I have a weakness, I must admit. I love thriftstores. We venture out to the thriftstores once a month or so. I am always amazed at what I find.
On Thanksgiving weekend, I found a few nice pyrex bowls and a gravy boat. I don't have any fancy serving dishes and I want to eventually get away from using plastic bowls. Secondhand is the way to go. I don't have the money to buy new and I love vintage pyrex. If you can get it in a thriftstore, you are lucky. People sell the stuff on ebay, craigslist and etsy for lots o' cash.
This past weekend, I found a few sleepers for the baby. He is growing so fast and I don't have a lot of thicker sleepers in his size. We never needed them for long in Germany. At $1.99 a piece, I think I got a great deal. The one on the right is from H&M. We bought a lot of clothes from H&M when we lived in Germany. Most of the outfits from H&M have survived four children already. So you can imagine my joy to find such a treasure.
I am dying to share our thrifty Christmas ideas. I can't or I will spill the beans on who gets what for Christmas. What I can say, is that we are doing a homemade and thrifted Christmas. We are avoiding buying anything new, unless it is to make something.
Happy thrifting my friends,
