A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Thrifting Trip 2014...

I just completed a 2 day thrifting trip with a group of sweet and Godly ladies.
(Sorry, there is not 1 single picture of me. I'll have to do better at that...)

This year we got smart and took along a trailer...

At lunch time - it became our  'picnic table' - 
right smack in the middle of a thrift store parking lot...

 Someone decided we needed to make a stop at
 Sweet Frog in beautiful downtown Lewisburg, PA...
(A frozen yogurt joint - but they have a non dairy option that is wonderful!)

Ten hours of shopping later we arrived at a cabin where we spent the night. 
While these pictures are lousy - 
I'm including them to prove we did see a bear.  
He gave quite the performance and stayed around for a while.  

Breakfast on day 2 was buffet style... scrambled eggs and all the trimmings.
We're talking ham, onions, peppers, cheese, pepperoni and salsa for wraps...

Before we hit the shops - we had a morning devotional 
on the topic of 'gifts that God has granted to us'.
  What preciousness as we went around the table and shared
recent gifts we each noted from the hand of our Father.  

An exiciting find on the way home was this lovely
 sofa in great condition.  Cost?  Just $50! 
Of course we had to load it ourselves.  (not a problem...)

 I was intrigued with this beautiful church...
 ...and then discovered it has been revamped into
 luxury apartments called 'The Sanctuary'.  Love!!

Our trailer fastly became a key commodity...

These girls knew how to strap 'em in and tie 'em down!

My favorite find of the trip?  
70% dark chocolate for 79 cents at a discount grocery store.
(Not what you expected I'm sure.)
I'll share more finds in future posts.  But let me just say -
there's nothing like girlfriends and some time away.
  Any bargains we found were just a bonus!

Joyce, what a wonderful trip, with 'faithfilled' friends, a true blessing!
We are in process of relocating, and a specific prayer request is to get connected with a group of ladies that love each other, their Lord, and help each other to grow. Glad you had such fun. ( my favorite thrift store purchase this summer, from the town we are headed to, is a replacement for my bread machine. Handy for making just one loaf for the 2 of us. Cost? $3.99, and the man apologized for the price. When we move I think I will bring him some bread! Deedy

Yay! What a fun time!

It will be neat to see what you picked up on your trip! You never know what you are going to find!

And how neat for you all to see bears!
