I love our local thrift stores. There's three within a few miles of each other and when I have the time and am by myself, I have been known to hit all three in one day. This was true the other day when My Marine took the girls for the morning so mommy could have a little break.
And my hunting found some GREAT deals!
A set of embroidery hoops that I can use for some upcoming crafts I have in mind. TOTAL - $1
A set of 6 coffee mugs from World Market. I just LOVE the polka dot pattern and these are no longer available through World Market. So fun! TOTAL - .49/each!
I've also been wanting new dishes, but didn't want to pay full price for them. So I was thrilled when I found this set of Crate and Barrel dishes - set of 8 dinner plates and set of 8 dessert plates. TOTAL - $4
Two sets of Lakeshore wooden puzzles - Opposites and Big and Little. The best thing about these was that even though they were exactly the same, the prices on them were different. One was .99 and the other was marked $1.99. I brought that to the cashier's attention and she gave me the lower price for the 2nd one. Score! TOTAL - $.99/ea.
An almost complete set of Junie B. Jones books. There's a few titles missing, but those I can add using my credits from Paperback Swap. (If you don't know about Paperback Swap, click on my link and check it out! It's AWESOME! If you choose to sign up, please feel free to use me as a referral - booklover1212) - TOTAL $2.00
And my biggest find was this magnetic board/game from HABA. I did a little research and found that on Amazon, it's retailing new between $38/$31. I got it for $1.99!!! I'll be saving this and the puzzles for Nudgie for Christmas.
I also picked up 3 pairs of my favorite Old Navy jeans for $1/ea. Didn't get photos of those.
I just LOVE thrifting! It's like going on a treasure hunt! So....do you thrift? And if so, what's the best deal you've found?
