Thrift Scores!

It's been a major week of thrift stores and neat scores here & there. Countless trips to various Goodwills & countless trips to countless Value Villages & a trip to Talize & a Salvation Army yielded some interesting treasures & one of the grossest items I've seen for sale in a thrift in a while, but this will be saved for WTF? Tuesday - so stay tuned!

Check out this 13" still in the box robot named SATURN by Kamco - only $3.99 at Value Village. I have yet to try him out since the only set of double d's is the one on my bestie, but I'm almost positive he's in working order! He's got all his parts & wa
s stored very nicely in his box.

I found this the other day, a very retro/vintage desk organizer - 60's? $1.99 at a Value Village. Now I just need a desk to put it on! I think it's going to find it's way onto my Lack Ikea shelf for the time being. Still working on that project.

At Talize I found this very awesome #403 yellow bowl in awesome condition. I've got a couple refrigerator dishes in this colour & I totally love it. It's a more mustard yellow that the colour of the usual 400 series or the large bowl from the primary.

New Kids on the Block & Vanilla Ice pins... Value Village.

I bought this Strawberry Shortcake stationery set at Salvation Army & I've listed it for a pretty penny on eBay, getting my price from the recently completed auctions for the Strawberry Shortcake stationery. I had 3 watchers in less than 2 hours. Let's see how this works out. click here if you want to view the auction.

Rainbow Brite pillow case - excellent condition, was on my want list, 99cents at Talize!

Lastly, I had found these cards about mid-November & was supposed to put them to good use this year as my Christmas cards, very retro, but we never got our pic taken for them & I don't really have that many people to send them to anyways. A boy can dream. They are great eh? You still the pic in the front. Classic.

OK, so like always, joining up with...

  12. beckyp - Mozilla Firefox saves it for me, so I never have to type it - I love that! & I sold that stationery about an hour ago. Can`t wait to buy something fun & exciting with the $$$$! I just put up a Pantera shirt for $49.99, pretty rare, so I hope the bidding goes high!
