Something us menno's are also known for is thrifting! Something I'm extremely proud of. (I probably thrift more than I actually say meddachschlop..I had to google how to spell it).
Yesterday, before work, my mom and I took a trip to the local MCC store to do some thrifting of our own. If you haven't heard of MCC, take a look here. All the proceeds from the thrift stores go towards making peace near and far. On the site you can see a sample of the goodies at the thrift stores, organized into colours! I scrolled through it a few times. You should too.
I came back with quite a few goodies! Here are my favourites!
These fabrics reminded me of the lovely patterns Rachel has in her house over at Smile and Wave. MCC, friends! 40 cents a pillowcase!
I found this cute little apron for two dollars. I suppose I could have been craftier and made a pillowcase apron for about 80 cents, but it was so cute, I made the two dollar splurge! I don't cook much, so perhaps I'll just wear it as a skirt... (kidding. don't worry!).
I also came back with some 10 cent frames, lots of vases, and a few other little trinkets! MCC, you and I are best buds. Let's hang out again soon.
Any thrifting finds for you this weekend?
I have some lovely furniture re-do's coming up! Stay tuned!
