My lunch hour finds!

It was pretty out today, so I thought I'd hit a few yard sale during my lunch hour.  Here's what I found:

Vintage flat top leather suitcase  $1.00
Four vintage Christmas cookie tins  .25 cents each
Sock monkey kit (still in package)  $1.50
Two decks old playing cards  $1.50
Four Spode Christmas cup/saucer sets  $2.00 per set    (I couldn't pay and get out out of there fast enough!)

Not bad for 45 minutes.  I hit five yard sales and I had 15 minutes left on my lunch hour!

I junk for lunch

Today I decided to leave work during my lunch hour and hit the Salvation Army Store nearby. I was thrilled when I found a jewelry chest just like this one for $59.99. It is in outstanding condition. When it was being loaded into my Jeep, I noticed it still had the JCPenneys price tag on it for $399.99. I've been wanting one like this for a long time, but they were a little too pricey for me. I am just thrilled to pieces!!!

There could be worse addictions!

Okay, now I know I am addicted to junking!  I went on a three day business trip in Shepherdstown, WV and noticed that they had a thrift store as we were driving through the town on the way to the hotel.  After finishing working on Friday, a co-worker and I decided to check it out.  I purchased four items:

1 pair of long kidskin gloves
1 pair of long kidskin gloves with cutout design
1 vintage brooch with flowers and jewels
1 Home Interiors angel ornament (It was an old one)

I probably could have bought more, but I had very limited space in my suitcase and I was carrying on, rather than checking a bag.
