Thrifting in Oblivion Austin Texas Syle Part 3 Goodwill and Hill Country

The outer limits of Austin are a true junking mecca.We came upon this roadside stand and couldnt believe the bargains for rusty metal.
This is how I ended up with a trunk of doilies. How could I pass this up as founder of the doily liberation front?
As we headed out of Austin, we checked out the groovy neighborhoods of East Austin, including the Habitat Restore and happened upon this new school Goodwill.
The place had the best housewares selection so far seen in the area, with a collection of vintage Johnson Brothers interspersed with Southwest and Mexican Pottery.

There was also a great collection of paintings, canvases to be repurposed, and frames.
