Weekend finds, Yeah!


I've been waiting to do this for a while. I love to see what other people find on the weekend hunt! Now I have a blog and I can participate! I've been a collector for quite some time. I guess you could say I started as a teen with 80's toys. Although I really was taught to thrift. Lots of my clothing was second hand. I grew with my very frugal gramma! I've learned alot from her. As a young child I would tag sale with my mother on Saturday mornings and when my sister came along she began to come too. I really enjoyed even at such a young age. I loved finding clothing and toys of course. Its a great pastime memory I have with my mother! I remember children's clothes were usually 25cents a piece.

Today and for the past couple of years I love tag sales, estate sales, flea markets, rummage sales and thrift stores. I look for linens, especially vintage shabby chic items, books, clothing. Colors attract me pink, aqua ,yellow light blue.  I <3 Holly Hobbie, Pepsi and plants. I am a new Beatrix Potter collector. It turns out my mother had similar interests. So enough about me, I can't wait to post these new pics!


These awesome finds are from Saturday, my first sale. An estate sale from an adorable home. Looked like a small cottage. All of these items cost $10 with a blue vintage hat box and some free vintage wrapping paper!
