My recent Goodwill find was the stuff of legends. $4 for an amber-glass pitcher, $2 for each glass.
Pretty amazing. and perfect for yogurt. and ice cream.
And a kind of find worth a dance in the aisle filled with mugs with kittens on them, and a phone call to your mom (if she's just as thrift-happy as you) to brag about what you found.
My mom is definitely thrift-happy and I can fortunately say she's taught me all I know about the art of bargain hunting and Goodwill-ing.
One of my earliest memories was at a thrift store with my mom. It was dark inside, I think, and I remember being allowed to pick out something, anything I wanted. We were there likely to pick out dress up clothes and toys, and of course, any other treasure that most thrift stores hold.
So I pointed to a black and white plastic horse sitting above me on a shelf. Nothing special, just a horse with a painted-on gold bridle. I still have it today. It's like a weird token of my thrifting beginnings, or something.
do you thrift? have you always done so?
