Spring Blossom 441, 443 plus a random Fireking Bowl, SA Marked $39.99
Yes I understand people like it. But I do not understand is why anyone thinks when thrift store would get stuff for free and marked it so high that it is a good idea.
So I have taken to looking else ware. I scour craigslist. I find an add for a random box of Pyrex for cheap per piece. The woman accepts my offer and we are off to go get it. I have to drive by Angel's stadium on a friday up the 5. OMG the traffic! LA/OC traffic is the worst.
When we finally got to one of the last roads we drove by a thrift store sign. I told THM I would buy him a candy bar if he put up with me and went. I am not below bribing my kid.
|Box of Pyrex - Except loaf.|
I found the loaf for cheap at out local "Out of the Closet" I like that store for what they do. They provide low cost and free AIDS testing. They have a pharmacy inside the store and hand out condoms like they are candy. They help our community. They spread the world of protective sex. Education is key.
My Mom and I call this store "The store mom got stuck in a pair of pants" True story, she did get stuck in a pair of pants there. It was funny.
So in the box from craigslist was the 480 series set of Snowflake Garland. I only paid $25 for the whole box so those alone it was worth it.
There was also a Verde 471. That completes my Verde 470/480 Series.
There was also a red 501 that THM instantly stole. He has it on his craft table filled with balls of copy paper. Whatever floats his boat.
There were 3- 470 lids, 2 - green primaries (one unnumbered) , a Snowflake garland 444 and Horizon Blue 444. So a total of 13 items. Making each one about $1.93 a piece. Way cheaper than any thrift store around me. And I got to hit up a new store.
We pulled in I was like "HOLY SH!T, I hit the mother load of thrift stores." A whole plaza of thrifts.
I came out with nothing. But you can bet I will be going back alone to dig through everything. They were cheap. And packed.
By the way, THM got doughnuts for going in with me.
