Thrifting! Day 1

I just love staying in hotels!  Can turn every single light on, air conditioning/heat as long as you want and do things you wouldn't do in your own home.  Although, I've all ready ironed my T-shirts, which I don't do at home!  LOL!  I check in and immediately unpack, iron and clean the coffee maker.  Yes, clean the coffee maker.  I don't leave home without cleaner and my own coffee.  All that is done, so I decided to take some photos and post them.  Bear with me, I'm using a tiny little netbook (which I love but it's tiny and old and slow) and it's an older version of Windows so I had to figure out how to edit my photos.  They aren't the best but I think you'll get them.

First place I stopped is my all time favorite place.  I found this item in the office supply section.  It's cloth covered and oh, so industrial.

It's a ledger!

Next was this Corelle plate but what the heck is on it?

The Pillsbury Doughboy!!

This was a little bag filled with goodies.  You never know exactly what you'll find inside.

There's a few mini Christmas ornaments which will be perfect for my Norfolk Island Pine tree but what I spotted that I really loved are these:
Aren't they just the cutest?  I know there's a name for these so I have some research to do.  It's a heavy paper material.  They have pipe cleaner arms!

I got two of these cute clown heads for dolls.  I think I'll need to remove them from the bags in order to get decent photos.

It seems it's thin pickings right now.  Maybe people are still having yard sales.  I am earlier than usual.  I went to 3 more thrift shops and only found these.
Metal bookends in a wonderful color and in great condition.

Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow!
