What a thrifting trip that was! We started in Reidsville and went to the Salvation Army store and Goodwill. I found an Apple-branded cover for my iPad mini in there. It's light blue and I love it. At Salvation Army, I got some cards, a snowman pin, a wallet, a CD, a cheese grater, and two packs of those cute little animal cable protectors. We went from there to Wentworth NC and ate at a place called Mom's Kitchen. We were looking forward to it. It was not great. It was just.... I don't want to be mean, but it wasn't good. We won't be going back there. We went from there to the Mayodan Goodwill that we recently discovered and I found a few things there. A small Keurig k-cup holder (It fits under the little brewer in my room! LOL), a case (that will fit an external HD), a set of Tetris magnets, and a cute little Halloween ceramic thingee with a ghost, a tree, and little jack o lanterns. We went on to a 'new' Goodwill in Walkertown NC. I found a Sak bag exactly like the one I wanted at Myrtle that I bought on eBay. This one is the same bag but instead of being black, it's teal. I absolutely LOVE it. I got that, a bit metal jack o lantern, a S'well bottle with donut design, a purple zipper pouch, a box of Ticonderoga pencils, and a Homer Simpson shirt! I can't wear it, it's way too small, but I had to have it! Lol
We left there and were heading to the Goodwill in Eden but we ended up going right past the one in Mayodan. They are constantly putting stuff out there so we stopped back in. I found some stampers and a cute crab plush. I love crabs! He is red is so cute! We then went to the Goodwill in Eden and I found a DS game! They had quite a few, but there was one that I was pretty sure I'd love. It was Crafting Mama! I always adored the Cooking Mama games so I got this. It was still in the original case, too. That was $4. I was so happy to finally see some DS games and one I actually wanted! I'll try it later as I haven't been home long and I've been working on my writing. I'm too tired to do it justice tonight so I've just been editing.
After Eden, we headed to our last stop, Martinsville, VA, and to the Goodwill there. We ate again in Eden at a drive-up place. That was much better than our lunch! At the Martinsville Goodwill, I didn't find anything! That was okay because I had already spent plenty. I love all my finds. I'm so happy that I found that purse! I adore the black one so much and this is the same purse only in a cooler color. This once still has the Sak dangle thingee on it, too!
The CD I found in the Salvation Army in Reidsville is from the Vince Guaraldi Trio. It's all the music from the 1965 A Charlie Brown Christmas special I just happened to see it while I was in line and snatched it up! I've already ripped it to my MacBook Pro so I can enjoy it on here and on my iPod. I love the music from it.
I just looked up the cover I got for the iPad Mini. It sells new on the Apple store for $39.99! @[email protected]; I got it for $4.99. SCORE!!!! lol I am pretty sure this will also fit any iPad Mini so if I get a newer one, I should be able to use it with those too. :) It was a good thrifting trip. I'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow. I need to move everything off my bed so I can actually sleep in it tonight. Plus, I want to try Crafting Mama!
