I hate thrift stores!
You have never been to a thrift store? Well you are in for a treat, grab some coffee (or some other caffeine, or stimulant) and join me on my recent journey to a local thrift store, The Salvation Army's Family Store.
Today at the T.S. (thrift store) all pink tags were 50% off. TSs know how to mark down merchandise. There are usually different colored labels at different discount. Just a little insider info for you.
As we walked in we were greeted by this head. The severed head of a mannequin decapitated many years ago. The lifeless eyes staring at you saying, "buy this old Chicago Bears hat for 40 cents". Notice the safety precautions taken by management by putting a tennis ball on the end. Wouldn't want to poke an eye out.
Moving deeper into the store reveals a great looking wooden doll . A local artisan painted a face on this fine piece. It's as if she is ready to slam dunk a basketball. You might want to consider this item for Fathers day, or maybe an anniversary to say to your spouse, "marrying you was a slam dunk".
One of my favorite parts is the standing around. Here my bride is searching for a treasure, I would help her but somebody has to hold up the walls.
After visiting this aisle, I was given the task of holding the treasure. Today we purchase two heads of lettuce made out of some kind of ceramic or metallic something. Also a glass jar. I believe we also took home this basket.
Another thrift store success! So there you have it, a small glimpse into a typical thrift store. How do you survive thrift shopping?
