… spent with #1 son. He took the day off from renovating and I took the day off from… well, whatever it is I do around here. It was cloudy, but didn’t rain. Pretty muggy before the day was over – but I had to wear a sweater inside everywhere we went.
We headed to Scottsboro, AL – a town about 40 minutes from where I live. The home of Unclaimed Baggage (you can read about Unclaimed Baggage in a brief post from 2019).. a multitude of thrift shops and a lovely large place called “Patches”. They call themselves an emporium with a “unique spin” on consignment and resale. And they have just about everything: clothes, antiques, home decor, furniture, crafts and ‘stuff”. There are 125 vendors in 26,000 square feet, so it took awhile there.
I came away with a couple of pairs of ear-rings (hard to pass those up), a cute long sleeved top, and of course some frames – one can never have too many frames.
You can read about our lunch stop in next week’s post.
I was sad looking through the frames. I found a couple of really sweet cross stitch items that obviously someone had done with love and time. It made me sad that someone had spent so much time on an item and there it was in a thrift store. Hopefully someone will find it and give it some love.
