My Pledge and the Most Unbelievable Thrift Find Snatched Away.

I pinkie swear that I am going to stay out of all thrift stores until one of these two criteria are met:

A.  I list everything I have on hand .  ( Stop laughing.)
B.  We hit November 1st.

  The second is the most likely.  I just feel like I'm spending to much time and money on thrifting right now.  I'll still be hitting whats left of the yard sales when I can and consignment sales are still ripe for the picking but no thrifts.

  Oh while on the subject of thrifts you will never believe what someone picked up not two feet in front of me yesterday at the local Savers.......I'll post in the next day or so to tell you what it was but I'll leave you with this.  If it ever happens that I miss out again like this I will actually weep right there in the store rather than the jaw drop I did this time.  Any guesses what huge score I missed out on by less than a second??????


  1. American girl doll? Einsteins pat pat rocket? Vintage barbies. All of these world make me cry if I missed out on them.

  2. Whatever you do don't look up the completes on Ebay! It's like lemon juice in a paper cut. ;)

    1. Ugggg I agree. Sadly I already have a pretty good idea what $ I missed. Hopefully I'll have time in the next day or so to tell you all my story.

  3. I was going to guess American Girl doll too. I missed out on something once by mere seconds. It was two small and minty pyrex fridge containers with lids. Just as I was reaching for them, the flea market vendor grabbed them to wrap for another lady who had just purchased them. I asked her how much she paid and she said "$5." Ahh!

  4. I'm dying to find out...don't tease us like that!!! ;)
