On the way home from receiving allergy shots this week, I stopped to browse at a thrift shop. It really was right on the way. It's on the same road I have to travel and it's actually IN my town. That can be dangerous at times.
I'm trying to be diligent about giving away things I no longer use so I won't feel guilty about bringing home a few treasures now and then. This was a good week for thrifting. I was happy to find three wicker cat beds which I've already washed and presented to the cats, who love them. One can never have too many cat beds for a tribe of felines.
Sometimes I wonder why people throw out or give away such nice things, but I guess if the items are not being used, that's the best thing to do. I probably need to do more of that myself.
