Thrift Store Thursday

This was a pretty good week at the shops. Come to think of it, I got everything at the same shop this week too, on a couple different outings (but not Goodwill this time).


Four Webkinz, $.50 each. They, of course, did not have the codes attached, so these cannot be brought to life online. Skippy and Pinkerbelle both just really like the stuffed animals and don’t do the online stuff too much anymore anyway. (These can be machine washed, BTW. Just put them inside a lingerie bag or zippered pillowcase; I've never had any problems.)

IMG_2460 This hoodie from Target was on the dollar rack. I’m pretty sure it was unworn; it really looked brand new.

IMG_2465Books are some of my absolute favorite thrift store finds, and I lucked out this week. Five Beverly Cleary books (four of them in the Ramona series) $.30 each. A hardcover Magic Treehouse, $1, and book number three of Francine River’s Mark of the Lion trilogy, $1. This is the only one of the three I haven’t read. They are really good and I highly recommend them.

I also got two wool sweaters for $1 each, for felting and repurposing, a la Betz White. Look at the trim on the red sweater: that will make a cute Christmas stocking, something like this.

That makes my total for the week $8.50…nice!

Now it’s your turn. I love seeing what everybody else finds!

Not to get all mean and bossy, but I’m going to need to enforce the rules this week. Last week I had several link-ups that did not link back to me. I let it go, but this week I’m going to have to delete any of those. That’s the linky love, folks…you can put your link on my blog, and you thank the hostess by linking back to me in your post. It’s win/win! (You can use an old post, just edit it to add my party info and link.)

So, here are the Mr. Linky rules again. If you’re not sure how to do any of these things, I will be happy to help you. It’s super easy; trust me, if I can do it, anybody can!

1. Please link directly to your Thrift Store Thursday post, not your home page.
2. Please mention and link back to my Thrift Store Thursday post.
3. Please put my button in your post, and I'd really love it if you'd use the code to do so :)

Oops! I guess it would've helped if I'd put Mr. Linky in the post, huh? I think I've got it right now.

Ok, I've got my link on! Woo hoo!! It's nice to show off all my good deals.

Tracy said...

I'd say you scored! Great treasures! Thanks for the opportunity to link. I found you via Sheryl at My Joyful Home. = )

I can't wait to see what you do with your pretty Christmas sweater.

I love books, too!

I linked up to your post, but I'm still trying to figure out how to add your button in Windows Live writer. All it wanted to show was the code itself.

I even posted, then went back into the Blogger edit to try to add it and I must be doing something wrong, because it didn't work there either.

Any ideas as to what to do?? :)

So glad I found your blog. I love the header..
Stop by my blog for a visit.

Though I am
new to blogging,
I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years. From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use. I have been so touched by the comments that I
have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
