Thrifty Goodness

 The only thing I like better than walking the beach for shells, shark's teeth, & whatever else happens to wash up is going to thrift stores. I like the consignment shops & discount stores but give me a little junky storefront crammed full of who-knows-what to dig through and I'm a happy camper.


I like shelling especially when my head is in bad space. There is just something about focusing on the treasure hunt that makes me forget I just had a stressful day. Well, if I can't make it to the beach my thrift store route is the next best thing.And look what I found today sitting up on a top shelf. Isn't this napkin holder a beauty?

Someone took the time to make sure all the coquinas were the same size and all lined up. I can tell they chose the best of all there little mini's for the accents in the center. All that work to hold paper napkins.

For me there are no good days and bad days....just good finds and gooder finds.

  2. Good eye for the napkin holder!
    You travel the same thrift store route as I... didn't know about the Davis Thrift Store stop....was the Elephant's Trunk store on that map? I don't remember seeing it.
