Thrifty Finds

We had a wonderful adventure this past weekend involving a little road trip, good food, good company and some great thrifty shopping. 

What could be better, right?

We got to visit this little shop and see all of this:

a Junker's haven!

At this same shop, we found some very

fancy recipes

in this vintage cookbook

(just look at chef on the cover – we’ve named him Fred
I think he highly recommends that potato salad!)

check out the corndogs beautifully displayed poked into a head of lettuce:
