I really do need to catch up with my thrifty finds, last week I spent the night at Carla's, there are five thrift shops in her city, I did find a few things, nothing real exciting but things I like. This week I made my weekly trip to my closest city, all of the thrift shops are on one street and a new one just opened - it wasn't bad at all!! Every time I go to Value Village now I see items that are so wrongly priced, there is an old Jeopardy game on the shelf, it has been there for a couple of weeks now, I'm thinking it will be there for awhile, they've priced it at $19.99. That's crazy!!
I give you warning, there's going to be a fair amount of pictures in this post!
Aren't these cute? There were two packs of them. I'll probably list a pack and save one for SMASHING and sharing.
These weren't even opened
Just a small sample of some of the other cards.
The cover of this Eloise Wilkin book was covered in purple crayon, I got as much off as I could - I never treated my books like that - my children didn't either!!
Christmas Carols and a baking pamphlet. The carol book was published by the Green Giant Company
I've already done a Snoopy page in my SMASH book and used this book, I plan to do the same with the other books too. I had to buy the Anne books, that is the very same cover as my first Anne book, it was a hardcover, I should never have gotten rid of it!! I had a few Cherry Ames books, they were harder to come by, I would have read anything back then, I even had some Hardy Boys but my favourite was always Nancy Drew.
This is a beautiful book on Hummels.
It was printed in West Germany, 1972
This good sized old Christmas tin will be good for decorating. I had picked that up first thing, I took it to the cash, later when I went back to the cash with my other purchases, someone had put my tin back on the shelf - lucky it was still there!
One lone juice glass but she's a beauty!
The UNO game came from Value Village, we still like to play it, it's a great game! I want to use the cards for SMASHING. I'm going to use this old dictionary for SMASHing too, I actually found the dictionary and album at a yard sale, I asked the old lady how much, she said, well, it is Michael Jackson, I said $3 - she didn't put up a fight!!
Thriller! What a great album this is!!
Gary bought these the other day - staples, thumb tacks, clips and chalk. They're sitting on his work bench right now, not really sure what he's going to do with them but the boxes are awfully cute.
Another book for my Christmas collection, from 1965
These sweet little juice glasses came from the new thrift shop, I very ever seldom see nice glasses, I would have had another one last week, but I set it down while I was browsing at something else, never thought of it again, until it was too late.
Yard sales will be starting, I don't hold out much hope for them around here, I went just about every Saturday last year and I only hit one good sale - not lucky at all!!
