My very best ever thrift store find and some hints of Autumn here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air!
I have been doing some thrifting and decorating. I happen to mosey on in the local Goodwill store and scanned the whole store as I usually do , when I reached the furniture my curiosity kicked in when I saw this white metal object but the front side was backed up against a dresser. So here I am moving all the furniture around to get to the front of it. My heart nearly stopped, and I am not kidding about that. A very old metal ice box....I had been wanting one forever for décor. So I actually whistled for Mr. Sweet Tea N' Salty Air to come quickly. They know me over at Goodwill its a matter of fact I have made some very good friends there, very nice people. So at that time I had not known too many things about ice boxes and there was no tag on it so we hailed down the manager and he said 49.99 and I said I'll take it. Now Mr. S.T.N.S.A. is like ..Oh my god what is she buying now! So I took him and explained that it was an antique and that it would be a great investment even though I had no Idea what the value was at all. I just wanted to get it home and deck him out for fall in my kitchen. You know how excited a kid is on Christmas ? Well that was me. Ok so its storming outside and Mr. S.T.N.S.A. says we have to come back and get it tomorrow, H e double toothpicks with that! He was going home with me right then and there. Mr. S. knows that when I get something in my head I don't change my mind so first we tried to squeeze it in the back seat, silly us it just wouldn't fit so I had my daughter come with the truck, The store was closing so I had to wait on the curbside for her in the storm. I do do some silly stuff if I have to. She came and got it lucky me!
