Cool! Is it because you had less time? Maybe they can be thrifters one day! 😎

Yeah time is an issue and I've found that thrifting you aren't guaranteed to find what you're looking for. When I'm with the kiddos it's pretty much get in, grab what you need and get out

They're getting older so maybe we can start again soon 😊

Maybe! It would probably be fun for them! I took my little brother and he liked it!

I shop at thrift stores pretty often. And sometimes flea markets. Sometimes they're fun to just walk around and look at stuff, even if I don't find anything I want to buy.

I'm the same way. I've never been to a flea market though.
I love seeing the vintage furniture!

The flea markets here are really fun. They're all indoors, each with a lot of stalls for individual sellers (who aren't usually present). Some specialize in certain kinds of merchandise, some have a broad mixture. You just never know what you'll find

which is also true for thrift stores, but somehow it's a bit more of an adventure at a flea market.

I feel like it is. I've never been because I get scared of how packed the parking lot is. I feel like the atmosphere would be really exciting!

No, but I wanted to today. I wanted a frame so I could male a framed chalkboard for my kitchen. Instead I went to Ikea and bought something for $20.

Oooh I like that idea making a chalkboard! I was looking at furniture and got excited at its possibilities!

IKEA is fun though aha

We had a blank wall and I was inspired. After the frame, I spent $6 at Home Depot for spray paint and wall hooks. It looks great, but I can't write on it for 24 hours!! You should totally do it, find a good thrift store frame.

I might do that one day! Thanks for the idea!

I went creative for my bedroom, and love doing cool stuff! I made a bookshelf from crates, a chair from a shopping card, and other little stuff!
