I've discovered 2 new thrift stores recently whilst on outings with my mom, who now lives 10 minutes away from me for 6 months out of the year - yay!!! Such a good lil' thrifter she is. Never gets mad at me for taking so long (like some other people I know), tries her hardest to find things for me to resell, and will never let me pay for lunch dangit! I finally convinced her to let me pay for our next Roasted Poblano Burger and Sweet Potato French Fries at EZ's. Deee-lish. I don't eat too many burgers but when I do, I usually head to EZ's.
So far I only thrift at stores. No garage sales or estate sales yet. I already have too much and I like to thrift during the week versus the weekends. I go to several different Goodwill stores; Thrift Town; a giant store I always forget the name!? of and The Humane Society Thrift Store (smart idea!). The 2 new stores had a great selection of books, which I have a weakness for, and really good pricing. Yay! Some day I will go to estate sales because I like the idea of seeing where the item 'lived' and a glimpse of that owner's life. Also seems sweet because of collections you come across. And jewelry. And artwork. And antiques. And kitchenware. And just about everything I collect and/or like. Gotta lose some inventory before I go there.
Here's a few treasures I found whilst thrifting with my mom (in addition all the books I bought - about 15 children's and 15 adult).
