Happy New Week Everyone.
This week we're going shopping!
Like many of you, I enjoy treasure hunting at
thrift stores & charity shops.
particularly their New York City branch located on
Their thrift stores, located all over the world,
is but one of many fundraising arms
to help save lives.
There are many Salvation Army Thrift Store branches
around New York City, but I love this branch
because it's big, and that means,
there's a lot of stuff!
The second floor overflows with clothes, shoes & bags.
On the third floor, there are sporting gear...
... items for the house, records, books...
... and furniture -- great pieces for DIY projects!
They can also deliver your bulky purchases for a fee.
I always leave the shop with a little something --
a book, a cup & saucer, balls of yarn,
greeting cards. I know that even a 99 cent
sale can help in their programs.
On this shopping trip, I zeroed in on the glassware.
You see, I need a vase.
And I found one!
I examined it and hey, it's a Martha Stewart vase!
All it needed was some cleaning and at only $1.99,
I bought it immediately.
You'll have to stop by tomorrow
to find out what I did with it.
