I hit the thrift stores on a mission, to buy house stuff for my son’s upcoming visit, I could use all new furniture, carpet and a new roof but more immediate and affordable needs were what this was about. I need new linens, sheets and towels, a pillow or two, little things. I got most of the things I needed, spent less than if I went to the mall or Wal-Mart. I also got stuff not on the list, as I do. Jerry and I got most of our house stuff at thrifts, usually because it was cheap.
I hit three regular thrift stores and then the Mother of all Goodwills, the outlet, which is not for the faint of heart or easily discouraged. All the clothes and the washcloth came from the Goodwill outlet, everything else from the 3 thrifts. I spent 4 hours and $25, this is what I got.
it’s all a matter of perspective. did not buy but was tempted

This is why I think I was destined to be at the Goodwill outlet that day.
It had a sour funky smell, probably why nobody touched it. No more funk, thanks to oxyclean. Next to the wookiee pants, my favorite score.

I took pictures of the inside but the cashier said I could get in trouble if security saw me, somebody posted video on youtube, caused a big hassle. So I’m just posting these from outside.
