National Thrift Store Day — A Day Late

Yesterday was National Thrift Store Day. Yay! I love to thrift. Yes, in my world it's a verb. It's what I do. My thrifting finds have furnished my home (and now my daughter's college apartment), have made me money (the $1.99 tablecloth from Goodwill that I sold on Ebay for $150.00, the $5.00 birdcage appraised at $585.00 that I might sell . . . someday), and turned many of my events into something special.

In honor of yesterday's holiday, I share with you my most recent find. This adorable vintage lampshade found at Goodwill for $4.00. Since Harleigh took her nightstand lamp with her to college, I needed a new lamp. Paired this shade with a $20 Target lamp (a simple white ceramic retro-looking one), and I think we have a winner!

Her previous black and white drapes (now also at college) have been replaced with airy lace curtains from IKEA.

For me, everyday is National Thrift Store Day!

I love your lampshade; I would have bought it, too.
Can't believe I missed National Thrift Store Day.
Guess I'll just have to try and make up for it.....
Since I like "thrifting" as much as you do, it shouldn't be too hard!
