Thrifty Thursday

Last night when I got home from work, I realized I ‘d forgotten to pick up trash bags, a task I ‘d planned to do on the way home. After putting my feet up for a few minutes, I turned around and headed back out to buy bags and run a few other errands I’d been neglecting.

Somewhere along the way, I got distracted and found myself at a thrift store. If you shop in thrift stores frequently, you know there are days where you see nothing but junk. Yesterday was not one of those days. I came home with a huge pile of awesome junk, including clothes, books and craft supplies.

The great find of the evening though, was a darling set of espresso cups.

We’ve been looking for some simple cups like this for a while. A few months ago I entertained the idea of buying a similar set by Denby but a set of two cups with matching saucers came to about $120.00. We don’t drink espresso every day so that seemed just a little excessive for pieces we’d only use occasionally. With that in mind, 3 for $4.00 was a major steal.

I think it goes without saying – I forgot to buy the bags last night. Whoops.
