CHICO'S hand bag / purse This handbad/purse I bought from a thrift store fairly new I have used it a few time I'm just trying to clear out some purses. Does not have any scratches or stains is in very good condition. However it does have one tiny scuff at the very top of the bag not anything major just something worth mentioning. It is a very well made bag I used it for my church books. Chico's Bags Totes

Sew Mama Sew featured the Pinpoint Oxford Eiderdown Coverlet from the Spring Section of my book. This project makes a gorgeous, fluffy (poofy) eiderdown-type throw that is tied instead of quilted, very easy for new quilters (and did I mention its made from thrifted men's shirts?)

Kids, don't try this without an adult! :)  Grab your soldering iron and some styrofoam shapes, then make your own abstract "mod" Christmas decorations!  WOW!  No mention of fumes--I'd recommend you do this in a very well-ventilated room!  I found a 1971 Farm Journal Christmas Book at the Assistance League Thrift Store in  Conroe, Texas.  The book is chock-full of recipes and ideas.

There was no traveling for work this week, so my son and I jumped into the car and headed to Anderson, SC for a little thrift store treasure hunting. On the way, we decided to recorin d our conversation talking about our plans for the summer. One of the activities we mention is GEOCACHING. Geocaching is a family friendly treasure hunt using GPS technology and can be done around most towns or in rugged terrain. To find out all about this fantastic hobby, visit the official website at…

Laminated book pages as place mats! My kids are too old for storybook ones, but I am determined to find cool book pages to do this with. ((damaged and such from the thrift; no living books will be harmed in the making of this project))

Inside, in the kitchen, I have a small “bar” area with various waters, teas and glasses.  The tea cups are white porcelain, from the thrift store.  I’ve gotten tired of drinking coffee from a bowl, not to mention it’s a horrible way to drink tea.  Love my tea cups!

I found this rocket ship at the thrift store! SCORE! I am putting books and a critter to go along with the books.  They are our reading buddies.  The kids love them.  They can go to library during centers and read to them.

Spring always makes us want to clean out our closets, garages, or storage spaces.    Then all the yard sales start – not to mention the return of the Arlington Flea Market – and we can’t help but pick up new treasures to replace the things we just got rid of…    So whether you’re selling your stuff, committed to bargain hunting, working through your fear of getting rid of stuff, or trying to organize the stuff you already have, we’ve got books to help.

Lara Spencer gives her tips and tricks for shopping at flea markets, thrift shops and auctions in her book, "I Brake for Yard Sales". I soooooo need this! I totally brake for yard sales.
