I love that lamp! I love thrifting. My youngest daughter works part-time for a designer boutique. The thing that is a riot people come in and want to know where she purchased some of the really darling sweaters I've found in Goodwill ha ha. When my son left home I loaded him up on all kinds of really neat things I found here and there. He lives in a very old shabby chic apt. built in the early 1900's. When I went there after he moved in I said how much I loved the place it felt so homey. He said "Yeah yours!" Ha ha Great finds.
Best,
Kathy

What a bummer to lose that treasure but sounds like you had a great score with the clothes :)

I plan to go thrifting on Saturday. I have my list ready as I know just what I am looking for, and I am anticipating my trip and very excited. I have three places I plan to visit, and hoping I walk away with a big smile.... I love your lamp, it is quite lovely. Enjoy.

Smiles...

That is so cool! We must make a date to get there one of these days. I was planning to take your class at Tinsel Trading this weekend, but my cousin is coming to visit with her new baby...afraid new babyness cancels out tinsel fun!

See, it really does pay to be nice to people. Isn't it lovely that she put that aside for you.

Three stories! Sounds like heaven!

To be recognized by thrift store workers, ahhh... true sign of a life well lived, in my humble opinion!

Very cool story about the lamp! Love that skirt! My daughter is a regular now at the thrift store by her apartment, which is so funny, as years ago (a young teen) she wouldn't even get out of the car when I stopped at the thrift stores! Now she calls to tell me the great finds she finds! Don't you just love having daughters??

I love that they know you so well, and kept the lamp for you!
I'm trying to avoid the thrift stores, but you've tempted me to go treasure hunting again. Wish we could go together!

Hi Charlotte, I would of thought I had died and gone to heaven if I saw a 3 story Salvation Army. I stumbled into your blog from who knows where. I have been reading most of the afternoon. Loved reading your blog. Come visit me sometime. Have a great weekend. ~ Lynn

How totally great, there is nothing that makes my heart beat faster than a good thrift store. (the ones around here are no longer "good"!)

How happy your lamp must be to finally be home with you!

Wow! What a nice thing for that cashier to do! I haven't checked out the Salvation Army here yet. I will have to do that soon.
I enjoyed visiting your blog!
God bless.

LOVE this "happily ever after" ending to your thrifting adventure! Oh how I wish I could go shopping with you cute girls! The lamp is WONDERFUL - thank goodness it patiently waited for you! And a three-story SA? Be still my heart!
xo,

Hello~ I am new to your blog and happily discovered you via Kim's Daisy Cottage blog. The game board that you gave to her is just wonderful! How sweet of you!!

Your thrifing treasures are wonderful. I am always intrigued when reading about things that others have gathered at thrift stores. I love to thrift, too. Someday I am going to go on a thrifting road trip!!!! Sounds like fun, huh?

Have a lovely day!!
