Last weekend I was rained out on Saturday (and there were no indoor sales that I was aware of) so Sunday was my only day to hit the local sales. I went to five of them-yes, FIVE-and did not find ANYTHING!!! It was not that any of them were junk, they just had things I was not in the market for: newer items, toys, children’s items, clothes and large furniture (tables and chairs, etc).
It was nice to be at it again in the crisp weather-it was 70 degrees here on Sunday-so the outcome was by no means a complaint. But the cooler air always puts me in the mood to hit some of my favorite stores to see what is new for the season. I do not purchase a lot, maybe a few pieces here and there to mix in with my vintage items, and I shop at stores where I get the most bang for my buck.
While most of my decorating this time of year is with real pumpkins and other finds from nature (read: acorns and leaves), a few store-bought items peppered in seem to complete the look I am going for.
Some of my favorite places to visit are the Christmas Tree Shops, the Dollar Tree and Michaels.
At the Christmas Tree Shop I found some burlap pumpkins and seasonal pot holders.
At the Dollar Tree I found a witches sign (and some bungee cords for those big treasures I find that need to be secured in my car).
At Michaels I found another seasonal sign and some burlap ribbon that I plan to use on my Christmas tree.
I am still in the throes of organizing and decorating my apartment, but soon I will show you how I incorporate these purchases in my space.
Until next time, fellow vixens, happy digging!!!
