Here are the items for this week's finds. It's a pretty good score. And over half of the items were used as gifts.
I have a friend who is developing her skills with leather working. But leather is very expensive. I found a suede jacket and a pair of leather pants. They cost me fifty cents a piece, she is using the leather to make new items. It was a score that made her extremely happy.
I found a brand new soap and lotion from The Body Shop. I spent a dollar, it costs way more at the store. And I found a really great silver bracelet that was a fabulous gift for a friend of my mother's. She needed a birthday gift to give her, and this hit the spot.
Another sweet goodie was the handmade soap with horses on it. It was perfect for a friend who loves riding.
And finally, there is a purple cashmere sweater. The sweater is in bad shape. There is a hole in it, and a couple of buttons are missing. But it's cashmere. At the very least I can unravel it and reuse the yarn. And the best part, it cost fifty cents.
So do you ever use thrifted finds as part of a gift?
