Most of you know, I love to thrift! I really and truly do.
Yesterday, I had some errands to run to prepare for Ladies Conference. While I was out, I happened to be near a Goodwill that I haven't been to in a very long while. It's small, and I figured I could swing in there and see if they had anything neat and then continue on my way.
Typically, I have a "pattern" for thrifting. I search certain sections FIRST (always) and then, wander to the miscellaneous items after I have searched jackets, dress, skirts, shoes, bags. However, yesterday, I did something weird. I went to the miscellaneous section first. The miscellaneous section (my term, not theirs) has everything from toys, to housewares, etc.
Well, I stumbled across a little set of pens. 24 different colored pens! PENS!!!! I have this thing for pens. I love them. I love to collect them. I love to draw with them. I love to doodle. I just like to LOOK at them. This set would have retailed for over $25, but I got it for $2.49!!
And my 2nd score from the miscellaneous section was a bit of a splurge, as I am not sure I have some place to put it....but it's a SEA TURTLE!!!! Bob Wright signed sea turtle print for $3.49. I googled him and a print this size would have retailed for $56! YAY!! Isn't it dreamy? I am going to find some place in my bedroom to put it. I also have an obsession with turtles, mostly sea turtles.
Admittedly, this is not a typical thrift store score or haul for me, but it made my day!
Do you like to thrift? What have you found lately that you just LOVE?
