    I have always been creative when it comes to restyling my thrift shop finds. Something in me is compelled to change the item once it is in my possession. From clothes, accessories and furniture. I must put my stamp on it. Lately I have been redesigning some of my old pieces as well as my...

    I did great! Found some things I was looking for and some I didn't know I was looking for. :P I got a two-gallon jar I've wanted for $2. I have two already, one for AP flour and one for bread flour. Now I finally have one for wheat flour. All three are different, which I like, so I'll know...

    I took an afghan that I had crocheted to work to show to someone. Another lady saw it and said "Those colors would look great in my house. Do you ever make and sell them?" To be perfectly honest, I don't really need the one I made. (I only made it so I wouldn't feel so useless and guilty while...

    Has anyone done these? What's involved? How can you tell what to sell and at what price? Any ideas for having a successful sale? A friend and I are thinking about doing a craft sale this November. We're wondering what to expect. A 6' table costs $50 for this sale. We're splitting the cost...

    I checked the fliers so that I could do groceries this weekend and there was not one single item that was a good enough sale that it could tempt me to go shopping. Looks like this week will be one for using the stockpile instead of adding to it!
