Mine's not a recent buy, but I'm still happy to talk about it. Last December, I was looking for some dishes, because I was getting my apartment at the end of the month, and coming here from Texas with nothing but what would fit into the bed of my pickup meant I was starting completely over. I ended up at a thrift store and when I walked out, I had a complete set of dishes (okay, it's a place setting for eight but it's missing the bowls, has all the other plates and ONE of the bowls, LOL), plus a set of glasses (three large, four juice-size), three nice throw pillows, an entire drawer full of silverware (matched, even!!), a heavy butcher knife, kitchen utensils like spoons, spatulas, can opener, whisks, etc., four coffee cups, and a heavy pot with a lid.... and I spent a whopping $9.25. I was... THRILLED. I've been back to the same thrift store since and I've scored a small end-table to put my printer on, kinda beat up but it's very sturdy, for $4, and a nice pair of almost-new slacks for my 2nd grader for 75 cents. Plus they have classic beanie babies for $2 each, and it's like my kids have to have one every time we go in (some days they're half-price, can't beat that). I LOVE this store. I'm totally going there this month for Easter baskets - they have a huge selection of baskets, none of them more than $2.
