Things have been pretty busy this past week at the Tupperware party. I've torn my house apart to pull items together to make a donation to charity.
Saturday I tackled my laundry room, which was disgusting! Things just got piled and piled on top of each other. It was a non-stop day of laundry, cleaning and grime.
Sunday I slept in a bit then got up and mowed the lawn. The temperatures have dropped slightly here in Louisville, but it was still muggy and hot to me. I went in and told Greg that after I showered and cleaned up, he was taking me to lunch and thrifting. There was no arguing with me about that!
After lunch, we went to a Peddlar's Mall in the east end. I had a sneaky suspicion that prices would be higher than the south or west end, and I was slightly correct. Greg had never been to one and luckily they had a wheelchair he could use instead of hobbling on his crutches or waiting for me- because I take my sweet time while thrifting LOL.
Again, I have to remember to start taking my camera. I love, love, LOVE seeing antiques! I found a set of Kromex kitchen canisters, but wasn't in love with them because they had a fake woodgrain texture on them. I'm really looking for a set of them in the popular turquoise/aqua color.
I also saw a gorgeous Bakelite radio for $45. I would have gotten it if the funds were available. The only find I took home was a 1960 Singer buttonholer. I found it there $4 cheaper than in the south end- very surprised about that.
This weekend my ex-husband is supposed to swing by and pick up an entertainment center and end tables that we once shared. I got them in the divorce, but they are too big for my living and simply want them gone! I'm thinking something smaller for the TV and a pair of 2-tiered end tables in their places. I keep seeing a set at the American Council for the Blind thrift store, but can't commit until the other furniture is gone. Hopefully they'll still be there!
