Never trust google to tell you where the thrift stores are. One was a vacant lot, one was a dirty storefront with no signage--I didn't even stop--and one must exist in a parallel universe because I couldn't find it on this planet.
I do find one new one, which rocked. There I got
--a cute stripy Hanna Anderson turtleneck for Katie Grace for $2
--a cute stripy Hanna Anderson shirt for Nicholas for $2
--Lands End boots for Daniel to grow into for $2
Something must have been half-off though, because I only spent $5.
Our other stops were oldies but goodies.
--a wooden pumpkin bowl to be our Thanksgiving gratitude bowl, 50 cents
--a cute little cloth St. Nicholas for 50 cents
--a book on tape (Indian in the Cupboard) for 75 cents
--a tissue paper flower garland NIP that will be sweet for a party, 50 cents
-- a couple yards of funky material (black with flowers) for $1
--a loaf pan for $1.50
--a buttonholer for $1
--another Hanna shirt for $2
--a Lands End skirt for $2
--another hippie skirt for $2
--a huge bag of tealights for $1
--a Cars car for Nick (Chick Hicks) NIP for $1
The kids were shockingly well-behaved. And this was all on our way to the Amish surplus outlet we hit every 6 weeks or so, so it was really a great day of deals.
And if you're interested
at the surplus grocery I scored 6 snack packs of organic applesauce (79 cents each), organic microwave popcorn (99 cents), organic honey ($3), organic canned tomatoes (50 cents), fresh organic pineapples for 99 cents each, fresh organic pears for $1.49, a huge bag of soup crackers for 99 cents, all-fruit jelly for 99 cents, organic cooking oil for $1.99 a bottle, and I stocked up on bulk goods (brown sugar, raw sugar, I forget what else).
It was a happy day.
