Thrift Store Crafting

I have been thinking about ways to increase
sales in the Thrift Store.

What about making a craft in the store
from things in found in the store?

I think it will work.

So this Friday I will be making book page
wreaths in the store for shoppers to watch me
and learn OR they can purchase the
finished product!!

I have also taken a lot of assorted frames
and candle holders and painted them
red to use in a Valentine display.

I'll let you know what happens!


  1. That sounds like a great idea. I know that many people are now looking for inexpensive ways to decorate their homes.

  2. Great idea Donna! I made one with sheet music and it turned out pretty good for my first try.

    I might have to stop by for a lesson.


  3. Oh, you're the clever and crafty one,
    Donna! Yes, let us know how it goes.
    Sounds like a great idea.

  4. sounds like fun and a good idea

  5. I made ten of these for christmas last year. I think it is a good idea and they will sell.

  6. Sounds fun! Wish I was closer, I would love to come. Love & blessings from NC!

  7. Oh how creative! I am sure both crafters and the buyers of crafts will be there. May God truly bless your endeavor.

  8. That is a great idea!
    Hope it goes well.
    Have a great evening!

  9. I love this ! I can see some many possibilities with this kind of craft.

  10. That sounds wonderful! I am not sure I could work in a thrift store...most of the things would wind up coming home with ME!! I went to "Once Upon a Child" yesterday and did some amazing purchasing...just in case we are blessed enough to adopt a little girl some day!
    Blessings! Beth
