Oops. I thrifted again.
I hadn’t planned to do any thrifting on our weekend visiting family, but I couldn’t help a small detour into a new secondhand shop. I picked up just a few things, including another rolling pin. I might need help. But, today is National Thrift Shop Day, so really, I was just being patriotic. Excuses for the win.
