First stop- lots of stuff cheap!!! The only thing I had to have was this strawberry jar:
* 50 cents
Next couple of stops nothing. I really like old vintage things. My last stop and this is what I got:
* $1 for the milk container ( I will put flowers in it and place it in my garden) * 50 cents for the rusty shovel that will go on my porch this winter with greens on it!
Tomorrow is half price day at goodwill. Wish me lucky on some thrifty finds!

First is Kim H. Kim is a good friend of mine from my stamping world. She is a crazy brilliant designer. HERE is a link to her blog where you can read tons about her and what she does. One thing she does is hit thrift stores and garage sales. She gets all these wonderful odds and ends that she turns into great art. So of course I want her to share that stuff with us at Thrift Finds!
Second is Jeffrey Brown. Notice the last name? Yes? This is my step-brother. He's got a super fun eye for finding really, REALLY cool stuff. Seriously, he found a huge wax horse head a few weeks ago on the beach! Who finds that? Mom wouldn't let him keep it, apparently it was sticky from the sun. Anyhow that's the sort of awesomeness Jeffrey will be bringing us.

Jack found this one yesterday when we stopped at the Hospice Thrift in Ft. Pierce after a morning of beachcombing. Twenty five cents, a steal just for the cover art! We still play our old vinyl on a turntable so there are crates and crates of old records here. About every other month we fire up the old "record player" and play the oldie but goodies. Even better for the light scratch or blip you hear now and then.
The back of the album is just chock full of information. This album was copyrited 1964 by YG records, Ft. Lauderdale and arranged for the 1964-65 World's Fair exhibit, "The Fabulous State of Florida". The jacket typos are great too, an example: " this album........."will long be remember for their hamonius cast......" two typos in one sentence! We are going to give this hamonius baby a spin this afternoon!

Yes, Cleopatra inspired this purchase! Unless there is something really, really entertaining going on (note the crab climbing her pool cage) , it's impossible to get a photo of her from the front. So I saw this orange/pink/black batik pillow at Dogs and Cats Forever and had to have it. All handmade, it says "Ciao Baby" upper left, and is signed "Lane 92" on the lower right. "Lane" must have a Cleopatra!
