Happy New Year! It's been cold and gray in middle Tennessee. Our snow is measured in dustings and tenths, but it has been dreary. Aunt Sister and I try to stay busy with new listings and weekly trips to our latest fav thrifting spot: "the digger". It seems we keep breaking our record each time we go, spending longer digging through the bins and piling our cart higher with treasures. We try not to leave now till we get 50 pounds or more so that our price per pound,"drops" to the lowest, best price available at the digger.
Our purchases are all over the place from Christmas to Easter to Halloween decorations, books, suitcases and other bags, board and card games, wall art, chalkboards, crutches, dog and kid toys, baby items, stitchery kits, even pool cue chalk. We never know what we'll find and well, that's a good part of the fun! Aunt Sister feels satisfied that we've taken full advantage of a bin when we dig to the bottom of the bin and that's often where we find the best treasures!
