thrifting finds.

Sometime last week, the whole family hit the thrift stores downtown together. I found some great things that I had been looking for, and thought I'd share...

Huge Canning Pot, with canning rack. I can use this to sterilize my yogurt jars AND do some canning this fall...which I have never done on my own, and have been wanting to do. $3.50

The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck (which I've wanted to read since High School) $1.50

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. (Mr. Gardner found this one) $.50

Gardening Hat (for growing all those veggies that I'm going to can...) $1.50

Metal Strainer (I've been wanting a metal one) $1.50

Vintage Potholder $.60

Total $9.10

I love thrifting.


  1. A canning pot for 3.50? What a great find! I've been scouring craigslist for canning supplies.

  2. Yeah, I was pretty excited. I've been looking for a while! We'll see how the whole canning thing goes this fall...
    ; )

  3. When all else fails, freeze 'em:)

  4. Hi Jen!

    I read The Good Earth recently. It was... interesting, and frustrating, and kinda depressing, but overall a good window into a time & place I knew little about.
