Thrift store finds

I am very fortunate to live in a town with 6 nice thrift stores. But because of the awful recent weather, my work schedule and a cold that slowed me down for 2 weeks, I did not go at all during January.
DH Jeff and I went to 2 thrift stores on Saturday and DS Jimmy and I went to the one closest to his little college apartment yesterday. We did not get tons of stuff but did find a few treasures.
I got the nice salmon cotton blouse for $3. The fabric is a good size yardage of pink and white cotton and the white has little blue strawberries on it, I think I will sew it into some kitchen towels.
The set of 10 month towels were just $1.50. January and February are missing, the other are all brand new except December has been laundered. I think they will be fun to add to seasonal decorations. I like them all except the ghosts on October.
I saw the Pottery Barn Kids pillow sham trimmed with rick rack there before Christmas and I liked but I left it thinking someone with a young daughter would want it, but it was still there a more than a month later so I bought it.

Jimmy also bought a nice Calvin and Hobbes book.

Jimmy has always liked to go junking as much as me. Jeff has tolerated it but since he found himself a tan suede sports coat this fall, now he likes to go, but still not as much as I do.
