It's kind of the thrift store version of Black Friday. If you're in the right mood, it can be an adventure. Teenage Daughter is always in the right mood, and she wanted to go on her birthday. I wasn't anywhere near the right mood and wasn't even looking in the bins myself, just trying to keep track of my purse and my younger two. It was pure luck that I found the fabric.
And even better luck when Teenage Son came up to me with these...
When I was on my Nancy Drew kick, this series was mentioned over and over. I've never read any of them and I know nothing about them, but based on the recommendations of my readers, I decided to bring them home with me. Then my son kept digging and kept finding more and more...
I wound up with nine books from the series, all in very nice condition considering their age and the fact that they'd been buried in bin of torn up paperbacks and cookbooks. I never buy books at the bins, but I knew I'd never find these cheaper, if I did find them again at all. I figure if I hate them, I can always pass them along to someone else.
Teenage Daughter found a stack of gorgeous clothes, in her size, including the most interesting vintage suede jacket on the planet. It's pink. And long. And has lots of metalgrommets for no apparent reason.
Teenage Son found an original Gameboy and a DS cartridge, both in working condition. I can't understand why those, or the books, had found their way into the bins.
