My sister Bridie and I went thrifting in Milwaukee– a post I wrote way back in the day about my favorite Miwaukee thrift haunts is here— this weekend. We stopped at at least five stores and still managed to fit in a super-indulgent Mexican lunch that left us both needing naps. We only ended up making purchases at one. Well, two if you count a glass I broke at Clinton St Antiques that Bridie was going to buy before I sent it smashing to the ground. Oops.
I L-O-V-E spending time with my sister. Did you catch that article that said people who have sisters are generally more happy in life? After a day spent laughing, bickering and talking plainly with Brides it’s not hard to see why. It’s so damn easy to be me around her.
Bridie and I have always been thrifters, gals out looking for a deal. With a dad who buys all of his clothing at Value Village, this should be a given. We found quite a few things for ourselves and for those on our Christmas list… Maybe one of these is for you?
We begin with plates. I am so predictable!
This deal of the day will probably live at my house. Twenty-five cents.
I have a dozen of these in orange and white. A certain someone has always admired them and I figure it’s high time they got their own! Hoping to find more before my shopping time runs out.
I’m not sure if these are placemats or napkins but I loved the pattern and texture. Surely they’ll make a great gift.
How about you all? Any thrifting scores this weekend?
