Thrift Stores Yard Sales Flea Markets and Junking

Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Flea Markets, and Junking too! Love this time of year, the weather is right to get out there, and to go treasure hunting! Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams.  By the way, I have been known to curb hop for treasures, and once in a while have my feet hanging from a dumpster seeing something I have to have, or see possibilities with too.

I have not been out thrifting yet, and it has been bothering me too! I honestly don't have the room for it at this time. Heck, I have a bedroom I am trying to figure out where to put everything in it to make some room so I can get around it, and paint the walls in there.....Long story everyone. I just talked with a contractor, and hopefully I have come up with some kind of an idea to make some room to do this...crossing fingers. 

Anyway, I will share a few pictures of one of my last times I was able to go thrifting. I did not find much...gotta be in the right mood to shop too, ya know:) I generally do find glass pieces I can use in some way in the home, or to reuse and repurpose with too. I do know there are one, or is it 2 pieces in these pictures that I have completed items with by repurposing them...what fun! I will have to dig for those after shots for ya to see:)

Holiday Weekend is about 1/2 where here. Any big plans anyone? Not me. Just hanging around the house, and finish up with some painting...if I can. Maybe I can find it in me to finish a few projects I had started too. Just lazy days here:) 

Thanks for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams. Glad to have you drop by, and if you want, comments are always welcome too. Love hearing from everyone, and what they have to share as well!:) Take care, and see you again soon.

Welcome Back to Thrift Store Junkies at LilacsNDreams

Hello, and Welcome back to Thrift Store Junkies! Here it is Sunday, and I am was the weekend for you? Any good finds? Were you able to get to any thrift stores this weekend, or maybe even some garage sales too. Weather has been getting great here, and of course graduations all weekend long too! Busy, busy, busy. 

Next weekend is Memorial Weekend. Now, any plans for that weekend? I was wondering since it's a holiday if there were any good Flea Markets happening in your neck of the woods? I have to check before I say anything, but not real sure for around here. Would be a good weekend to do some digging, and getting around to a few places, don't you think? For those that travel even more fun!

Not too much happening here this weekend for me. Just family, and working on some more painting upstairs. If I keep going I might just get it done this week yet...wouldn't that be nice:) I have to figure out what to do with everything in the one bedroom...where to put I can make the room to get in there, and paint. Whew! That one might be a chore. 

Well, hope ya'll had a great weekend. Thanks so much for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies at LilacsNDreams. See ya'll again soon.

Visit New Thrift Store Junkies Blog Page at LilacsNDreams

Welcome again to Thrift Store Junkies page for LilacsNDreams everyone! Glad to have you back, and happy to see you passing by too. 

What a week it has been so far! I was gonna stop at a thrift store on the way home from appointments, but kept on going. I was tired...only about 3 hours of sleep last night. Not sure what the problem was, but I shall sleep good tonight. Thoughts and ideas hopefully will fill my dreams of some pieces I have sitting here that I want to repurpose with too. 

I have been thinking, not sure yet, just throwing some ideas around with Me mind...LOL:) I was thinking of maybe changing the name of this page. Nothing serious, still use Thrift in it, but shorter, or something a bit more catchy, or.....Hmmm....just not sure yet. Thought has crossed my mind. Since I have had to do a new blog I guess some other changes would come with it to, right?:)

Not much of any other kind of news...I am itching to go thrifting, and digging for some things. That time of year, and cabin fever has set in. Time to get out there, and go hunting!:) Hey, if you would happen to have any ideas of another name for this page, if maybe I should change the name, or maybe think of some words I can play around with too. I am open to suggestions:)

Thanks for visiting Thrift Store Junkies page all. Take care, and see you again soon! Happy Thrifting!:)

Thrift Store Junkies New Blogger Page at LilacsNDreams

Hello, and once again Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies new page with LilacsNDreams! First of all, I would like to again apologize for any inconvenience this has been for anyone who has been following with me. I feel really bad about this, and have spent all day working on getting my blog back up, and running. Unfortunately, everything prior to this has been lost. I have tried contacting with Google to fix this issue, but there is just no straight forward way of doing that. You have to leave questions out in the open, and hope that someone comes along to answer. I would like to have them review this issue of what happened, and reinstate my previous blogs as I have had those for a lil over 3 years, and really did work with them. 

Anyway, so far it does not look promising with that. So, instead of sitting around and waiting for an answer, or having my questions answered I have gone back into blogland, and am starting everything all over again. I know a little bit more this time, have seen things along the way, and hopefully it can help me get my standing back up quicker than what I did before. If you see some of my posts being repeated....again I am sorry. I will be going back through notes, and having to do some things again. 

Thanks for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies today. Make sure to stop by the home page of LilacsNDreams...that is how all of this has started with blogging. See you again soon. Take Care.
