Gift Thrift

Day 6
The thrift store is a great place to get rid of things you don't need anymore and it's also a great place to find great deals on things you do need. At one of our local thrift stores, you can always find multiple shelves of glass items for super cheap. Candle holders, vases, wine glasses, bowls, etc. are plentiful. There are also many, many baskets and other items that could be freshened up with a quick spray painting and look like a million bucks. Take for example an ugly picture in a nice looking but tacky colored frame. Spray paint and something new inside can transform it.
At our local store there are also loads of books. Children's books were 3 for $1. I bought a large stack of books, some in brand new condition just the other day. One was a big hardcover Disney Peter Pan book, still just 33 cents!
