Born to Thrift ~ A letter about my beginnings

My Mom recently told me about how she had been reading through a box of letters that she found at my Grandparents house when they passed away.  She had written the letters to my Grandma when I was about Ruby's age (2). It's pretty funny because my Mom had taken me to thrift stores and flea markets at that age, just like I do with Ruby.  I hadn't realized that I started living the Salvage Life so early on.  In this letter I got a dress for 50 cents and a top for 10 cents!  I guess that was before "old" things were such hot commodities.  I acquired some beautiful things at the flea market yesterday, I will share some photos tomorrow, have a nice Monday!

That is cool to have some old letters like that! I was thrifting when my kids were babies as well. Great memories and great deals for the kiddos!
