Bargains, bargains, bargains!

Since I arrived in The Magnolia State, I have been searching and searching for old window panes. I visited a few antique stores and they weren’t my cup of tea…they were the expensive antiques. Like the $200 for a crumbling wooden chair antiques. I was also searching for an old chair but decided that dream would have to die for now! I like thrifting, not antiquing.
This past week after chasing a girl down in the lunch room to ask where she got her cute pants- yes, I do this on a regular basis – I found out there was a cute thrift store in town! Now, back to the pants…y’all might think I’m crazy but there really isn’t anywhere to shop in town so I find out how to get stuff whenever I get the chance! I take that back, there is one store that has Life is Good, Vera Bradley and Sperry’s all in the same store but that’s a post for another day!
Now back to the thrift store; I’m all over the place today. They have clothes, cheap antiques, purses, shoes, etc! All the clothes are priced at an average of $10/item. They have J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, etc. Bottom line, it’s good stuff.
If you are in the Starkville area I would check it out. It’s on Hwy 12 on the west side of town by Regions Bank and Zaxby’s.

Those of you who know me know that 1) I love blogging 2) I love reading other peoples blogs. I think everyone should have a blog…I have probably even told some of you that! One of the blogs I like to read is Nesting Place. The Nester’s motto is, “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful”. The Nester is pretty much my hero. I like her because 1) she can relate to decorating on a budget and does it herself! 2) she has lived in homes that she owned and rentals; all of which she made “her home”. She knows how to make due with what she has on hand and can make anything look beautiful in her home. If you don’t believe me check out her site…she found a large creepy owl at a thrift store and made it look neat! The nesting place blog…
She was the inspiration for my living room… I think I almost have it done! What do you think?
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
