I was running errands when I drove by an unfamiliar thrift store. So I went inside, maybe it would be good.
It was huge and full of crap.
I didn’t feel like digging through boxes and piles of stuff but gave it the old once over. It was what my aunt called “a junk shop.” It was nearly empty and I had the place to myself. I was on my way out when I saw something interesting. A tan toilet seat in the box. I have thrifted clothes, housewares and furniture but never something like this. I may be cheap but I have limits.
My big bathroom has old beige/almond colored fixtures, the kind they don’t make any more. I had a white toilet seat that was decent but didn’t match. I’ve seen beige seats but they were thirty bucks and I figured I’d rather have the thirty bucks and an unmatched seat. So I decided to take a chance on this, it was six bucks.
It was darker than my toilet but looks better than the old seat. Though I don’t think I’ll go back to that store. I asked the cashier what charity they were affiliated with and she said they bought the stuff they sold. I know its not a big deal to some people but I like knowing some of my money goes to a good cause. Also too much junk and none of it, except for the toilet seat, my kind of junk.
