I've always known when it comes to shopping yard sales and garage sales the earlier you go the better; as the good items sell first. Well, I now know this is true too for thrift stores.
With a few extra minutes on my hands I stopped by a local thrift store one morning and found this cabinet just waiting for me! It was in new condition with shelves on the inside; which I plan to use for holding our piano music.
When I looked at the price tag I was amazed it was marked only $9.98.
During warm weather, when we run errands, we like to bring a small ice chest to carry drinks. And this year we will be using a vintage ice chest! It's called Alpine and makes me think of summer camping.
The style reminds me of a picnic basket.
It has aluminum handles;
And a lid that completely detaches.
There is plenty of space inside for our drinks, such as tea and lemon-aid, and enough space to hold sandwiches on the days we want to take our lunch with us.
I'm so pleased with my vintage ice chest. Are you curious what I paid? It was marked $7.50 but was half off! I would have been willing to pay the regular price for such a fun ice chest :o)
