I was off today and had my plans together this morning for some thrift shopping. First stop was Catholic Social Services. I must say it was nice to take my time and leisurely stroll through the store verses rushing through during my lunch break. I found a couple of things I am very excited about. Back in the sewing area I found 2 American Fashion Institute Master Pattern kits. These will be staying with me. The next item I came across is quite adorable, there on the shelf mixing up some cocktails was Jeeves. He is a decanter made in Japan (he came with a little bar and glasses). Although I do collect bar ware, I think Jeeves is going to the booth. The last item I picked up was a lovely glass bottle, not sure if it is a perfume bottle or not, but it was unique and it will accompany Jeeves over to the booth.
Quite satisfied and ready to move on, I headed over to the Salvation Army. I found several books that had beautiful illustrations and had to put them in my cart. Also found another sewing book for my collection. Picked up a few sewing notions, several glasses and a old paint by number picture.

So I had a very successful day. Hope you did too!
