Have you noticed

I am not sure if it is just me that has noticed this pattern or if anyone else has also seen a pattern at goodwill and local thrift stores. I swear there is a team on employees that must monitor blogs and Pinterest to see what the hottest trends and styles are because I have noticed several items going up in price. Has anyone else seen prices going up on certain items?

Vintage Antique Finds

Who doesn’t like going to the thrift stores and goodwills. I haven’t been in a long time but now that it is getting dark later I can take some time to go get some goodies and come right home to paint them. If I go in the winter I can’t paint or create my items due to the cold and my shed is freezing lol we had a heater but it stopped working last year.

Plus the paints tend to freeze when I spray them on and it looks horrible.
So I am looking forward to summer yard sales and thrift stores shopping.’usually in the summer I add items to my shop almost daily.
Check out the current items I have in my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78
U will also want to like my Facebook page so u keep up on the latest at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl

Goodwill and thrift store shopping

I just needed to get some feedback from my followers. Is it just me or are prices for certain items going up in price at thrift stores and goodwills.

I don’t know about you but I believe there is someone that works for goodwill or the thrift stores that watch blogs, etsy shops etc to see what vintage items are selling for and they increase there prices.

Please let me know if you have seen the same things happening in your areas. Example I use to be able to find milk glass for a lot cheaper now it is still a deal but I seem prices from $6-$28 in the goodwill some even chipped or broken.
