Thrift Store Score

 One of my all time favorite scores happened last Thursday. I found this vintage pole lamp. It needed a little work, it was missing the bottom rubber piece and a shade needed fixing but it works just fine.

Gum?

 I've always wanted a gumball machine. I had a small standing one years ago but I sold it. Today, I found a 5 foot Wizard machine. 


I haven't been able to check to see if it works because there is no key for the top and the gum is all melted inside. It was cheap because it has damage as well. Someone burned two holes into it to get free gum, I guess. One hole they patched with a washer and bolt. The other is still there. I'll probably end up buying a new globe.

Lesson Learned

 The other day I found an arm chair at the thrift store. I liked the color and the style. I sat in it and it wasn't uncomfortable so I bought it.


Unfortunately,  I failed to look underneath until today when I noticed some wood pieces on my floor. I flipped it over. The chair is made from mdf board. Not only that, but it appears to have gotten wet.


So, my friends,  flip those chairs over before purchasing it.

Repurposing A Candy Rack

 Yesterday,  I went to Goodwill and I spotted a wire rack on the cart a worker was putting out. On closer inspection,  it was the top half of a candy rack. It was brand new with the cardboard still attached. For 9.99, I thought it would make a pretty cool shoe rack so I bought it. It extends so I can put more shoes on it.

Cursed Items

 Do you believe in cursed items? Do you believe spirits can attach themselves to certain things? Yesterday,  my friend gave me a post mortem photograph to sell on ebay. It is a baby in a buggy who died on Christmas Eve 1915.




Last night, I woke up to a baby crying. I don't know if I was dreaming it or actually hearing it. It was quite spooky and took awhile to fall back asleep. I also felt something crawl into bed with me but my dog was in a different room. I may never sleep again. I will however, be putting the photo into my Bible.

It Goes How?

 Yesterday,  I bought this shoe storage at Goodwill.  


I noticed one side was on wrong or so I thought.


I had my husband switch it so the rough side would be on the inside and the smooth side would be facing out. After, I put my shoes in it, my husband asked if I had it sideways, like it should be 4 across and 3 up and down. I search on the internet and see he is right

So, the one side was never wrong. It was the bottom and not a side. I ended up switching the piece back.
