Thrill of the Thrift-Know When to Hold ‘Em & Know When to Fold ‘Em

Thrifting can really be hit or miss.  There are some days I leave a thrift shop with an overwhelming amount of stuff and others a somewhat underwhelming amount of stuff – or nothing at all for that matter.  I can scan a yard sale from the street and know if it’s worth stopping at and I can breeze through a thrift store and sense there’s something awesome hidden in the store somewhere … or just know “today is not the day”.

These bad boys I found buried under a stack of crappy metallic and plastic frames at a local Salvation Army.  They were taped together with the backs facing outward, so really it was anybody’s guess what they were.  I was drawn to the red color of the frames as they peeked out from the pile.  Only a small gamble to remove the tape only to turn them over and find hand embroidered tea towels.  At 67 cents for the 2 of them I’d call that a Win!
