I found this retro mint condition drum lamp shade for $1 at my favorite thrift shop. Always looking for that hidden treasure, especially when I travel to the mainland. You don't have to be a native of any area to find great places to thrift shop. There's a great little search engine at TheThriftShopper.com. Simply put in the name of the town and state OR zip code and it'll tell you where to go. How easy is that?
P.S. If you know of a charity or thrift shop that's not in the directory, why not pass along the info to the website so everyone can benefit? Good karma will thank you!
