falling off the wagon (flea market finds)


I started this year with the plan to give more to the op shops than I bought. For a while there, I was doing brilliantly, but somehow, op shops seem to pop up close to many of the places I visit, and, well, I've fallen off the wagon...

I even bought the wagon!


(this is NOT everything I've bought lately, just a representative sample...)

I guess I'd better start decluttering again!

Visit Sophie for some lovely finds...

I love your purchases and your play on words. I can completely relate. I have a thrift shopping addiction. I get so excited about what I might find and actually think, "what did I miss out on today. . . " if I don't make a stop at a thrift shop. Again, brilliant play on words!

hay honey, better fall off that wagon! if you've brought stuff back altready, then you have plenty of space left, no? hear me! i've got too many boxes full of vintage stuff, on top of all the unwrapped removal boxes. woe-hie!!!

Excellent haul, and don't worry about falling off the wagon ... it's very low to the ground! And besides, it all evens out in the end!

That little wagon is too cute ... and that fabric looks interesting.

I think you have a duty to secure these items because you see the worth in them.

Discard the guilt!

I can never stay on my own wagon either so have decided the addiction wins,
You may want to glue that yellow handle to your wagon unless you are lucky that it doesnt come off every few minutes like the one I got for Mr 2 who wants us to attach it back constantly thinking it may be back at opshop soon lol

hehe and what a wagon it is!!!
Wagons are made to be fallen off.
That didn't work really. My last sentence but not this one. OH dear

Oh I've given up even trying to stay on the wagon. Nope, too much good old stuff out there to ignore it!

Bumping up and down in your little red wagon! I've fallen off the wagon too. I agree - it's difficult.

how could you resist a wagon?

I have become more selective in my op-shopping I must say, but I still need to de-clutter every once in awhile to make room for more thrifted finds! Having a two year old helps. When he breaks a vase or a bowl I have an excuse to hunt for a replacement. :)
