Frugality meets art

This week, I got two extraordinary finds at the thrift store. One is a painting an 80-year old couple donated it to City Thrift on Penn Street. They had bought it on their honeymoon, who knows how long ago, and finally decided to part with it and it's identical counterpart, which had previously been sold. Last time I walked in to the store I had considered buying it, but this time I decided to just splurge. It's almost 3' by 2.5' and I stole it for $20.

Here she is:
Unfortunately, I currently do not have a camera other than the one on my phone, so I apologize for the poor quality. I will be getting a camera in the next couple months. Then when I make a habit of posting my thrift finds, it will be slightly more pleasant to view. My apologies.

It's hard to tell, but the painting is amazing! I LOVE it, even though I have no place for it in my apartment...yet. I will find somewhere.

The second find of the trip was a blue Nalgene water bottle. My roommate lost hers a week or so again, so I found this one in good condition and picked it up for a buck.

In the end, total trip cost: $21. Not bad.
