I have this friend who, for the past six years that I've known her, always has the best yard sale and thrift store finds. During the handful of times I'd go I'd walk in, see nothing I like, and walk about.
But, I'm slowly getting the hang of things and falling in LOVE with yard sales and thrift stores. The key is definitely to be consistent in going and not being afraid to dig. I'm definitely not a digger, but once you find a few things you love it encourages the digging to come out! :)
I, also, know exactly what I'm looking for and only go to 4-5 specific yard sales each week. If we see some that look good along the way we'll stop, but only if they have what we're looking for.
You can't really see the clothes that well in the picture, but I found TWO really cute vintage dresses. I've never found a cute dress before, so I was so excited when we randomly stopped at the Salvation Army (which is in the same shopping center as our new favorite frozen yogurt place) and I found two of them.
I got this "1930s Art Deco" dish set for FREE. I'm surprised how often people say, "you can just have that." So fun! And, don't you think it makes the best tea party set? I think we'll have lots of those in our future. Although, Eric served the boys their cereal in the bowls this morning.
