More fun stuff this week! Saturday we drove up to Craig’s office, and I got to hit a couple stores that I don’t regularly visit. A little too far out of my normal range.
My first stop was Value Village. I mainly just looked at housewares and books. I got the three Nancy Drew books for $1.01 each. Don’t know what the penny is for.
One plaza over was Goodwill. I got three more Beverly Cleary books, this book from the American Girl Library, and Misty of Chincoteague, which I’ve never read but heard a lot of in homeschooling circles. These books were all $.30 each.
I also got a cute pair of Keds at GW for $3. I know some people are squeamish about buying second-hand shoes. It’s not a big deal to me, although I’m of course not going to buy ratty, worn out ones. These look barely worn, and I’ll give them a good spray-down with Lysol.
Today I stopped into my favorite thrift store, which is also the closest, and discovered that it was 25% off everything again. I asked about it, and found that every Wednesday is 25% off. Now I know.
I got this cute little accent lamp, which needs some minor repair on the shade, but I loved the fringe. Three pairs of Speedo goggles (the kids swim a lot during the summer), which I noticed sell for about $12/pr at Target. One book in the continuing story of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s family, by Roger Lea MacBride. Finally, an old silverplate fork (I couldn’t get a good close-up of it, but it’s a floral pattern). My total after the discount was $6.35.
I almost forgot these! You can read the story of my ironstone here. I’m kicking myself now, like I knew I would, and I went back to that GW to see if by chance, two months later, it was still there. I wasn’t expecting to find anything, but there were three salad plates left, $1/ea. So I guess I’ll have to build my collection slowly.
How about you? Show it off!
