Tausha of Sassy Style Redesign and I met up by email and got to chatting. We realized we were relatively close in distance and of course had much in common. We decided to meet up and go she took me thrifting to some of regular places.
(here we are in the middle of the store. Gotta love those camera held at arms lengths shots right?)
We talked about our similar and different approaches to thrifting and which sections we liked to "hit" first. It was really fun to bounce ideas off each other of what items could be upcycled or transformed into.
Plus it's always great to have another pair of eyes searching for the must have item we are looking for! One thing I did learn is that Tausha has connections at each of her stores. I gotta get me some of those :)
Take a peek at our carts from the first shop:
(note: Mine is on the left and about level with the cart. Tausha's is on the right and definitely a HAZARD to customers passing by! ha ha ha She found what she was looking for!)
One of the pieces I bought that day was this darling little cage ($1.00 or less)
Not something I would normally pick up but my daughter has been saying she would love a cage hanging in her room with some "fake" birds in it to play with. So for the price and charm of it, I snatched it up!
A little spray paint, some shredded and crinkled book pages hot glued in the bottom and a couple of colorful birds from the $1.00 store.....
and I have 1 happy daughter and 2 new family "pets".
Did you thrift anything fun over the weekend? or what projects did you get done?
