Im looking for great vintage furniture now. Craigslist is slightly helping, but I want more. The only store that really seems to have anything with sort of okay prices is Opportunity Village right now. Does anyone have any leads here?

Havent posted in forever. I work at the library, used to teach (never again). I havent really crafted in forever. I have pretty much moved focus on buying and selling clothes and blogging(besides working).

yep, about 20 cents  of the yarn (if even that much) and about 4 minutes of my time. although I did put it on wrong, I noticed after a good look at the orginals, but oh well.

You guys might have seen these pics floating on the internet

so I decided to crochet myself one (or two)

I don't even want to guess how much they were charging for them originally

so I kind of started this little blog about the things Im finding here in Vegas. www.thrifteye.blogspot.com

its chronicling (sp?) the things i have already found, and the things I continue to find here. I seriously hit the search about three times a week. I rotate between Deseret Industries, Opportunity Village, Savers, and the other small thrift stores (I just found a great one in North town). Then I save weekends for the outdoor swapmeet. Albeit its getting excruitatingly hot to go there now.

So I heard the word is that a new store is opening up in downtown. Right behind the artists lofts on Casino Center, right where all the FF stuff happens. Its going to be a record store, that sells all kinds of musical goodies. Its supposed to be fixed up really nice, and I think they will slowly start selling clothes there too. The last I heard, its supposed to be open on the August First Friday. Finally, a new chill spot!

I know I need to start getting my butt into crafting again, but since they hired me as a full time substitute I dont have time for anything, not even sleep it seems. So my track break is coming up in a few days, and Imma go to Mexico. Finally, a real trip! I used to hate it when people would say "But you go to Vegas all the time", it totally doesnt count as a vacation.

cool, I'll try. That way I can save it as a reference when I need to give someone directions. The ones in Las Vegas arent so much as great as when I used to live in California. In LV theyre really messy and picked over for some odd reason.

Hey Folks,

I've created a blog about the things I have been finding for the past few years through thrifting. It should be a mix of household wares, gadgets, toys, clothes, art, furniture, etc...and it is an ongoing process for me. I am an avid thrift store, swapmeet, flea market, dumpster diving afficionado Smiley So I figured I could make something like this to share my finds. The only struggle is finding time to take pictures in between teaching. There are only two posts up, but there should be a lot of cool things to come very soon!


I figured a blog should do for right now, and I can work on the html specs later. Im so excited to finally share. Theres a few things I never get a chance to show to people in person, only through word of mouth, when I can barely even remember to say anything.

we've been painting and moving stuff around so much that I havent had a chance to take a picture of my new five gallon tank. I like it so much because its vertical, I sorta dislike them when theyre long sideways. Still need to upgrade on the decorating. He has a heater now and that makes him so much happier. Except I had to take the filter out because the girl who sold it to me at fish aquarium store was as clueless as me I guess. She sold me a bottom filter and it cause all kinds of crazy bubbles, he didnt really like it. cause he couldnt make his own bubbles, and totally hasnt since being in the new place. And on top of that it didnt even work, it had these little carbon thingies and after a few days it'd just get clouded all over again. So I decided to just take it out and use it for some other fish some other time. Now Im going to have to go through some websites all over again to look for proper betta filtration, something quiet cause that one I had was super noisy too.

I really love the coral in the pictures. A++++
