Thifty Weekend Finds

I spent a lovely Friday night with one of my favourite people  this past weekend, my beautiful mom. She crazily drove downtown on a Friday during rush hour to pick me up! Then we hit up Hero Burger to catch a bite to eat before we thrifted the rest of the evening away. The local Sally Anne was just ok, but the Goodwill had a 50% sign out front and we found most of our finds there.

Got a few good books for Christmas present for my son. The Frog and Toad’s are classics that are just hilarious to read. Buy one for 50 cents get one free!

Containers 1/2 price! Round glass was 0.99 cents and the white creamer $1.50.
I made a lovely arrangement for my mom-in-law in it for Christmas.

IMG_9039 Mom found this OLD school atlas. I’ve tried doing a search, but can’t really find much. I don’t know/think it’s very valuable, it’s in pretty rough shape. I bought it for the cool coloured maps inside. I might frame some for a special person for Christmas. $1.50 IMG_9040

And this is my favourite purchase of all! Sheet music. Eeee! I’ve seen a bunch of cool craft ideas and can’t wait to do something with them. Two books for $2.00! SaaWeet!
Anyone able to find info on an old atlas for me?

Frog and Toad were my favorite childhood books! In fact I still have two of them. I always look for them whenever I go out thrifting. Lucky you to have found one :)

I love the map and the kid's books. I'm a sucker for their beautiful illustrations!

I really enjoyed our thrifting too!
We make a great pair.
