Thrifty Thursday #34

Today I am off to Ventura Ca. for Craftcation. I am a bundle of nerves and excitement. I’m hoping for a fun few days meeting new people and learning tricks of the trade. Did I mention I’m nervous?
Anyways, I wanted to show off my thrifty finds for the week before I left! I was scanning the thrift store on base and saw this plastic bag filled with dark material. At first I was just going to pass it by but I gave it a second look. Then I realized that there were burlap sacks inside the plastic bag. Squee!
 I couldn’t really tell how big they were, what condition they were in, or what was written on them. However the bag was $8 so I decided to just take the risk for that price! So glad I did. Look how beautiful these bags are? 
I couldn’t resit myself when I came upon this old dresser. Honestly, I tell myself NO MORE FURNITURE, but when I see something I love at a good price I can’t help myself. What’s a thrifty furniture loving girl to do? 
I love furniture with nice legs! 
And for a “get real” moment…..I will show you why I keep telling myself “NO MORE FURNITURE!!!”. This is the inside of my garage…..well half of it. The other half is filled with my hubbies tools and a treadmill. So as you can see I am pretty much full up. When I get back from my conference I think you will probably be seeing a lot of furniture re-do making their appearance on the blog!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
