My great find today at a local thrift store



Well here in Wisconsin it got up to 40 today so Kevin & I decided to take a walk. Gotta get out after being cooped up with temperatures below 0. Up the block is a resale shop and as we were walking thru it my dh looks up and says isn't that the kind of thing you were looking for ? And there high up on the top shelf was a retail spinner that would work perfect to use as a clip up system.......best part it was 75% off so I walked out of the store with it for only $2.25.

You can imagine all the fun I had loading it up course I did run out of clips but I have more ordered so not a problem. I'm one of those crafters that have to see what I have.......you know what they say......out of sight...out of mind plus I do love my organization.
3 sections have room for long items and the other 3 sections have 2 spaces to hang shorter items. I have 75 clips on here and it's not even half way full. Best part is when I start scrapping all I have to do is spin it to what I am looking for....flowers, bday embellishments, bling etc. I am so happy with my latest find and I owe it all to my husband!

Good job on the shopping!
It was warm here (45ish) so a great turnout for the local winter festival - we were out walking and window shopping too! The only stores we went into were the LSS and a new bike store. We went to the bed races on the creek - I was a tad worried about the melting ice!
