Do you have a space in your garden that needs an overhaul?

Want to add a pop of color?

Thrift with Me Southeastern Michigan

How are the thrift stores near you?  Near me (Southeastern Michigan) the thrift stores have been pricey and the shelves have been bare.  This has not been a new problem, the thrift stores have been like this for over a year. My daughter recently asked me to stop at a local thrift store to look and I reluctantly agreed.
