Nothing For Sale Today but I gave and I did recieve

Even if what  you give to charity is what you think is junk you may be given back to in return .But then its most like the luck of the draw  as what I found today  had just come in and hadnt been priced So I left my number and they called back not long after and Bargains!!
  Gorgeous writing what not cupboard thingy -just needs a repair on lock has the cutest little key  still with it $20 (I am bad) Hubby said when he saw what I brought home "You cant help yourself can you?" I said "nope" lol

isnt it sweet?

 Have to fix lock to make stay closed.
and my cute little dresser for $15 which will be done up for next house.
 and musnt forget this realy  large bag which I am sure is leather has all the keys is it for records? I love it

There was also an old port in their back room they said they werent alowed to open it and had to wait for the pricing people I said I will have the whole thing if it was full of vintage clothes sadly it was full of tools which I didnt get to see.One day I will get a box of vintage I will.


and then ....

 even tho I wasnt even going to go  to even one oppy today other than to drop stuff off I was so pumped with the above scores that I went into visit  my fav boss ladies one and she brought out 3 vintage hats just for moi.

Ok so they dont fit my fat head but they will go great with all my other ones wont they?
