Thrifty Finds – Today’s Treasures *8/2/8*

I took 7 big bags of “stuff” to the favorite thrift this morning to donate, and as usual, I left with two (much smaller) bags of goodies. I then visited my 2nd favorite thrift and found something that I’ve been looking for since forever – a Salt Pig! Woohoo! It doesn’t make up for the fact that last time I brought a donation bag to my favorite thrift, I included a vintage red Furla handbag that I mean to take to the consignment store. Oh well. I looked for it at the thrift today, and it was long gone. I just hope they got more than $50 for it .. because it was worth way more than that. Sigh.

I also did some retail therapy at Kohl’s (Christmas presents) if I can keep my hands off of them and not use them for myself (designer purses/bags!).

Here are some photos of the thrifty finds for all of my friends wondering if the junk in Northern Virginia is different from the junk in their home towns.

  1. Cool cookbook! I love German food.

    We get stuffed animals from the thrift shop for the dogs to play with and tear up. I dont feel as bad when they tear up a .79 stuffie as i do when they mangle one I paid $14.99 for.

    I’m not sure how I feel about cooking veal … so I may substitute turkey breast if any of the veal recipes are chosen. I’ll post the new poll on Tuesday morning … choice of 5 recipes from this book chosen randomly. (( I’m having wayyyy too much fun with this!! ))


  2. What is a salt pig? I may need one since I like to use kosher salt and keep it in a shallow small dish on the stove. It tends to get moisture in it and I end up replacing it to often.
