Friday's Thrift Store Finds


I got the itch to go out for a bit this afternoon after it finally stopped drizzling and decided to head over to a couple of thrift stores just a few minutes away. I didn't find anything really, really great but I found a handful of things that were too good to pass up!

Let's see, a hardcover book about the FBI's only female profiler for .99, right up my alley! I've been reading several books along this line again, revisiting my past infatuation with serial killers, how they think, and how they are profiled. A handmade memo board that I plan to resell someday, it was only 1.99 and I love the fabric! I also scored a Banner House purse from the 1980s complete with the required band of ribbon across the front. This was my era, my preppy phase and I knew it had to be vintage when I saw it! Bargain at .69 and Tim checked Ebay for me to see if it might be worth selling someday too! Last stop at a little thrift store near our house and I found two leis full of blue blossoms for .35 cents each and I plan to pull them all off the string holding them together and use for scrapbooking! I also got a brand new roll of expensive knitting ribbon for 1.50 and a little bag with vintage trim and some flowers for 10 cents! Gotta love a bargain!

Get OUT of here! In a past life I wanted to go to the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in NYC to be a forensic psychologist, but the problem was it was in NYC!!!! I just finished the best book-Manhunt. It's a must read...I'll loan it to you! It was nearly impossible to put down!
