the joy of thrifting~

Oh, how I LOVE thrift stores.... I'm not a big shopper generally, but there's something about finding something wonderful for a great deal that I find rather thrilling.  There are certainly worse ways to get some thrills, right?  Besides, I try to abide by the "one in, one out" rule, never acquiring more items than what I give away, and I think I do a pretty good job of sticking to it~  We have our share of Goodwills around and I've found some great things there, but lately I've been going to our local Kiwanis thrift store and I'm liking it.  For your viewing pleasure, some of my latest finds....

glass snowman candy jar, $.50
very cool pterodactyl puppet for my friend's 3 year old son (so tempted to keep it for Claire, but I'm thinking he'll appreciate it more), $1.00

wooden number puzzle for Claire (I realize it'll be a while before she has any concept of numbers, but for $2.00?  I'll take it!)

set of 15 animal rubber stamps for yes, only $.25! (as in one single quarter my friends)  Again, she won't be using these for a while, but 15 for the price of less than one in the store?  A no brainer, I'd say!
