    Sadly, no more local thrift store for me, and no garage sales till at least May, most likely.

    I keep running across stuff I got at our local thrift. I shouldn't complain it's gone and instead be grateful for all the great stuff we got there during the 5 years they were open, but we're going to miss this resource. Luckily we are very well stocked, so we don't need much anyway. We're more at the age of letting go than acquiring.

    I got about 35 pounds of quilting fabric, including 5 Moda jelly rolls, for about $40. The Moda were $2.75 each, I have them listed on Ebay and all have bids of about $20 each. Most of it will be for resale.

    Love Love thrift stores.
    I went to one in Holmes County, OH~We go down every year a couple friends and shop the flea markets and thrift stores.
    I found a j.Percy fur coast for $15. Looked online when I got home...and the same coat was advertised as a "vintage" J. Percy for $150.00
    Also got an inside out knee length coat for $9.~
    I always find something at this store. I also found these really cool Deer plates, that I ended up getting for my oldest son for $2 each.~a STEAL!

    We recently found 8 Correlle salad plates at a thrift store, matching the cornflower pattern of the bowls we use all the time. They were priced at .39 each and I could not grab them fast enough, since Correlle has become HTF at thrifts and expensive. But when I took them to the till to pay, I found out they were half off that day!

    Our only thrift store recently closed, but we sometimes get to other towns for shopping, and I keep a list on my phone of items I hope to find. One thing I will be looking for this year are ornate wedding gowns, and also one or more pink gowns to make over into angel gowns.

    I'm really hoping to find some good makeover stuff at garage sales this year, too. Can't wait for sales to start this year.

    Last week I took my dgs #3 into the thrift store. We found another large snake stuffed animal his older brother has been wanting for $1.99! The first stuffed snake, Monster Man, was purchased by his father when we were at Jellystone Maryland for $14.99, yikes. However, I consider Monster Man a good purchase because dgs #2 loves him. So I said to dgs #2, now you have Monster Man #2! Dgs #2 says, no mom mom it’s Monster Man and Monster Man 🙄.

    Sadly, no secondhand shopping for me since early January. Not only did our only thrift store close then, but I haven't left our property since then either. But, weather permitting, I will be hitting a few thrifts in Duluth next week. I have a whole list of stuff I'm hoping to find.

    It will probably be about two months before garage sales start up here.
