One of my favourite things to do is visit thrift stores. After shopping at thrift stores, I rarely ever buy anything new anymore.
I'd been looking for a hand towel for our small powder room. The big linen stores want up to $25 for a single "luxury" hand towel. Before my cleaning splurge this summer, I needed more cleaning rags and bought a big bag of old towels/face cloths for $2.99. When I got home and opened the bag - Hidden inside was a perfectly good, clean, stain-free, "luxury" hand towel - perfect for my powder room!
