I took me a little shoppin’ trip on Friday. Yes I did. Not to my usual fav-OH-rite store, Tar-jay. No siree Bob, I found myself at the thrift store. Or as the Princess calls it, the “thrip store”.
Let me make this clear, I do not like the thrift store. I like to drop things off there. I do not shop there. Unless I’m on a mission. Which I was.
Overalls. I was looking for two gently used pair of kids overalls. Ones that could still be worn after a trip through through the sanitary cycle of my washing machine. Because I am a germophobe and I think the “thrip” store might have some germs.
I know you are just dying to know why I was looking for the kids some overalls. But you will have to wait until next week for that. So y’all come back now, ya’ hear?!
Clang, clang-clang, clang, clang-clang…..clang. clang. clang.
Entering the thrift store was like entering a different country, so I forced myself to wander around a bit and see just what this place was all about. After all, the parking lot was full and people were milling about with baskets! And I’m talking about shopping carts full o’
Once I started milling about, I was SO sad I didn’t have my camera. But I did have my cell phone camera! So I was stealthy about taking photos of some prize finds.
I wanted to stop and take a photo of the college kiddies looking for “70’s stuff”, but I refrained. But oh how I laughed at the things they had in their hands. I mean, who knew you could find PINK polyester pants in men’s sizes. I hope that boy won a prize!
Here’s my Top 5 Thrift Store finds (enjoy them because I am not going back anytime soon):
1. Memories anyone?
2. Thought I might buy this sweet, polyester seersucker twin-set, complete with elastic waist. I never know when I might need this for last minute cruise plans or a family reunion.
3. Ummmm, Mom, I’m not sure if you still have this robe?! I got this one in mint condition for you, just in case. I know how much you enjoyed it in the early 80’s. (too bad I can’t find a photo of you wearing yours)
4. Let me just say, THIS.IS.WRONG!
5. Heaven’s to Betsy. Do you see what this says?!
