Thrift Share Monday

This Saturday we had another "drywall party" at our house. Also known as free labor. Also known as Johnny's siblings coming over to help us try and get the house renovation done sometime this decade, since it didn't happen in the last decade.

Johnny's sister, Di, sister-in-law, Kelly, and I weren't much help in this department so we decided to bake cupcakes and go thrift store shopping.

I had the thrift store score of a lifetime, just in time for an early birthday present to myself!

A Kitchenaid stand mixer in "avacado" (slightly faded in areas) with glass bowl and whisk for $39 and YES it works. I know!!!! I could barely keep it together while I was checking out at the consignment store and burst through the front door to show Johnny and immediately called my mom to gush about it.

I also found another Fire King piece, to add to my small collection I've acquired the past couple of weeks. I'm now up to 5 pieces, which I just listed on eBay. They're beautiful, but I'll see if anybody else wants them before I resort to using them myself.

I'm linking this up to April Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday and Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays, weekly collections of thrift store finds.

I love thrift store finds. My son Mark bought a George Forman grill for 3 bucks and he's used it pretty much every weekend for the last few years and it still works fine!

I know just how you feel about that mixer. I recently found a 1957 Mixmaster in pink for $25.00 and have been on a cake making spree. I'm a Pyrex gal myself, but those refrigerator dishes are very cute. Great finds!

I absolutely LOVE thrift stores--and wow did you luck out! It's not every day that you find a like-new Kitchen Aid sitting on a shelf. You'll have fun with it!
