Thrifty Finds




You can blame my friend Erin, at Swonderland, for the two posts in one day. :) Her new weekly thrifting column was just too tempting not to join in.
We've had a busy week, so not a lot of thrifting has been happening. But, I did want to share the story of Levi's new prized possession, the little stove top espresso maker in the picture above. We've been on the hunt for one just like it for a few months now. In the meantime Levi has taken every chance he could to steal mine. 
A few days ago, we were on the way to my parents' house. As we passed an area with a few thrift/consignment shops I heard one call to me. What? Thrift shops don't speak to you? ;) Anyway, I pulled the truck over and toted the kids inside. As we meandered through, we spotted it....his very own itty bitty coffee maker. He beamed. I beamed. It was cheap, so it came home with us. The coolest result of this little find is that Levi is now officially hooked on thrifting. Of course, that makes this mama so proud.
