First of all, Happy Halloween! I’ll be partying all day at the day program I work at and then handing out candy to the kids in our neighborhood tonight. I’m actually excited because this is the first year I’ll actually live somewhere where I can pass out candy to the Trick-or-Treaters, so I’m looking forward to that. What are your Halloween plans?
I’ve been super busy this week trying to finish up my Halloween costume in my free time and prepare for our party this Friday. I also decided to sell at the Halcyon craft fair next weekend, which was a last-minute decision but I think it might be a good way to make a little extra money for Christmas presents. My mom is making some things to sell and I’m going to throw in some vintage stuff so I don’t get stressed out trying to make a bunch of stuff to fill the booth. If you’re curious, here are my posts from the last couple times I sold at this fair: one, two.
Since I didn’t end up posting a Thrifty Thursday last week, this post features my last two weeks of finds (well, most of them- I forgot to take pictures of a few things). We’ve still been going to estate and yard sales on Saturday mornings and finding tons of great stuff, so as a result we haven’t been hitting the thrifts quite as often as we used to. Anyway, on to our finds:
All of these vintage Christmas ornaments are from yet another yard sale. They didn’t have much else worth buying, but we sure found a lot of great Christmas stuff! It’s all headed for the antique space in a month or so, and I might try to sell some at the craft fair next weekend to round out my handmade items.
