Summer thrifting

One of my favorite things to do is take the boys thrifting and "bopping around" as Scout calls it.  We visit St. Vincent de Paul, Thrift town, Thrift Land, Goodwill, and sometimes the shops on Burnet Rd.  Though Gray likes to say they have a lot of  "old lady stuff". (:
   This week we scored these items:
4 VHS movies, a scary novel (for Dylan), a nice sized canning jar, a coffee mug for Bubbie, a terra cotta pot, and an ecru lace-edged table cloth.  Total spent: $6.47. 
 
Not a huge haul for two hours of shopping, but it was fun, and we discovered another cute little restaurant to eat lunch at - Tacquerias Arandas.   Al Carbon tostadas, and beef quesadillas......so delish.  No soda, boys.  I'm weaning you off Dr. Pepper.
They've gotten used to me taking photos everywhere we go...they can get used to iced water, too!

That's right...teach those boys to thrift :) It really is a learning experience though because you see so many things that just aren't around anymore.

I have really become addicted to Thrift Stores!! You found some great things and I think it is great that you are teaching your boys to reuse!!

Thrift stores are my favorite! I find so many fabulous things :)
My favorite place to look for books...a weakness.

Great finds. I love that the VHS movies are super cheap these days. I am always on the look out for a family member who refuses to go to DVD's....

:) I am weening my son and me off of the Dr. Pepper. Oh, the agony, but why spend $2.50 for a refillable soda when they can have water for free? That's my thinking.

Thanks for sharing.

Great finds. I love the vintage tablecloth. It's great that your boys enjoy thrifting. It can be yet another way to spend quality time with them!

Nice items you found! The boys are cute! You have a busy job keeping all of them where they need to go in clean clothes alone!!!

You found some nifty things, Gina. I love the tablecloth. Table linens are one of my weaknesses.
