During my lunch break last week I stopped at one of the many many thrift stores that I have had my eye on. (One benefit of driving 45 min. into town everyday for work is that you find all sorts of stores you never knew existed!) I especially like this store The Attic because all of the proceeds go to a homeless shelter for women and children.
And of course I found something that I just fell in love with and HAD to buy because I NEEDED it. This old radio/record player from the 50's that actually WORKS. I also knew that Jed would let me buy it because he too thinks we NEED a record player.
We were so excited to get it home on Saturday (thanks dad for hauling it!) that we spent that whole night refinishing it. Jed even went with me to the fabric store, which he hates to do.
