A thrifty Tuesday..
Oooh cute shoes! (Goodwill 3.99..never been worn)
I have not blogged for a while about thrift store shopping. I'm such a sucker for the thrill of the hunt! While shopping at cute boutiques and Anthro run right up there with my fav's..I still crave Goodwill..such mystery..such possibilities!
Have I ever told you how I found a pair of Prada shoes at the downtown Seattle Goodwill?? It was several years back..
I let out a gasp..and looked around kinda like Gollum guarding his precious ring.
"It's mine, my precious." I hissed at the lady in the aisle across from me.
I turned around and sold those bad boys on e-bay (before craigslist) for a TON of money..I paid 8.99 for em..now I wish I had kept them..shoot.
I also have lots of stories about the "colorful" people that I've had the pleasure of meeting at various thrift stores through out the years..
Once there was a janitor that had been kinda creeping me out and following me around the store. It was a very rare evening out with The Dish and my newborn. At the time I was really really postpartum and burst into tears when I realized my new baby's heirloom blanket must have fallen off the car seat and was missing.
"I know that bad janitor stole it Trisha!" I sobbed.
"Ok I'm going to get it..and him!" She then turned heel, made a beeline to creepy janitor man.
"Give me the blanket..now!" The Dish firmly said, all puffed up like a cat trying to make herself appear larger.
The man then sheepishly reached into the rack of clothing where he had for some strange reason stashed the blanket.
But please don't let this deter you from all the treasures you might just find..
the good out weighs the uncomfortable..like 95% of the time.
Ok dear bloggy peeps tell me your favorite thrift store story.
I will post my favorite story along with some link love to your blog next Tuesday.
