My favorite 2nd hand stores are the Mission. There is one in East Peoria, One over on Stearling and one over on knoxville. They r extremely reasonable and always have awsome things for crafts and refurbishing. I also like the goodwills. I'm not so hot about the salvation army. I'm handicapped, and I have a hard time getting in their doors.
Also would be interested in your next get together, hornlinechick. Goldie
