The daughters are home for the holidays and yesterday, while most of the world was shopping for after Xmas deals at the mall, we went to thrift stores. Both girls found some great items to update their wardrobes (hmmm, can it be called "updating" if the things are old?) Sara also scored with this groovy metal canister set. She plans to store colored pencils, markers and other art supplies in them rather than flour, sugar, coffee and tea.
I am attracted to shiny objects, nostalgic knicknacks, detailed doodads, whimsical whatnots, things handmade or hokey. I am a sucker for under-appreciated, original art that somehow ended up at a garage sale or Goodwill.
I admit it, I have an irrepressible thrift store habit.
