Discovered some great thrift shops

Today I had lunch with a friend and them she took me to her favorite thrift shops. In talking with her recently I had learned she liked to go to thrift stores and asked if she would like to give me a tour. She suggested lunch too and it was fun to deepen my friendship with her.

We went to 4 stores and I would definitely go back to 3 and check out the clothing only sister shop of one of them and another consignment store that only handles furnishings. 

I really was a big spender $2.07 for a big bag of bows, 9 Christmas cards and a roll of wrapping paper. I was almost out of all 3 and have enough to wrap gifts for several Christmases now and bows that can be used for all occasions. Not what was on my list but then I never thought that thrift shops would have them.

My favorite shop is the one that raises money for pet rescue organizations and has a store dog. I have been wanting to go there and was happy that the quality and variety of items was great. That will be my first return stop.

As a bonus, my friend was looking for cloth napkins for her Quaker Meeting's hospitality house. She'll take the 11 I am decluttering so they have a good next home.

  1. A "store dog?" Sounds right up my alley! :)

    1. Mine too! A rescue of course. They also had a kitten available for adoption. My dog would like a kitten buddy but we think that is not in our plan.

  2. I used to like to go to thrift stores; but now I've got the equivalent of about three thrift stores in my basement!

    1. That certainly can be the result if you aren't careful. I'm just getting things I would buy anyway so not a problem LOL.
