I have no pics of my thrifty purchases so instead I will show you what our cold and frozen lake looks like!! My DIL took this picture. She takes better ones than I and besides, I haven't been walking because the paths are still icy and I have no desire to take a tumble.
So I did go to the thrift store and found a nice pair of jeans, a top, 2 potato mashers , a pretty marmalade jar, a scarf and 4 magazines all for $4. Our very old potato masher fell apart and all we could find at the thrift store were plastic (?) ones. At .25 each we took them and will see how they do.
I noticed that there was a serious draft in the book/magazine area where I was browsing then I saw that a very large window was smashed to bits. When I went to pay I asked the woman behind the counter what had happened. She told me that a woman had accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake and jumped the curb, smashing into the window. Wouldn't that shock the daylights out of you if you were anywhere nearby!! It had happened quite recently. They hadn't had time to clean up the shards of glass.
I love to read your comments so please don't hesitate to leave one.
