Between the church sale and a couple of yard sales, Duane also bought a number of other items. A wicker tee-pee/bed for her cat, Jasmine, a mint condition set of matching bathroom items (soap dish, lotion dispenser, toothbrush holder, etc.) and a pair of nice wood shelves complete with plate grooves that she plans to paint comprised the rest of Duane's finds.
We finished hitting the church and yard sales early enough that we decided to stop in at Susan Gott's studio Phoenix Glass. We've shopped there before and Susan was having a 'make your own glass item' day along with refreshments and a little Halloween decor. Check out her website if you've never seen her work before. Beautiful things. She does have some items available for purchase there, too. We all bought gift items so, sadly, we can't show them in the picture. That shopping bag you see that says 'American Craft Council Show' was one of our bags from her shop/studio. Susan is a very nice and warm person and welcomes you as you come into her shop. She's going to be participating in the 'Shop Small' business Saturday after Thanksgiving with some great deals so we plan to go back then.
After our haul from Phoenix Glass, we hit the coffee shop for our usual treats and had a nice long gab. It's always fun to see what we end up with on these outings.
