The first Saturday of the month is the bag sale at the thrift store in the Senior Centre in Wahoo, Nebraska. The scarves would have been a deal at .25 cents full price, but into the $2.00 bag they went. Silk, from Italy. Fancy, huh?
This glass set was originally three dollars, but today I took it home for $1.50. Not a scratch or chip on it. There was a large matching trifle dish I should have bought as well for $4.00. If it is still there Monday I might go get it anyway-still quite the bargain.
This jacket is a velvety/suede type of material and is a much deeper blue than the overexposed photo makes it look. I fell in love with the collar, so into the bag it went. I also bought Danny a brand new pair of sneakers. We were paying when the resident grandma insisted I go find something else to shove in the bag because the vintage jacket, two silk scarves and Keds weren't getting my full two dollars worth. I know better than to argue with grandma...so I found a red corduroy jacket (also much deeper coloured than the photo looks). She was so happy I found something else. We found a couple motorcycle magazines for Danny in the Free pile by the door on the way out.
Not my favourite look, but Granny insisted I take it.
Also purchased but not pictured:
Vintage greeting cards, still in box from 1940's(.25 cents)
A Richard Simmons Video Tape (Mr. Eat The Blog thought it would amuse Danny...or so he claims) .50 cents
A paper lantern shaped like a fish still in the original sealed packaging (.25 cents)
I still can't believe how lucky I was-I never find nice glassware. Then, because clearly the cheapskate gods were smiling on me, I went grocery shopping and bought a two pound block of extra sharp cheddar for $3.99
Not a bad day overall.
