Recently, someone I know online asked me if I had stopped thrifting. After I finished laughing, I assured her that yes, as long as I am breathing and have access to thrift stores, I'm still thrifting. I can't imagine it being otherwise. What I do seem to have stopped doing, however, is blogging about it. This hasn't been intentional--I just haven't though to do it. Due to being unusually busy, I have been thrifting less often than usual, and though my take is generally pretty OK, I haven't come home with anything so fantastic I felt the need to share it with the world in a while. But, since I was asked, and since this is pretty much my favorite subject, I thought I'd share the goods from my bins trip last night.
- Three new greeting cards with envelopes, all of which read "These are but wild whirling words"--William Shakespeare. $.25 for three
- Four plastic containers of Risk figurines, intended for Tiny Shiny Things jars, $.25 each
- A hand knitted red cotton strawberry baby hat, $.25
- A Panache appertif poster that is going to go in my bathroom, $.50
- Three bags of new rubber jacks cat toys, $.25 each.
- A small candle mold, $.25
- A large candle mold, $.75
- A package of three small red tins, $.25
- A Bamboo Utensil To-Go set like this, $.25
- A cool wooden tension toy/puzzle, $.25
Total with tax: $4.87
This represents what has become a very average trip for me. Nothing exceptional, but a few cute things, very little money spent, and very little new stuff that I don't have an intended use for coming into my house. I'm very happy with being in this stage of my thrifting career.
