Do you like thrift stores as much as I do? I forget to go very often, and I don’t find good stuff every time, but when I do? Man! It’s so much fun. Today was a GREAT day. I found two sturdy plastic bins for dog toys, a cheap blanket for the dogs to lay on, two sweaters, and two bags of assorted craft supplies. Those two bags are the best part, and that’s even after I set aside the old ugly spools of ribbon and small ball of scratchy acrylic yarn. Let’s start with the first bag, shall we? I grabbed it as soon as I saw the DPNs.
For $4.99, I got these treasures! YES! Those are indeed Addi Turbos! How about that?? The bamboo straights are a duplicate for me, but at that price, who cares?
Here’s the second bag. You can’t see the tag very well, but it was a whopping $3.99. And you can probably see why I snatched it up without even looking to see what else was in there!That’s right: another set of Addi Turbos!! Again, the size 9 bamboos are a duplicate, but the rest aren’t, and are great additions to my needle collection.
I’m pretty pleased with myself, guys. What’s the best thing you’ve found at a thrift store?
You totally scored! I love thrift store (Savers in particular) shopping. I got a skein of Elsebeth Lavold silky wool for $1.00! That was a thrill:)
I know!! Finding good yarn is a thrill too, for sure!
I can only say that I wish we had thrift stores. [whinge …]
Downunder we have only Op Shops; and their stock varies so wildly that actually finding appealing items can be real challenge, and one goes only when looking for something specific.
Oh dear, that is too bad! But what is an Op Shop??
Wow!! It looks like you’ve made a trip to your LYS and spent $100! Well done! I want to come thrifting in your patch!
Thank you! Sadly, finds like this almost never happen. Just got lucky! 🙂
Amazing, there is nothing more satisfying than a good thrift store haul!
