mourning...

grieving...feeling sad for...

i have this problem, i like to go to thrift stores and it wouldn't really be a problem at all, except that sometimes i find fantastic things there, and it is so amazing that i look around as i put it in my cart and say "man...it must be like kismet or something...it's truly my day today!" yesterday at saver's was not my day (although i did find a leap frog leap pad for $1.99)....

there was this table.

and that seems to be what i am unconsciously mourning. this tourquoise, beautiful, old but in REALLY good shape table. pretty big, it came with five chairs, all in good shape and a SOLD sticker on it.

somethings just don't leave me for whatever reason...like when i saw the set of three tall light yellow lockers in Saver's that inspired my months long search of lockers which now happily reside in my house...one wonders if such a table, or anything like it would exist somewhere else for me to buy...probably not for $69.99 though.

Jen that is so funny, we went to Saver's the other day and I noticed that same table! It really was cute. That was on Monday so maybe the person who bought it isn't coming back for it! You might still have a chance at it :).

I feel your pain! I am absolutely addicted to the German thrift store that is 5 minutes from my house.. it seems like every time I leave.. I can't stop thinking about something there.. and then worry for a few days that it will be gone.. and then finally go back - most of the time lucky it is still there! I am the same way! I love a good deal.. but cannot stop thinking about these antique keys... how silly :) I hope they are there on MOnday
