Unexpected Thrift

So, I was planning on staying in today. I got out the case I keep my notes and the first four printouts of the zombie books. I had planned dot go through and refresh myself and take notes and decide on a title and get that done.  I also planned to go to the post office and mail my pen pal letters and come back by the grocery store and pick up a few things. As I was getting ready to dress to go out, my friend texted and asked if I wanted to do a bit of thrifting. We were to go to a few Goodwill stores we don't get to often and were going to eat at Dairy Queen, too. I said, why not so we went.  My favorite finds were a Starbucks tumbler, a very cool iHome radio/bluetooth speaker, and a small afghan.  I also found some other assorted things. One of them being a cartridge and some photo paper for my Canon Selphy. Yay Another great find was a cute little ring planner my Kikki k! It's blue and has cats. Very cute indeed.  I took a picture of the clock and the tumbler to share.

I love my finds.  The Starbucks tumbler is pretty cool. It was one that you purchased in December of 2013 and you could bring it in to a Starbucks every day in 2016 and get a free grande (the size of the cup) coffee! Cool find indeed.


Tuesday Thrift

My friend and I went on a small thrift trip. Just Reidsville. I didn't get anything in Goodwill, but I got a pair of new fuzzy slippers and a ladle at Salvation Army.  The slippers are brand new, very fuzzy, very comfy and they are sparkly. So cute.  We went to the Goodwill in our city when we got back I found a few other things there and my favorite find was a Starbucks water bottle. It's brand new and still had the original price sticker on it! :)

Very cool, yes? I was happy to add it to my collection. It's only 13 .oz so it won't hold a lot, but it's very cute so that is okay. :p By the way, the original price was $18.95. I paid .99¢. Score! 


Big thrift, no puzzle!

I didn't have a chance to pull out a puzzle today. My friend and I went on a long thrift trip. Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan. I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I did get some goodies.  One of my finds was another Starbucks tumbler! It's cute. Sadly, when we were loading the car, my friend put the bag I and my tumbler fell out and hit the pavement. :( It cracked at the bottom, but it won't interfere with its use. I just wish that hadn't happened. My poor tumbler took a tumble! :( I found two cute composition books in one GW that have black shiny glitter covers. They are so cute! They were only.50¢ I should have bought more! I will if they have any left the next time I go.  I really don't need more notebooks (HAHA) but yeah. Anyway! :p

I didn't think I would get to write tonight as I'm extremely tired, but I did get almost 1600 words so I'm happy!  I am trying to write everyday.  I STILL have no idea what I'm doing for NaNoWriMo. I HAVE to decide on that SOON. Ah! Here are a few pretty rainbow pictures I took while we were out.

A bit hard to see and not as pretty as in person, but there you go!


Small thrift and a puzzle

My friend asked if I wanted to go to a restaurant out of town that we like and I agreed, so we did. We also were able to go to the Goodwill that is along the way there.  I got a few things. My favorite? A wood wick candle! :)  I have always wanted to try one.  It's brand new, too.  I worked on another puzzle.  This one is a shaped one. It was interesting to do!  Sheesh! :P  This one had bigger pieces (yay) and it had more pieces, too.  This was a 200 piece one.  It was pretty fun but a bit weird with the shape of it.

Tuesday thrift

We went to Reidsville today for a small thrift trip.  I only got a few things at each place. (Salvation Army and Goodwill) My favorite find was a black leather Fossil bag with the key tag and key still on it. Yay! After we got back, I went out myself to get one of those huge storage containers to store some of the bags I keep buying. :p  I should have counted them as I put them in.  I do plan to go back and write down which ones are in there so I'll have a record when I need a certain bag. I'll know if it's in there or somewhere else.  Here is the cute Fossil bag:

Hello October

I'm starting off October with a post. I really need to get back into posting daily.  I don't have a lot to share, though. :p I did go to Starbucks on National coffee day two days ago and also today for my first of the month trip! :)  Both were free as I have stars left on my card. Good thing too, because I have no money on my card right now.  I hope to still do a post-beach trip update soon.  I want to share some of the goodies I got while thrifting. We have thrifted a few times since then and I have gotten a few things that I can share too.  I love sharing my thrifting finds. They are so fun!


Long time no see!

Yes, I realized that I haven't posted once since getting home from the beach.  Sorry about that.  It's just so depressing being home after being there.  All that balcony time has been sorely missed!  I haven't done a lot since we got back.  My friend and I did go thrifting on Friday.  We went the usual round. Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan.  I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I did get a few things.  I still have to do a post with some of the pictures of things I bought at the beach. I'll do that soon, I hope! I'm proud of myself for getting this written!  I went to the grocery store today so I've had too much pe9ple interaction for this week! lol

The only other 'new' thing is I downloaded and installed iOS 15 on the mini today. I like it so far. I wish I could make the screen look like iOS 14 but I'll get used to it. 


Thursday evening post

I'm back at the hotel and back on the balcony.  We went out to get a few thrift shops we had missed as of today.  We went to the Salvation Army in North Myrtle Beach, The Goodwill in North Myrle Beach, and he went to a pawn shop there.  We then went to Conway and went to the Goodwill there.  I got a Fossil bag at the Conway Goodwill, a refill for a sticker maker (Not sure if it's the right size for mine, but it was brand new so I got it, and something else that I can't remember! I got a shirt and some paper at the Salvation Army in NMB, I forgot to mention that. Nothing at GW in NMB.

At Loyola, I only got a little tin and a face mask. (For sleep or relaxation).  I wish I could remember the other thing I got at the Goodwill in Conway. If I were inside the room, I could tell you as that is where it is! lol, I have some random pictures to share.  The last is of the sky when we got back here.  I took them while eating a delicious cheesesteak! :) Enjoy and see you tomorrow.

Impromptu thrift!

My friend texted me today and asked if we could go to Greensboro in my car to pick up a few items.  I said sure! We stopped in Reidsville on the way over to get food at Bojangles and went to the two thrift stores there since we were there.  I got two candles and a Myrtle Beach coffee mug at Salvation Army.  At Goodwill, I found a cute snowman glass and a Kate Spade 'tackle box' set. It is complete except for four ribbon push pins. It's so cute! The binder clips and washi caught my eye.  When I saw it was only $5 AND it was Kate Spade, I got it!  Luckily it was in the case so it wasn't opened and everything taken out. I'm quite happy with it. I love anything journal-related. Plus, it's Kate Spade! Here is my haul:

Very fun haul!  As for posts, there should be an abundance starting Sunday. If you don't see me before, you'll see me then! :)


Thrifting is fun!

I got some great things today! I found a Sak bag, a Fossil bag, two Starbucks mugs, and the cutest Starbucks ceramic tumbler EVER. It's so damn cute! It's from 2015 and you'll see it below.  I got various other things, too! One of the neat finds was a Ziploc bag of vintage iron-on patches still in the original packaging! Very, very cool! Here are some of my finds and a cute tree at one of the Goodwill stores:

 

You can click on any picture to see the entire thing.  I love my finds!


Nothing much

Yes, nothing much to report today.  I didn't even leave the house!  I thought my friend and I were going thrifting, but he FINALLY went to Greensboro to pick up the item he has been going for a week now! :p  We will go tomorrow.  It's just been so hot here I haven't wanted to do anything. I've been in my room in front of the air conditioner AND a box fan!  UGH. I hate heat.  It's just so unpleasant. Fall cannot get here fast enough! Come on Fall!


Thrifting post a day late.

I sat down to make this post last night and got distracted. I don't even know what distracted me, now.  We went to Reidsville and went to Salvation Army and Goodwill.  I was able to find a Coca-Cola crate at Salvation Army. I already have two, so I was happy to add another. I also got a stamper, a little tray, and some stickers. The tray was neat. It hs the Eiffel tower on it and it's got French writing on it. Very cute.

At Goodwill, I found a clear Starbucks cold cup and a tumbler.  I also found a little pack of four mini notebooks and a silicon tray with pumpkins. I'm guessing either for candy or ice cubes. I'm going to use it for pumpkin ice cubes. :) We got back to Danville and went to one of the Goodwill stores here.  I found a red and white Starbucks holiday mug and another small pack of stickers. Decent haul for all. Here are the Starbucks things:

Yes, I know!

I totally planned to post the past two days.  Yesterday was a busy one. I got a lot accomplished. Sunday is always my busy day. I finally washed dishes and boy did I need to do that! :p  I washed my bed linen, my hair, and it seems like something else? Saturday I mowed the front lawn and washed Goontz! I took my time and washed well, but I drove a bit to let him dry and I could see spots I missed. D'oh! I'll have to re-do the wash soon. I meant to do it yesterday but I had all the other things to get done.

Tomorrow is the day my friend and I usually thrift, but I'm not sure if we are. He needs to run to Greensboro to pick up something and was going today but decided not to. He might want to go tomorrow which would not work with our going thrifting. I guess we'll see!  If we do, I'm sure I'll have something to post about it! 


Sigh, so much for staying home on my birthday!

I went over to Starbucks to get my birthday drink. As I'm leaving the drive-thru, my friend texts me.  I had been re-considering doing a thrifting trip today. I decided to go for it! We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan. I got a vintage General Electric tape recorder! :)  I also two two Starbucks tumblers. One a sparkly hot or cold tumbler and one a venti cold cup.  I was happy to find these as they were in wonderful condition.  I also found a Kate Spade handbag! @_@; I'm not sure it's genuine, but I think it is, I'll have to research tomorrow. It looks just like a real one I found via a search. It's not really my style bag, but it was a Kate Spade! :p

Other things I got were a bag of scrunchies, an 'art' kit, a container with some various markers, a glittery jack o lantern, 2 pairs of fuzzy socks and one pair of striped knee-high socks (all new), an adulting note pad, and a pack of inserts for a Happy Planner. Oh, also two sets with a pen and a pad of matching notes.  Not a bad haul.  Here are the cups:

Nice, yes?  Here is the Kate Spade bag:
