"Junk Therapy" before work today!

Yesterday, our local Senior Center opened a a new THRIFT STORE!

They kicked the opening off by having a big "Garage Sale." So......Before I headed off to work at Joyworks, I stopped in when they opened......Craziness! Tons of people, Tons of "stuff" and Tons of friends/neighbors and co-workers digging through the madness........

I found some great old Bobeche's

Fun old spool of Lace

My biggest "finds" were probably the HUGE bags of Vintage leaves I, of course, White in all shapes and sizes and some Metalics........Not Japanese,,(from the 40's and 50's.) These were all Korean, so more likely 60's and 70's....But if you NEED any,,,I've got em.

It was great therapy to plow through the masses and find a few treasures! Cheaper than a Therapist!

Enjoy your Sunday,,,,,,it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here, so we'll be Hoppin' at Joyworks!

Hugs, Love and a "Therapeutic Bus" on the Cheek!

I also found a fun "Mc Call's" Ribbon Rose kit,,,,all in tact, for 50 Cents.

And a set of 4 heavy duty Bobeche's.......

(Spread 'em out in an old galvanized Oil pan I found that I plan to use to start some seedlings in.....)


  1. Good for you! I've found some great vintage finds at our local Sr. Center. Wishing you lots of treasure hunting days!
