Hello Everyone!

Habitat Re-Store is one of my favorite thrift stores.  I am a frequent shopper to say the least.  LOL!  This past Friday I made my way down to Re-Store just before they closed at 4pm and came away with some great finds!  🙂  Check out my loot! 

A few more Autumn/Fall decorations.  All of my fall decorations have come from thrift stores and these fit in perfectly.

 

I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day and could not pass up this little sign to hang on the door. 

And check out the original price tag for the cute St. Patty’s Day decor.  $7.99 are you kidding me!!!  That is nuts! 

I am hoping to do a beach-theme in my soon-to-be office (I have a ton of large shells, coral, and other beach stuff already) and thought these three items would work perfectly.  I have eyed the seashell balls in the stores before, but never wanted to pay that much for one.   SCORE!

These baskets will come in handy either for holding magazines, incoming mail, and who knows what.  Baskets are your friend when it comes to organization! 

I am working on building my collection of picture frames.  I want to do a collage of pictures in our stairwell in our house we are renovating.  These will work perfectly in that space or in other areas of the house.  Several of these were still in plastic packaging = brand new!  🙂

Found 3 books that grabbed my attention:  one on Baby Sign Language, one on developing literacy in children, and last Pottery Barn Bedrooms book.   Woo Hoo! 

A look inside the Pottery Barn bedroom book.  The book was first printed in 2003.  It is missing the front cover, but has great content.  We are working on our blueprint plans for our house we are remodeling and we have decided to add a master suite.  This book will definitely come in handy!  Found it online new on Amazon from $4.24 – $48.29.  Steal of deal for me.

I have a hard time not buying decorative glassware and decanters are my weakness.  Pete has a weakness for them as well. 😉 I also picked up a Cocktail Recipe book.  Not that we are big drinkers, but Pete and I enjoy an occasional adult beverage.  Once Baby Peanut is here and I am able to enjoy an adult beverage again, I plan on finding a really interesting cocktail to celebrate. 

And the last 2 items…not all that snazzy, but they are definitely useful.  2 over-the-door hangers.  Perfect timing for my fall wreaths and upcoming Christmas decor. 

I know all of you want to know just how much I paid for all this fantastic stuff (well I think it is fantastic, you don’t have to agree).  Any guesses???   Drumroll please…

WOO HOO!  $10 for all that stuff!  LOVE IT!  And that is why Habitat Re-Store is one of my favs!  🙂  Have you been thrifting lately?  Have you visited your local Habitat Re-Store?  If not, what are you waiting for?!?!?  I hope you have found some great deals lately, too!
