Overdue Multiple Thrift Adventure

Because I had tech problems with loading phone pictures to the computer and this week I killed the new internet for a day. ...


I am so excited that I had a thrifting adventure!

I didn’t think we were doing anything much because of other responsibilities (mowing) and the rainy weather. But I awoke to the husband finishing the mowing he started Friday night I knew I may get to go somewhere. The Penney Farms estate sale was this weekend. I got a shower and dressed but I didn’t want to rush the husband since he did all the mowing. So I waited. Before we left I asked if we could go to the estate sale. Then I took him for breakfast at McDonalds (dollar menu yeah!).
I forgot the hours so it was over by the time we got there. The other sale I read online was almost over too. So we went to the Resale store. I love that place. The prices are awesome and you never know what you will find. This time did not disappoint. I found a squishy brain and a snowman magnet that they gave me for free (the original price was 5 cents so it would be a win either way).

The husband found an odd device that opens things. He isn’t sure what to use it for but he and his Dad always come up with something. He also bought an extension cord that he gave to his Dad. His Dad always says he has all of his extension cords.

I spotted the 50 cent Kodak slide projector carousel WITH slides. The husband got to talking to a guy working there and he said normally they give away slide stuff to Salvation Army. I better start going there more often. Or maybe that store will start keeping the slide stuff.
I also scored another crewel. I have seen this one before.

Then we went to the Quigley House (DV shelter) Thrift in Orange Park. I really need to put the cell phones I want to donate in the car because I don’t always plan our treks. They had a 50% off sale (excluding furniture). I probably should have bought even more, but I did find this cool wall hanging:

I haven’t been able to find the exact one online but Bancroft made several others. Too ‘70s for me to pass over. I also found they have a bag of books (paper bag mind you) for $3. Well I went to searching. I didn’t fill the bag to the top, but I scored 21 books. Plus they were 50% off too. So 21 books for $1.50. The husband was surprised I didn’t go back. It took so long to find the ones I got.

Then we went to Whataburger since the husband must have his special order burger whenever we are near one.

We went to another good thrift, the Haven Hospice Thrift store in Orange Park. We usually find some interesting stuff there. The husband found a Wii racket to go with the other Wii parts he found there last year. He found some t-shirts to try his art project and future business on. More to come on that.

I snatched up the 1970s mirror art that matches the one I found almost exactly a year ago. More 70s for the living room. Plus it has trees and the moon, two of my favorite things.

I found a few other odds and ends. Plus they have 25% off on Saturdays. They have great deals the rest of the week and 25% off every day for the military. The lady ringing us up was so sweet. They are always so nice there. Plus they are a great organization.

We made one last thrift stop to the Community Hospice Thrift store on Blanding Blvd. When they first opened they had mostly things from retail store. Now they seem to have more donated items. They were having a 50% off books sale. I know, I just bought 21 books, but a deal is a deal. I found 8 books and the husband found a PS2 game. When we brought it home it didn’t work. Oh well, we get great deals and things usually work for us.

I was happy to come home with a good bounty. Now to list some books and hang up the new pictures.
