ONE MANS JUNK....

After reading my sister in laws blog about heading to the thrift store for accessories, I figured I should give it a shot myself.  I have to admit, the thought of wearing or buying someone elses stuff kinda skeeves me out!  But I figured what the heck... time to step outside of my little box!

I figured I'd start by looking for a doily, seeing as how Natasha made a wonderful shirt out of them.   I ended up in the table cloth section where this bright pink color caught my eye!  I started laughing to myself when I realized that it was actually a Pashmina scarf... not a table cloth!  The best thing about it... the tags were still on it, so that means that nobody has probably wore the thing!  Score #1.  Secondly I checked out the jewelery section (very limited) but I did find this necklace out of shells, which I decided would make a great summer bracelt!  Just wrap the thing around 4 times, and voila!  I found a brooch while I was going to pay for all 2 of my finds and figured it fit in with the shell theme, so I bought it and attatched it to the outside of the bracelet!  I think they go together fairly well!  So in total I spent $3.50, for 3 items that I will most likely get a lot of use out of!  I think someone just created a monster, because I can't wait to go thrifting again!!
