Thrifting Feed

No thrifting today!

My friend and I have decided to postpone our thrifting trips until after the beach trip. Well, we'll be thrifting at the beach, but we always do that! I want to save what little money I have left for the trip.  He has the trip, taxes, and the possibility of a car purchase before the trip.  He wants to get a larger vehicle than the one he has for trips and such.  I love being able to take mine, but if he gets one, I won't have to worry about so many miles being added to Goontz!  

I wrote a LOT today.  I finally stopped at 4567 words! @_@; Yes, I was on a roll! I am now going to relax a bit until bedtime. I want to re-read what I wrote, too! :)


Tuesday thrifting!

My friend and I went thrifting today. I didn't think we were because he said we shouldn't because of the possible gas shortage, but I told him I wanted to go one more time and we could just put on hold future trips until our beach trip.  We went and I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I did get a  few fun things. At Salvation Army, I got a vintage photo album, a little sign, and a book. The book is The Little Seagull Handbook it's a handbook for writing that I thought would be very handy. It's still sealed in the shrink wrap. I looked it up and it retails for over $20 for this edition and I paid a whole one dollar! Whoo-hoo!

We went to the Reidsville Goodwill and I bought a case and keyboard cover for a random Macbook. I wasn't sure if it would even fit. The case does not, but the keyboard cover does.  For $3 it was worth it!   I also found a little zipper purse/passport thing.  I saw this several trips ago to this Goodwill and was going to buy it last time we were in. I didn't see it so I thought it was already gone.  I looked on the first trip in there today and didn't see it.  We went back in there after going to Mayodan and I found it.  It was meant to be mine!  The reason we went back is I passed on the Macbook cover thing because I thought it was $1.49 and it was $3.00 I decided I DID want it and I'm glad I did since the keyboard part does work!

At Mayodan, I found a cute little unicorn notebook, a Ziploc with a pack of Papermate Mirado pencils, 21 loose Ticonderoga pencils (MY FAV!), some cap erasers, a few used bigger erasers, a small one in the plastic wrap, and a box of pink big erasers. It's a 12 pack and ten are still there.  A good amount of goodies for $2.  I also got some Fiskars cutting stencils. I can use them as regular stencils for my bullet journal. I also got a little travel kit with rose-scented things.  A nice little haul. :) OH, I almost forgot! I found another pair of Homer pajama bottoms! LOL These are him with Christmas lights and it says D'oh all over them. :P


Friday and thrifting

My friend and I went for our Friday thrift trip today. We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, Mayodan, and Martinsville.  All those places and I didn't get a lot.  At the Salvation Army in Reidsville, I got a flash drive new in the package for $3. I didn't get anything at the Reidsville Goodwill.  We went to Walkertown and I found a Starbucks tumbler that I wanted. Sadly while we were in there their power went out and they would not ring up anyone. They wouldn't even do cash transactions.  It was very annoying.  We waited a bit hoping it would come back up but no.  That was frustrating.

We left there and went to the Mayodan Goodwill. I found two bags with stuff for $2 each. In between the two bags, there were craft supplies, two packages of pencils, a multi-pen, a ruler, and three loose pencils. The funniest thing is, two of the loose pencils are promo items for my bank! I thought that was pretty cool. There were also three brand new (at least I am pretty sure) Sakura gelly roll white pens! Very neat.  We went on from there to Martinsville and I only found one thing there.  I found a DayTimer planner for $1. Not a huge haul, but some good finds. At the Mayodan Goodwill, I found four Fossil bags! I didn't buy any of them. One I already had the exact same back and the other three were nice but they were not bags I would carry myself.  Yes, I could have gotten them to re-sell, but I'm a bit low on funds this month as I just had to pay taxes on my car. Yikes! I took a picture of a cute little tree at the Goodwill in Reidsville:

Tuesday Thrift Trip

Sorry about the last few days and not posting.  My friend and I went on a thrift trip today. We went to Reidsville and Mayodan. No Walkertown this trip.  We hit Reidsville first and went to the Salvation Army store.  I got another weather alert radio, a grabber stick, and a little sketchbook/scrapbook.   At Goodwill, I only found one item. This:

It's a ceramic Starbucks cup from 2011 and it's 8oz.  I just happened to see it and grabbed it. I may have said, mine! out loud. :p   From there we went to the Goodwill in Mayodan.  There was a little package there last time that I wanted and didn't get. It was some hanging file folders and some other types of folders mixed in. I got that, a got a two-pack of alcohol wipes, a little case that is the perfect size for carrying DS games, a little card maker set, and some straps to keep your sheets on the bed.  The little card maker set is some blank cards, envelopes, stickers, etc. Some of it has been used, but a lot of it is still there and it was only $2 so I got it.

That was the trip, not a lot of things, but I'm always happy to add to my Starbucks collection and this cup is nice.  I love the ceramic ones as I don't have a lot of those in my collection.

 

 


Saturday

So, I didn't post the last two days. Sorry about that. I meant to yesterday, but it didn't happen.  My friend and did a thrift trip yesterday. I didn't think we were because I was broke. My friend said he'd spot me if I found anything I wanted.   I agreed and we went. We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan.  I found a pair of Ryka shoes at the Salvation Army. I love Ryka and these looked pretty new and they were my size. They will replace my daily shoes that were also a pair of Ryka that I bought brand new at the beach in 2018.

At the Reidsville Goodwill, I found a nice Starbucks holiday mug from 2013. I'm always happy to find those.  My friend was looking in electronics and I found something.  We checked it out and it was a vintage hair dryer from Sears. It's all in one. It's a plastic case and everything is inside. The bonnet for your hair, the hose that goes to it, and the power cord. Totally compact and totally cool! It was $6." It's even got a built-in plastic carry handle. My friend said it was small enough to carry to the beach. He is right!

We went from there to Walkertown.  Last time, I saw and left a Fossil bag.  I was sort of hoping it would still be there, but it wasn't.  It was priced at $20 which is not bad for a Fossil, but I didn't have it.  I didn't have it yesterday either, but my friend said he'd spot me the money if I found another purse I wanted.  This particular Goodwill prices nicer name brand handbags are a bit more. There was an off-white or Bone as they call it Sak bag.  I debated on it and debated on it and left it. As we sat in the parking lot, my friend told me that if I wanted it, I better get it or I'd regret it. He was right. I want back and got it. I took a picture of it today:

It's lovely and I love it!  I don't think I've ever mentioned the seat covers. If I have, sorry! We found those on another thrift trip some time back at the Salvation army. The pink and black looks nice with Goontz dark interior. :)
