Frugal Fun: Estate Sale Take
While I'm usually extra careful with my cash when it comes to estate sale shopping, sometimes I see items so good that I can't help myself. The damage? A whole $38!
Half of it went to a framed photograph, which I couldn't resist since all the dapper young men in the image were gathered underneath a sign that says, "Girls." Go figure!
Toss in two issues of TV Guide from the '60s, an unused box of playing cards, a tin full of pencils,(underneath the magazines), a pair of cuff links and a tie clip engraved with the letter "F" and a tiny needlepoint of a horse and buggy, and it all adds up.
Some of my treasures will become gifts; others are headed to my walls. Either way, this side-trip was one of the highlights of my trip to Los Angeles, leaving with me with warm souvenirs for many years to come.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
The Elegant Thrifter
