Ever since a friend introduced me to the absurd concept of the "haul" videos that litter Youtube - where some chirpy teenage girl shows you all the ridiculously unnecessary, expensive, and inappropriate items she bought at the mall with daddy's credit card - I've joked that I needed to do a thrift store "haul" video sometime, as a parody. I don't actually have the time or inclination to set up a video camera for such a silly thing right now, but I thought I'd share pictorially the results from a recent "lucky" trip to Goodwill I had.
Really, this is all just part of my plan to convince more people to start giving thrift stores a chance!
So, here we go..
Cute gray monster mittens ($2). Maybe Sly's hands will be big enough for them next year.
Cool ship picture printed on fabric ($1). I LOVE ship paintings. If we don't find a good place for this, I might take it up to our cottage at Lake Erie, as that seems a fitting place for it. It was priced at $5, but the lady marked it down because of some light staining.
Total cost: $12.22.
I'm aware that these items may not be everyone's style at all. But at Goodwill, one man's trash TRULY is another (wo)man's treasure. I was pretty pleased with everything, and it will all get good use. But don't say it's because my local Goodwill must be a "good one" or something. Not true! You just need to take the time to search, and be willing to check back often.
