This morning I delivered something dear to me for something special that I want to tell you about in the very near future. (Don't worry; you really won't have to wait that long.) While in town, I made a few stops.
After leaving there, I stopped at the thrift store where I bought Gertrude. I wanted the shop owner to know that the sewing machine was wonderful. And you know what? When I walked in, one of her young daughters asked, "Did the sewing machine work for you?" Impressive. We (the owner, the daughter, and I) chatted for a bit and then I was offered some of her yummy Amish Cinnamon Bread. It was delicious and no there isn't a picture.
And last but not least, my friend M has also been thrift shopping and then just plain generous. When she heard about the thrifted wok, she thought I must have these pieces. Can you imagine a new bamboo steamer for under $2? M also gave me her other styrofoam head. She's got a lumpy noggin but everyone's different, right? Now what shall she be called? Humm...
The key to thrifting = continue to assess what you have and get rid of the excess so your house doesn't look like a thrift store.
