Who needs a day to thrift shop? NOT THIS GIRL!
Below are some of our recent thrift store finds.
PLASTIC FLINTSTONES MUG FROM 1994
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.
Who recognizes this photo?
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!
