Last week, Young House Love issued the thrift shop challenge. We decided to accept that challenge. First, familiarize yourself:
Challenge no. 2 – spend the $20 and take a photograph of the goods you come home with.
Here are the items we considered:
Sorry for the blurry picture, but I just had to include it. In case you can’t tell, the upholstery has a water wheel and stream scene printed on it. This was a three piece set. It was pretty tempting but we left it for someone else that could give it a good home. So what did we get?
The napkin rings and the Dora thermos (those suckers are expensive and this one was brand new, with tags, for $1.99)! I really did want that marble horse, but I just couldn’t think of a place for it so I left that, too. I actually only spent $5.03 total of my $20.00. I kept saying everything in there was “expensive”, ha ha.
Challenge no. 3 – Find one item referenced in the song and snap a picture of it.
I found the sweetest, cutest velcro shoes I could find.
I didn’t buy those either (but I kind of wanted to).
Thanks Young House Love for issuing the Thrift Store Challenge! It was a lot of fun!
