Thrifting, Treasures & Mom

Hi Junkers!

With the weekends being a bit crazy, I decided to take Monday off from the 9-5’er & took Mom to DSM thrift store shopping!  We set out early, map in hand, & made it to some new-to-us places & a couple tried-n-true ones as well.  I’m giving Facebook links so you can ‘like’ them & find yourself some treasures too!

I almost passed up on this beautiful print, sure glad I changed my mind.  Found the perfect spot for it too.

When Mom & I heard that a new Stuff Etc. store had opened, we knew we had to go!  With College Girl no longer near the Ankeny store, it made even more sense.  The above print came from there along with a couple Summer dresses & a few gift items.  Mom found some cute home decor & misc things; our shopping cart was full….as usual….teehee.

Mom was looking for a new end table & an adorable white wicker one was sitting, waiting for her at TLC Vintage Collection at a super reasonable price too.  When she got it home, it was perfect 🙂

A new, fun place was Do Overz!  It’s super roomy with a huge selection {furniture, home decor, Pyrex & antiques too}.  I found the little cube picture in the next photo:

I got it mostly because it made me smile & reminded me of me & my Junk Hunk Hubby 🙂  The quote says ” Life is not a matter of counting years, but a matter of making years count “

Other places worth mentioning are ReStyle {beautiful selection of women’s consignment clothing, accessories & purses}, HCI Giving Tree {what a good cause to support & lots of variety: clothing, furniture & home decor} & Changing Places {high end used furniture & home decor}.

The best part was just being out & about with my Mom ❤ .  We had some much needed, good laughs & on the way home we saw a few pair of swans in a corn field!

Make sure you get a chance to support small business & causes & have some fun too!

Happy Thrifting!
