{ Friday Foto Friends }

 Jess picked me up around 8 Saturday morning and we headed to Alcoa and Maryville for a belated Mother's Day outing ... and she dropped me back off close to 3:30...we were both so tired... but my heart was happy! Can't think of anything I'd rather do than thrift... or anybody I'd rather spend the day with... than my Girl!!

This is where we headed first. It's one of those places where you dig through bins... well worth it. Brand new clothing from Amazon on a separate table for $1.55 each piece... all other items were a little more ...I got lots of good stuff, including 2 garden flags, pistachios, a Christmas tree storage bag, a wood and metal tiered tray, and sandwich bag organizer containers. 

Only purchased one thing here... 
a really pretty stainless coffee mug. 

Loved this place... the lady who worked there was so kind. Only got one thing... a Lands End shirt for $1.00 that I'm gonna add some lace to the sleeves to make it a little more "girly".

Such a cute store on the outside, but I didn't find anything.

I didn't get anything here either... the prices were a little high... but I loved the cause they support. There was a blessing box outside the store and I'd just talked to Jess about a blessing box not an hour before we pulled in there... don't you love how God works? 

All clothing here was 50 cents but I didn't realize that until I went to pay for the one shirt I found... 
Jess and I went back to that area and I spent $1.50 more.  

Not a thrift store, but we went here last... I spent less than $5 on diced peach cups and toilet bowl cleaner... what a combo.  We also went to a really neat little store called Lynn's Discounts, but I failed to get a pic. I got 3 pretty mini journals with scripture on the front... and a skein of yarn...of course! 

Me and my sweet Girl! 

HOPE everybody has a safe and blessed weekend and Memorial Day. 
Thank you to all the veterans for my freedom. 
As much complaining as we hear, I hope we never forget how blessed we are.


  1. Looks like you and your sweet daughter had a blessed and wonderful day together, with lots of great bargains!! What fun! You are blessed to have each other to do things like this together! I hope you have a blessed Memorial Day weekend.

  2. Looks like you had a fun filled day! Where is that Restore, Lucky 5, and Bargain Hunt located? I love Second Chance but haven't been in a while.

  3. Oh what fun you had!! Isn't it fun to find great buys and be with cherished loved ones!!

  4. Wish I could go thrifting with you! How fun. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
