Its VERY rare when I walk into a thrift shop and out with something in my hands!
Im serious - its different in NY, there is usually NOTHING! And I look closely!
Saturday I took my handmades into the shop where I am on consigment and we decided to hit a few shops.
I ended up with a breadboard, a wooden tray, a little shelf and a recipe box all for $12.60 (pay no attention to my craft table)
We also hit an antique/junk shop and I picked up this great bowl for $17.90 (a little high I think) candle sticks and a magazine rack.
Then on Sunday Jas asked if I wanted to go to the flea market! I didnt find too much as it was too cold for the vendors to set up outside but I did find 2 sets of round paper mache boxes, large ones for $3 total! Now I get to paint everything:)
After the flea market we stopped at a camera shop so I could learn a little about these DSLR cameras I SO BADLY want! Ive got it narrowed down to a Canon Rebel XSi. Now I just have to shop around and see pricing because I also want to get a Macro lens for it:)
I can tell you one thing, if youre on the market for a DSLR and you like LIVE VIEW, make sure your new camera has this feature. NOT ALL DSLR cameras are equipped with this. If I had not researched yesterday and just went out to buy I would have had NO IDEA about that!!
I also finished up a few bunnies.
This first one is a Chestnut Junction pattern, I think she turned out so cute!
This is Beckys (TRP) free pattern shes offering this month. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this guy. His ears are bendable and hes actually pretty big:)
And this is another freebie pattern from Sweetpeas Primitives. He is supposed to be a makedo but I didnt have anything to use for a base so I just made him into a sitter.
We're in for some warmer temps this week. Im so happy about that! I cant wait to open some windows for fresh air!!
If you havent signed up for my giveaway PLEASE do. Ill be adding a few things:)
