I belong to an online group that calls goodwill outlets “as-is.” Which is true, stuff is sold by the pound as-is. I could spend most of the day here and a great deal of money. But my car battery died yesterday, a week before payday and I am now broke. Not happy about it since I had plans to hit the Labor Day sales but broke as I am I still could afford to drag myself to the as-is. I gave myself an hour and reminded myself I still have to buy gas and cat food. Stuff is 49 cents a pound, bigger items like furniture and luggage are more. What I got, total was 9.84
Clothes are a big draw, since it’s 49 cents a pound. But you spend a lot of time digging in the bins, sometimes competing with other people. It can be worth it, but it’s a lot more work than I want to put in.
Messenger bag and white sheets for my son.
Picture of Mary and baby Jesus, caption is Mary, helper of Christians. Very old school, also will scare the crap out of my Baptist relatives. Cho likes it.
Big score was the dinosaur sheets, they are Sandra Boynton sheets from the 80’s and I collect them. If I have a grandchild who likes dinosaurs I may give them to him or her. May, not a promise.
I’m not really a girly pale pink person but Chucks are still Chucks.
Hand towel and old embroidered dish towel. I’m a sucker for old linens.
Little dinosaur for my nephew but he looks happy in my room.
The last picture is from Sally Ann, a few weeks ago. An old thrift trick, to hide something you can’t afford or carry now and will come back to buy. I’ve found clothes and toys stuffed in housewares, but this is genius. Hiding it in plain sight, sort of, because nobody ever looks at stuff between racks or on the floor. I hope whoever hid these sheets found them waiting when they came back.
