We just returned from 4 days in Vegas visiting Grandparents. My men always look forward to Vegas where G-ma Sai dote’s on them with some good old fashioned spoiling. Suckers right after teeth have been brushed, chocolate milk with cereal, McDonalds for lunch, playing the “Wii” in to the “Wee” hours of the night. Who needs Disney Land?
Mom and I also spent some girl time gabbin and shoppin, shoppin and gabbin. Check out our loot…
The mirror was $10.00 and the chandelier was $5.00.
I plan to spray paint both. The mirror…maybe a chalkboard?
Vegas has WAY better thrift stores than Tucson. Ding, dong me forgot my camera. I found 3 harp back wood chairs with upholstered seats for $4.99 each, an old french wood desk with really pretty legs for $40.00 and a gold and glass end table for $10.00. If I had a trailer to haul it back to Tucson I would have bought it all…WHY? WHY? WHY?
My most exciting score of the trip…
You’re not going to believe how much I paid for this. $5.00! Found it at a warehouse that sells old hotel furniture. See here. All the chairs in the parking lot are $5.00 because they are damaged in some way…again, ding dong me forgot her camera. No matter, since I plan to re-upholster it anyway (although I do love the thick, orangey corduroy). Maybe I’ll enlist the inmates on this job.
