Thrifting till you drop!!!!!

I hope everyone had a great Saturday as I did for it was Thrifting Day all DAY!!!!!!
My Saturday's are usually spent trying to recoup from my work week. Especially this time of the year. At work this is one of the busiest time as we are preparing for the annual auction on May 6. As we  are a non-profit organization we depend on this event as our largest financial support for the coming year. We have an average of 300 people and over 250 items to auction off. As you can guess there is a lot of preparations with a great number of our society members involved.  Nancy one of volunteers informed me that on Saturday  that she would also  be helping with the Delta Kappa Gamma garage sale to support there Scholarship fund. Of course my curiosity got the best of me and I made plans to rise early and head into to town to be among the first in the door. My mom is usually by companion on these acursions, when I called early she was still in bed but of course she jumped (out of bed) and said she was would be ready by the time it took me to drive the 7 miles into town.
Here is a sneak preview of one of the items that we uncovered at our first stop.

The sale was being held in an old Grain mill. Yes we live in a small town and you never know where you might find a terrific sale. We also found boxes that had not even been unpacked, don't you just love the thrill of the hunt. After an hour, and telling several other shopper that we were also shoppers. This is some of the items we unearth.  Even the ladies who were helping with the sale were jealous of what we uncovered.
