Lunchtime Thrifting

It's been a while since I've bought anything at Value Village. I was starting to get depressed.

I zipped in today at lunch and had myself quite a successful little shop.

I bought this quilt, it's nothing special really. It's lap-size and I plan on throwing it on the couch to snuggle up in when watching TV. I'm getting picky now when I'm buying buttons (believe it or not). At a quick glance I knew there were some nice buttons in this especially huge bag. Bought that too.

I found a couple of pillowcases and a couple of magazines.

I found some Christmas fabric samples. Sold (to me).

And lastly, I grabbed this little piggy bank on the way out because it said "Lego, Japan" on the bottom. A little eBay surfing confirmed that it was indeed made by the Lego people in Japan in the 50's. It seems to be worth about 10 dollars. I paid $1.49. I like it.

All that for just under 20 dollars. Not bad.

Have a great weekend! And to all my Canadian friends, have a great LONG weekend!

I'd say that was great for $20!! Those look like some fun magazines. Any good projects in there?

Thats an awesome twenty dollar haul. I like that piggy bank too. Isn't it great to slip out and thrift at lunch? Lucky for me I've got a huge one across the street from work.
