2nd Time Around: Shopping in Unexpected Places

 

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

One of my favorite things to do when I am traveling to visit my student teachers is to stop in all the little thrift stores and resell shops along the route. I have two student teachers this semester that are in the Reform, Ala. area, and I have had a wonderful time discovering these tiny hidden places! There are actually five places along the route from my home in Meridian that sell the kind of treasures I look for. Most of them look pretty junky when you first walk in, but I’ve gotten good at scouting the area pretty quickly and gathering up the things I’m interested in.

Recently I found this mirror at one of the shops. When I asked the price I was expecting a larger amount than $3, but that is what she sold it to me for! I bought lots of costume jewelry from her too for a total of around $7.00. I was tempted to keep this one for my porch. But, I put this in one of my booths, and it sold within a matter of days.

I will be headed back up to Reform next week, and am hoping to find more treasures! I love finding things for my booths and sometimes for myself  in unexpected places!

I've been waiting for this all morning! I got a little crazy hitting "refresh" over and over. What can I say? I've been up since 2 am....
