Skirt hangers are very good for hanging papers and displaying artwork, under a dollar at the thrift store. I print most of my art from images online. Frames are one of the best thrift purchases. There is a huge selection, all different sizes, and very cheap. This shadow box was $3. It was already white but frames are one of the easiest things to paint.

For my second trip to Mile High this summer, I got a blissful few hours of solitude and a selection of fun finds. A few more wooden hangers for the closet. $2. Some day I will have enough to get rid of the plastic ones.
A dollar fan. How to bring joy to a 6 year old in two seconds flat.
$1 for this set of stamps. Still in the $16 packaging. Endlessly useful for school and creative activities.
Keens, always the keens. Little ones for the little one. $4.
We have been on the lookout for trains. The 4 year old turns five soon and this will be his gift. This box is huge! And very full of train building fun for years to come. $20.
And 3 vintage Fisher Price play stages. I had these. I loved these! $13. The car elevator still goes up and the school bell still rings. Now I’m in the market for the little cars and people.

I didn’t buy anything today at the thrift shop. And have you noticed that when you are looking for something you never find it?
Here is an awesome paddle ball set. I love the graphics. $6.
I might regret not buying these foxes. They were cute and clean and what a lot of work someone did!

I completely love this needlework pattern. Though this embroidery piece is from the 1970s and seems to be quite common, (I’ve found two of these bonsai beauties), the colors are vibrant and the little tree is perky and pretty, especially in this wooden frame. I’ve hung two bonsai on my gallery wall, but this one is for sale.
Here are my bonsai:
