Got a little sidetracked there. Back to the title of this post. I have been getting a little "clearing out" done. As I get a few boxes together, I make a trip to the thrift store to donate the things I don't want to move. The problem is that I can't make a trip to the thrift store without actually shopping. No way can I just drop a few boxes off, get my receipt and drive away. So.....I go inside. I'll only be a few minutes. I probably won't buy anything. I just want to look.
I am buying things that I will have to pack and move, but I just can't help it. In my defense, I traded out the needlework piece for something else. I put the other piece in a box to donate. Which means I will have to make another trip to the thrift store. It's a vicious cycle!
I've had this for awhile, but I don't think I have blogged about it. When we decided to do the sports room for the boys I thought it would be fun to have some old pennants. I started looking each time I went shopping. My heart starting racing as I saw one peeking out from a pile. I could tell it was old, not a replica. Yeah! I pulled it out was quite surprised when I read it. Maybe not quite what we were looking for. Poultry judging is not exactly a sport. For $1 I brought it home anyway. Goes great with my chicken-themed kitchen!
Gotta run for now. I'll keep you updated on the cleaning (and the thrifting).
