I DO so love to wander around a thrift shop/Charity store. Yesterday I discovered the local Life Line had re-opened after being totally wiped out by the January floods. It was buzzing with people. I found an awesome leather bound book for just $3 that I am going to alter later. Don't know what an altered book is? see here ,also Google images, some are beyond beautiful.
I also picked a 1966 Barbie Doll in genuine Cow-girl outfit for a friend who collects them. for $3
A first Edition Harry Potter to add to my other two (to one day sell) for only $6
And as I was walking to the checkout I saw a little decorated wooden box. I opened it and suddenly beautiful music peeled out from it. A music box! turning it over to see the bottom...not just a music box, an ANTIQUE music box. It's a "Lucky Day" made in Switzerland. I don't know what the music is, but I have found the website of the manufacturer (couldn't believe they were still around) and so I emailed them about my little music box. Hopefully I'll get a reply.
Oh and it only cost me $3!
