New Thrift/Junk Store/Give-away Win/Possible Swap

   We all went "junking" and had  a good time at the thrift/ junk/consignment shop today.  We went to a little place in LaCrosse, Florida, all that is there is a fire station and Jiffy store.  This place looked like it could fall down any minute.  We all found several  good buys, no one left empty-handed, even my hubby found a Prince Albert Tin that he had to have.

This is a group shot of all of us, except the hubbies, forgot to get a picture of them!
Diane, Debbie, Kimmie, Eileen, Christina and Nessa, Me and Mary

Debbie and I
Eileen, I think she bought every Easter Rabbit There!
Christina and her daughter
The group of bloggers--Debbie (Debbies Dodads), Me and Mary, and Diane (Country Doings)
Kimmie, looking for that bargain1
 This is what I ended up with, a rocker for displaying dolls, a wire/wood dispaly rack, an enamel ware plate and a wooly sheep sign.
                                                    My dolls fit perfectly on this rocker. 
We plan to go back next month and see what else we can find.  Mary gave up shopping for Lent and couldn't buy anything today, just had to look and hope someone would "gift" her.  I think she got gifted once

I won a give-away, sponsored by Prim Pals.  A little silhouette box from Karen of Barely There Primtive Bear.  Thank you Karen! and Prim Pals.

I am also gauging interest to see if anyone would be interested in a one-on-one doll/bear swap with me.  If you are,  please email me.  I have a few dolls that I have received in swaps and would like to add a couple more, I will probably limit to the first five who email me, but who knows.  

I hope everyone has a good "rest" of the weekend.   Cyndy

  6. I love the wooly sheep. Here in Alabama, we call "junkin" "scrappin" and it is so fun. The Prince Albert tin, is that an old snuff box? I have been looking for one a long time.

  7. Looks like fun-fun-fun...will definitely stop there when we are in the's a little too far for a one day trip from where I live. Love the cute little rocking chair..dolls look so sweet sitting in it. The wood/wire item... interesting...what was it intended for when it was built?...some type of cage?
    Happy Crafting,


We love hearing from you!
