less than $4

I haven’t been thrift shopping in ages.  It’s just been too hot.  But the heat has finally started dipping into the low to mid 90’s.  It’s an improvement, believe me.

So I came across a few AWESOME finds.

This little suitcase for $3.  It’s in great condition and now houses all my art paints (which kinda makes me want to paint it).

An organ sheet music book for my art, journal and collage needs.  It’s a thick one and should last me a while.  Only a quarter.

And lastly, the pièce de résistance, Charlie Harper’s Giant Golden Book of Biology!!! This little beauty cost me a whopping $.69!!!   I couldn’t believe I found it.  The cover is dirty and drawn on a bit and one of the pages has scribbles, otherwise, it is in beautiful condition. The illustrations are AMAZING!! I will cherish this book forever!

    Oh my gosh, how is is that I just found your blog?! I love everything about it! Please, oh please, tell me where you do your thrifting. I’m a fellow Tucsonan and have never really had the time to seek out the best shops. By the way, the low-90s does really feel like a cold snap, doesn’t it?
