Our Secondhand Shopping Bargains
We've certainly been blessed these last couple of weeks shopping. Our purchases include:
- a green table with 2 plastic chairs for our children's playroom- it even has pencil holders!
-an unusual percussion instrument
-several skirts & blouses for me- all good quality & nice brands.
-2 pink sweaters- one for each of the girls
-2 lovely dresses for Talitha
-a 1970's grater
-a magazine rack
- 2 of the Katie books by Susan M. Coolidge
& 2 lovely matching vintage red & white aprons (complete with white "Leave it to Beaver" frills), for Talitha & I.
I love secondhand shopping. As a Christian, I believe it's good stewardship ( eg. less money spent on clothes, leaves extra for more important things like Christian schooling or hospitality.) And always remember, when you op-shop it's nice to know the money is supporting Christian charities & not the multi-nationals!!
