So, I promised to do a thrift finds update today and here it is! I took a picture of everything I got to share and a few individual things too. Here is the entire haul:
From top left to right on each row: Sherpani purse, Fossil purse, Uniden scanner/weather radio, Eton emergency radio, (will go into detail further down), a Starbucks mug with lid, two Starbucks tumblers, five vintage Whitman brand card games, and finally season two of the Simpsons! They also had season one, but I already have it. Fun finds. Here are some closer shots of three of the items:
This is my second Sherpani bag. I got one exactly like this in green with a different picture on the front in the Spring at another Greensboro Goodwill! I used it as a beach bag on my last beach trip and I loved it. I saw this and saw it was the same brand and the same purse so I got it. The only difference is that this one still has the safety pin tag and my other one was missing it. The Starbucks things are self-explanatory! :p
The Eton radio was a great find! It has a crank for when you don't have power, it's also able to be charged with solar or by a USB cord and your computer. It's got AM/FM bands and all the weather bands. Very cool. Oh, did I mention it also doubles as a cell phone power bank? Did I mention the flashlight? Such a cool find. These go for $40 online, I paid $10 for mine and it was still new in the box. it had the cord, the manual, and even the registration card. :D I love it. I noticed it in the case because it is Eton and that is the brand of my Shortwave radio. I'm very happy with it and it works great! I will probably put it in my bug-out bag that I haven't started yet. I have several things for it and a sturdy bag for it all, I just haven't gotten around to it. Right now I only have Sterno, a multi-tool, and this cool radio. It will also be a handy thing to have if we have power outages this fall or winter. :)
I'm happy with my finds. It was a good trip. We went to eight different Goodwill stores all in Greensboro. We also went to another thrift store we saw while we were out but it was waaay overpriced! I was disappointed, but because they had four of five Starbucks tumblers I would have liked to have, but they priced them (ad everything else I liked) too high!
