While here, I have done some shopping as well as some thrift store hunting. Thrift stores can be so much fun if you find the right things!
For $20 I got:
4 children's books that will help this semester when I am in Kindergarten,
A couple funny t-shirts (1 is a brightly colored 80's tee with a front pocket, and 1 has an abnormally large Bigfoot creature on the front that says "Bigfoot Hiking Club"),
A 100% silk Liberty of London brand paisley tie (to make bobbies out of),
A 3 shelved rolling cart for moving things to and from at the festival
A brand new french memo board
and a VHS (because I still have a player...)
While I'm here, I'm going to switch out my bedding at school with the bedding I have here (Yay!), and will be taking my refurbished table back to school with me. Why, I'm not sure, since I will be moving out in a couple months!
Here is the table before (another great thrift find! $10 Ikea round table)...
|Joey wanted to be in there!|

And after some tips and reading up on weathering with paint, here is the after...
|The legs were sanded to show wear on the curves|
|You can see in the mid to bottom left where the crackling glaze was too thick and did not work out too well, but I can just put a lamp or something over it, I guess!|
Back on the road tomorrow...
