REDNESDAY-Thrifting In Chicago!
Last week our daughter had to make a trip to Chicago, so I tagged along and made her check out some thrift stores while we were there. My finds were red!
But first we stopped at a cupcake shop, Sweet Mandy B's! Isn't it cute?
I almost picked one of those pink and red ones.....
But ended up with a Snickerdoodle cupcake.
Liz enjoyed a lemon cupcake. The shop is SO adorable!
Then we walked to this little shop, selling all things Parisienne. Liz bought a poster for her bedroom wall.
At Village Discount, I found this vintage tablecloth. It was only $1.80!
I also found this vintage Fisher Price Happy Apple Chime for 50 cents there! Ever since I saw Holly's, I've wanted one. They are crazy expensive at antique stores! Liz found a little Eiffel Tower lamp at Goodwill, which I forgot to take a picture of. We only went to a few thrift stores while we were there, and only the ones that didn't say "upscale", because I am not an upscale type of girl!
Liz gave me this cute little box for Mother's Day.
And she also gave me that double bucket garden thingy. It sits on the front porch, and holds gardening tools and garden gloves.
I'm pretty happy that Liz is embracing the whole thrifting thing. Finally! It makes a thrifty Mom like me proud!
