My Thrifting Adventure!

My sister asked me to make her a gallery wall for Christmas. So, of course I gladly said yes and I'm probably more excited than she is! I went to several thrift stores including Goodwill and the Salvation Army. I found some awesome deals!  I snagged all of her picture frames for less than $13, and even scored something for myself!

I was snooping through giant boxes at Goodwill for frames and mirrors. I was going from box to box, and then suddenly I saw "the" box. It had beams of light shining out of it, and angels singing. A 68 piece vintage Sheffield dish set. Yes, 68 pieces! Marked for only $3.99! At first I thought, okay someone forgot to add the last 9.. But, no! The cashier rang them up for $3.99, and I went skipping out of the store as happy as can be.  When I got home I decided I'd look them up online. A 63 piece set was selling for $200, and I only paid $3.99! I feel so amazing that I got a good deal, and I finally found the perfect dish set!

Now, for the sneak peak on the frames! Of course they're not so pretty right now, but I'll be posting the tutorial on how I fix them up soon!
