If the estate sale is in a home worth less than half a million yes...otherwise there is nothing thrifty about it.

I would have to say keep it to thrift stores, mainly because it makes it to easy for some of the furniture finds. For instance matching lamps in a thrift is probably gonna be a whole lot harder that at an estate sale. Sewing machine, trophy, gloves, things like this are too easy in a home. Also there are not always price tags at estate sales so it's hard to prove that you just aren't in your own basement. My two cents.

OK, just to keep the peace, I will stick to the stores.

This week's challenge is haaaard.

Finally got to start working on the list. Particularly proud of this one.



And yes, I took close up shots with a few of the first place trophies.

I've got two shops here that always seem to have at least a shelf of trophies. And 1 that turns up vintage Pyrex/Anchor Hocking Fire King on a regular basis. Will be visiting there tomorrow. Backscratchers, shoe horn, and shell cordovan are gonna be tough ones here.
