DONKEY KONG FROM EARLY 2000’S

As I was cashing out one day at Value Village I hear hubz say hold on, don’t cash out yet as he is carrying over a large plaque poster, I figured he had found something Simpsons or sports related for our games room, IT WAS A YOUNG JOHNNY DEPP! and my hubz insisted I bring it home to hang in our games room!
He jokingly said only rule is you can’t hang it in the bedroom, lol, not that I would seriously but he knows me too well that I’d jokingly say I would, it would be the perfect spot wouldn’t it?

YUMMY! I WASTED NO TIME HANGING IT ON THE GAME ROOM WALL
I’ve also spent the last few months collecting little planters, which I hope to plant tropical plants in them, and bring in some of my outdoor succulents for the winter.
I scored a large galvanized tub ( you know the type you serve drinks on ice in) for $6 and it will become a tropical plant arrangement hopefully.

It is a shot from Macklemore’s video/song Thrift Shop!
Interesting fact: This video was partly filmed in a Value Village ( Savers) in 2012, I had been working for the company for 3.5 years then, and unfortunately had to leave just shy of my 5 years because of all my health issues. I recycled my paycheck there while employed with them, but my love of second hand was long before I went to work there.
If you’re a seasoned thrifter enjoy the day and I hope you find some treasures, for those who haven’t at all or much thrifted, get on out there and see how much fun it is!

  1. Loved seeing your treasures. We don’t have any Savers in Maine; been to one in NH several times. I have had good luck at GW and a hospital thrift shop finding material. Trying to reduce clutter here by sewing is just WAY TOO SLOW! Really enjoyed your post

  2. This is such a fun posts. Always like seeing what other treasures everyone comes home with. I am watching Crazy Lamp Lady on YouTube right now, wow they find all kinds of things. I do not have the storage to second hand shop as much as I would like but I sure have a ton of fun doing it.
