Does Your Heart Race When You Thrift?

Does Your Heart Race When You Thrift?

This week I felt so anxious going into the Goodwill. Ever feel like that? Like if you don’t hurry, someone else will get that one great item? Or am I completely mad? I was shopping with my husband and he insisted on going to the Goodwill Keepers store first. They never have anything I like, […]

Cool Tools!

Cool Tools!

We were about to leave our local church thrift store (which is the size of a warehouse!) and there was a cart full of toys by the counter. I asked if it was coming in or going out and she said in – so I took a closer look because of this: My son had […]

What is this Object?

What is this Object?

Any idea what that item is in the picture? I bought it for the Ed Roth style fabric. It’s two wire hoops that fold up then open like a clam shell but they don’t stay open. There are handles but only on one side so you can’t carry it like a basket. There’s also a […]

An International Bonanza at the Goodwill

An International Bonanza at the Goodwill

This week, I stumbled upon a collection of foreign boxed “items” at my local Goodwill. Everything was still sealed and since I always hear my favorite eBay podcasters talking about the value of foreign language DVDs and CDs, I put them all in my cart.
