Last Week's Bargains

My thrifting buddy, Ginger, and I went thrifting last week.  First it was to the Habitat for Humanity Resale shop. We managed to find a handful of items but were forced to put down our goods due to an extremely s....l....o....w cashier and no air conditioner.  I don't see us going back there anytime soon.

Our next stop was to the Goodwill in the same part of town.  We both found some clothing items but the best part was Ginger losing her cool with the cashier.  The cashier chose unwisely to stop her transaction and have a lengthy conversation with another employee who strolled up after we had already waited.  Ginger received many an apology after she made it clear how rude the cashier had been for making us wait.

Our shopping ended at Faith Rescue Mission where Ginger found me an adorable metal airplane for Charlie's room. 

Here's what I came home with: a dress shirt for Charlie, a sweater, blouse, and hoodie for me, and the metal airplane.  I spent $12, not the best prices compared to yard sales but I got out of the house for an afternoon with a friend.

Chuck and I went to some yard sales this past weekend while we were out of town.  It wasn't good.  I found this red votive and vintage Christmas balls for 50 cents.  That's it. Hopefully this Saturday will be more satisfying.
