Yeah, there were absolutely no plans to thrift today. My friend has been saying he'd put new tires on Goontz since we've driven it so much and it was needed new tires when he got it. He took it today and got tires. He then wanted me to drive it to see how it felt with the new tires. That was nice. I switched spots with him and we went by Wendy's for me to grab a bite to eat as it was past my lunchtime. After that, we went to Cookout so he could get a shake. He mentioned drying on the highway and said something about Eden, NC. I said, how about Martinsville instead. That is what we did. We went to the Goodwill in Martinsville and the one in Bassett (just up the road about 10 minutes). At the first GW, I found some Avery address labels new in the package, three packs of business card binder pages, (I use these for my Starbucks cards), a purple binder with some divider inserts already in there, a cute little canvas bag, and a plastic kitchen spoon! That was a nice little haul. We went to the Bassett one and I found a pair of Dr. Martens in my size that looked almost brand new. They were $40 and I didn't have that much, so my friend got them and I'm going to pay him back $10 a month for the next four months. Cool! They are pretty cool, they are a bit shiny and look either purple or burgundy. Just depends on the lighting. They are very cool and I've never had a pair of Docs. Here they are:
Cool, yes? My size, in great condition for a good price, and they are comfy! I was very pleased to get them. The only other thing I found in there was a puzzle. I got it for .69¢. I really need to start working on puzzles again! While we were out, we went by the car wash and washed Goontz. Later, we took it by another car wash and I vacuumed it well. My Goontz has new tires, is clean inside and out and I'm pleased! ^_^
Here is the cute little bag. It has blueberries on it! It has a tag that says, "Stonewall Kitchen" in it. I just thought it adorable and had to have it. It rang up a whole .99¢!
Impromptu thrift trips are fun! In other news, my set of Styluses that I ordered from Amazon came today. I also received my order from eBay of two DS games. One is Scribblenauts and one is an Adventure Time game! YAY! The AT game is, "Hey Ice King! Why Did You Steal Our Garbage??!" :p
