Summer of 2020 is rolling along, and I’m still waiting for the warm weather where I live. I know a lot of you have been sweltering for weeks, but I’m still wearing a sweater. It’s been a strange year in so many ways. I miss the little things—breakfast out, going to movies, sitting in a coffeeshop reading a book, and snooping around the thrift stores and yard sales.
I was shopping at thrift stores long before it became fashionable. In the early years, it was by necessity. The only way I could afford anything was if it was secondhand. But I love the variety. You can find things you can’t find anywhere else. It’s true what they say, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” There is truly something for everyone.
I’m always amazed and thrilled by my finds. Here are a few of my favorites:
#1 Alex and Ani bracelets for under $10 for all three.
#2 Fun owl china mug for $3.99
#3 Sterling Silver ring for $7.99
I used to go twice a week before the covid-19 shutdown. Most of the time I walk away with nothing, but sometimes, you find something truly special. For me, it’s like beachcombing. The fun is in the hunt.
Do you have anything fun and unusual you like to do?
And if you’re looking for a book to read and enjoy sci-fi romance with a sexy assassin, you might want to check out Spear’s Search, the first book in my Assassins of Gravas series just released.
Assassins of Gravas, Book 1
Spear el Gravaso—prince of Gravas and assassin—is on a mission to find his brother. His hunt had led him to an auction of Gravasian weapons that can only belong to the missing man. He needs to secure the items, get any information he can, and kill all those involved. Nothing and no one will stop him.
Sass was taken from a harsh life on the streets as a child and trained to be an assassin by the powerful Artemis. The lives of those she loves is on the line if she fails her mission—to win the auction of Gravasian tech. Only one problem—Spear is in her way.
Their battle escalates, as does the explosive heat between them. When it comes down to it, they can fight each other and one of them will die or they can join forces. But can they trust each other?

When I was traveling I used to collect earrings that reflected something about the culture of the area.
That’s a wonderful thing to collect, Anna. Let’s you remember all your adventures.
Thanks for having me as a guest on your blog, Delilah. 🙂
And it was a lot of fun too. Here’s to a time of Post COVID-19 recovery when I can begin again.
Lovely post and great items! I collect kitchen gadgets. I have a drawer-full. Stuff I may use once or save for that rainy day when I need to create carrot curls! Best of luck with the book. Nicole
Hunting for treasure in flea markets and garage sales is the best!!!! Love your finds!
