thrifting treasures


I really love getting the jar’s of broken jewelry, or better yet, loose beads from Value Village in Saskatoon.  The store in Prince Albert uses small rose bowls and fills them with plastic junk.  Very disappointing.

I got two jars of loose beads. One for $9.99, and the other for $12.99.

I like looking through the glass trying to see what’s there before carefully emptying carefully with a scoop, sorting as I go.
