Thrift Store Finds!

Glad your here!

So we just had a few storms come through Northern California. Today was a beautiful day so my hubby stayed home today to help do some storm repairs. We had a window that liked to turn itself in to a waterfall and a gutter that was not completely cleaned out.

After we did out work of course….. We spend the afternoon going to the 2 thrift stores here in our town. My daughter looks for clothes, hubby movies, and me book, clothes and chicken stuff. My son just went along to laugh at us I think…

I didn’t buy it because I have no place to put it but they had a John F Kennedy tapestry. 1965 from Italy. Cool in my humble opinion. Maybe I should  go back tomorrow.. $20 bucks what do you think?

Love hunting books at thrift stores. They are not new releases but I almost always find an interesting one. This is a great place to find old cook books one of my favorite types and even do it yourself books.

I did get the Elizabeth Taylor book. For $3 it was a deal….. I love biographies on the stars who from the golden age of movies..

I DID NOT get the David Hasselhoff book…… I loved Knight Rider when I had a HUGE crush on him…  and I did watch Baywatch but……..I was cracking up in the book isle….

You have to hunt for good quality clothing at thrift stores but its worth it. Here is my daughter hiding in the racks… We found 2 shirts for .50 cents each and a sweatshirt for $2. Here is a tip…. ALWAYS wash the items before you wear them…. ICK!!!

SCORE!!!!! Found this handmade chicken purse for $8 brand new. Yes I will be using it too. It’s how I torment the family…. I’m cool like that….

Found a few movies too. We tend to watch movies and binge watch TV shows we like. Hubby is addicted to DVD’s but I found the Oceans Eleven set and the Audrey Hepburn set… I love old movies where you had to have real talent to become a star….. These were a bit more than we normally pay at $6 each but hey we were having a bit of fun…

So money-saving tip of the week… Take time to check out your local thrift stores. The 2 we have here are independent ones. One called Field Haven is a rescue organization for cats. We frequently donate to them. The other has been here forever and is privately owned. The prices are a little high for a thrift store but I do find deals when I hunt. Do some good and donate to those that help the community by donating items and purchasing that hard to find item.

Glad you are here!
