Sometimes it's easy.....

sometimes it isn't...Thrifting that is!

I need a few things for the new house. I don't have a 'set' thing in mind. As big as a small drop leaf to as small as a large side table or dressing table. Could even be a low dresser. Just something for an empty space in the living room.

I searched Goodwill and they had a lovely OLD desk, that needed some work and PAINT, but they wanted 99 dollars and that is out of my current budget. I found a cute dresser at the Stuff Store, but it was wrong for the space and not much cheaper. Found a cheap low table for cheap that didn't make me LOVE it. I would have bought it, scraped off the ugly decopage, repainted and still felt the need to replace it...so I left it alone.

I even went to the next Goodwill over a town and nothing! Sometimes it is just easier than others!

Hey fellow Ramsey-ite. I found you after you posted on "It's Lovely . . ."
I'm in the same focused pay everything off mode. We have the house yet to go -- if we continue making the mortgage it will be paid off in 10 years. Hubs and I have decided to buckle down and do it in 3. Rice and beans, beans and rice.
Concerning your current problem -- I would not get too discouraged right now. It's the wrong time of the year for the good stuff to appear. This spring when people clean out their garages -- have garage sales, etc. that's when we will find those "just right" items. Hang in there now.

Have you tried searching on Craigslist or signing up on freecycle.com? I'm sure you'll find something for your darling new home there :)
BTW, I have enjoyed reading you blog!
