Oh My Gosh! I am thoroughly enjoying this weather today! There was rain last eve and behind it, a cold from from the north. High winds from the north west and a temp of 51 degrees, are the makings for some great weather today!
My Mom called me this morning and said she was cold! I had to go and help her with her heaters. She never use the central unit, because she says when it goes off, she's freezing cold. So, we installed those natural gas heaters (the safe ones on the walls and she's satisfied with them).
Today, I thought I'd share a thrift find with you that I purchased well over 25 years ago, and still using it in my bunny bedroom with throws and pillows. The thrift store was the first in our little town, and of course, I was curious and went in to investigate. I remember the older woman there, aloof but, watched my every move!
I started to walk out when I spotted the rocker. There wasn't a tag on it so, I asked the price. She said in a reedy voice, "$50 dollars". I said ok and walked around looking at other things. She came up to me and said, "$40". I didn't respond. We kept this up until she said $20, and I turned and said, "Sold". That was my first buy and first of getting my feet wet at haggling!
The old woman finally admitted she didn't have anyone coming in, I was her first customer! Then I knew why I got that great buy! Of course, I saw other things I wanted and continued to shop there. We became good friends, and she would think of me when she went out to buy.
I keep the wood polished to keep it from cracking. It is still in very good shape. Since I love to rock, I use it quite a bit. Ashley is always there with me. I tried to get a shot of him and he ran away. He doesn't lik the camera.
Do you remember your first thrift purchase? Do you still own it? We would like to hear about your 1st purchase!
