I love the thrift store! - Page 4

post #61 of 93
Last fall, I got a pair of (new looking) Birkenstocks at GW for $5.00!! I rarely look at shoes, but these caught my eye and when I saw they were new and my size I snactched them up!!

I got a Black and Decker steamer/rice cooker for $5.00 not too long ago- it looked brand new! That is the BEST rice maker ever (stovetop rice cooking is a pain for me).

Yesterday was our weekly trip to SA, I scored a sweet little book "1 is one", we're saving it for our spring book basket (it is very springy 25c), a doodle book for my eldest (25c), a wooden airplane ($1.50) a wooden container truck and wooden fire truck ($2.00). The wood vehicles were by Tuff Toys in Salmon Arm, BC and would have cost $36 altogether brand new!! http://www.tufftoys.bc.ca/ My youngest is loving them and has been playing with them all morning!

I had a few minutes after working out yesterday and DH was getting the kids so I went to goodwill-scored big time! I've been needing more work casual clothes (I'm a nurse but doing computer stuff right now and am running out of stuff to wear!): a pair of cords (gap), a sweater (LL Bean), 2 l/s tops, an eddie bauer skirt and a shirt for DS-all for 20.xx! I couldn't believe it! The clothes are all in great shape-the shirt for DS was NWT

4 very flattish hand-carved wooden salad bowls ( now used for play kitchen plates) for .99

2 stainless steel travel coffee mugs to replace the one dh left behind on his business trip, .99 each

2 stainless steel teapots (the kind you get in restaurants when you order tea) for .99 each. Now used for cows milk/soymilk on the table so the boys can pour their own on oatmeal, cereal or into glasses. (I'm big on everyone serving themselves if possible.)

so very, very true, I got my Ergo at a thrift store, brand new(older style though) for $2.49. It was priced the same as all the other carriers, like the Snugli. I've also gotten some great cloth items at my store, a brand new fleece stacinator cover, $1.49, a cottonbabies insert for 49cents, and a pack of Dappi pullons, $1.49, and a few Gerber flannel prefolds for 49cents(those are great as stuffings/doublers)

I found at the good will: 2 hanna anderson play dresses $2.00 each, a white hanna anderson long sleeve onseie $1.00 (still tags on it), Hanna anderson leggins $1.00 and baby legs still in the package for $1.00. The play dresses will fit dd for the summer the onesie and the baby legs I will put away incase we have another baby. I was so excited, I never usually buy anything at thrift stores because I can never find anything.

That is great about the birkies score!
