caterpillar too and love the bow holder!

  3. Hi Shannon! I almost bought that bread box to use not for bread-- too funny! I can't wait to see what you do with it. I love the chair and table for Olivia. Great finds!
