Thrifting Serendipity

There are many blogs out there with interesting citations of 'why i thrift'. In fact I find the vicarious thrill of someone else's score is all that much sweeter knowing I don't have to make room for it. Hats off to all who wisely adhere to the one-in, one-out policy.

But I do love the serendipity of finding a rosendahl mini monkey knock-off for a friend; or toting home a bedraggled cross stitch on one outing; then later finding the pattern book featuring that exact pattern on the cover. Done, and done.

Especially nice when the cross stitch looks better than the photograph!
