Oops, I thrifted again.

(I'm not sure I can really call the Peddler's Mall a "thrift store" -- in some ways it is...but it's also an antique store/vendor mall, too -- but for the sake of today's title, we're going to pretend it is indeed a thrift store.)  :)

So I had to get out of the house today.  Mike had some grad school work to do, and sometimes I have this annoying habit of interrupting.  So I drove to the Peddler's Mall.  I was on a mission of sorts -- to find an older-style coffee pot (and belated Mother's Day gift) for my mom.  I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found some other things.


The chair is part of today's finds.  I'm happy about the old dymo label maker -- in it's original box for a whole dollar.  But seriously, that camera!!!  I saw it hanging on a wall...I couldn't even see the front until I picked it up.  I've been looking for one like this for a little while now...I just assumed I would have to find it on ebay if I really wanted one.  On top of that, the price was right, too. 

(Oh, and we really do know how to paint walls, despite what this photo above might say.  That's primer.  Painting happens sometime after school is over.)

Here are the finds that didn't come home with me: 










(All I can say is it's a very good thing I don't have kids, because I don't think I would have had the will-power to resist this child-sized retro table and chairs.)




And now it's bedtime.  I have to get ready for the last week of school.  Yay!

I am pretty sure my grandparents had a couch with the same crazy print as that chair you didn't buy. :)
