The following are this weekend's thrift shop finds with the first up being Japanese made Lefton Christmas boy and girl with lambs.  I paid the grand sum of $1 each for these collectible cuties.  

As with retail, I shop "off season" thrift and bought a red-checkered square dance blouse (future costume for some yet unknown purpose) and three tank tops for less than $6.  

This thrift shop bowl I bought as a gift ($10.50) - for you ceramicists, perhaps you can decipher the markings on the bottom of the bowl?  I like the zebra-striping, it is a lovely creation.  

Here is an attempt at "craphting" as dearhelenhartman would say.  The vase and Christmas tree print tie are both thrifted, the bulb sprigs are from Tarzhay (aka Target).  

What I am listening to ~ A Christmas Album compilation.
