The Way I Recycle

I don't allow myself to go thrifting unless I bring in things to donate.
I donate, then I shop.
Today I was a very happy lady!
Black suit case
Little white make up case
Brand NEW glue gun
Little lamp shade
Working lamp
Three bathroom globes

Love the shape of these, they remind me of the 20's. I bought 2 $29.99 vanity bathroom fixtures marked down to $7.50 each. One for the bathroom downstairs and one for the half bath. I still have to find 3 more for the other bathroom.

Rob and I decided the downstairs will have a travel theme, since we traveled when he was in the Army for over 20 years.

The black one looks like it was hardly used!
 Love that mirror.

I really like these!
I'm not sure if I want to leave them like this or frost them. What do you think?
Oh all this for $9.00!!!!

Oh boy! You found treasures! Love the two suit cases. My mother's cosmetic's case (like the white one) always smelled of lipstick and Windsong perfume. I love that!

Love the white case. My mom had one only it was pink inside and it smelled of Cotillion perfume. I only got to play with it every now and then - she must have had a lot a memories tied to it.

Great finds! I use old suitcases to store my grandkids toys in. They are in my living room, so I wanted them nicely hidden. :-)

Those bathroom globes look like they are in perfect shape. Way. to. thrift.!!
