I love thrifting :)

I like the dress you found.  It's very cute.  I would love to go through the old medical text.  That kind of stuff fascinates me.

Cashmere sweaters. I've gotten two at thrift stores now, one for me and one for dd. Dd ruined hers though. She washed it in the machine :/

We got a rubber band gun, something I haven't seen since I was eight, and it was so much fun to play with!

We found a cheeseburger tin. Got it for my twin, he loves it, but we somehow ended up with it again.

Some cute Japanese tea cups.

8 pairs of True Religion Jeans in DD's size.  Nearly $200 jeans for $7.99 each, with the tags still on them!  Brand new!

We have a goodwill near here where everything is in giant bins.  It's best to wear gloves to sift through stuff. And not have morning sickness because the place smells pretty bad.   It's generally separated by adult clothes, kids clothes, toys, glass things, electronics, shoes, etc.  A person could spend hours there.  Almost everything is sold by weight and it's pretty cheap.  I was on a crafting kick where I was painting jars and vases and other containers to use as votive holder things and I came out of there with a cart load of glass containers one day for a few dollars.  I've seen some funny stuff there like weird costumes.  My best find was some old vintage wooden miniature Christmas ornaments that were inside of a box of cards. It was 3 cents.

Also my community has a virtual garage sale page on Facebook.  I got a cute little wooden doll cradle and a huge stack of kid's books for free and a like new toaster oven  for $5.

I got a 4 pack of brand new tervis tumblers that were custom.. for 3 $.

I have found high end hand bags there. I don't buy them. . But they exist.

I mostly look for books.

I might send s.o. to get some dresses/skirts this week.. much easier for me to get on right now.
