Thrift Shop Wednesday
My find on the left was tagged $1.99. The one on the right was $0.99. Then it was an additional 50% off since they were purple sticker items.
Since I usually spend the 2.5 hours that Ben is at preschool on Wednesdays looking at thrift shops, I have decided to make Thrift Shop Wednesday a regular feature on C & G.
Last week, I found lots of stuff for $12.
Today, I spend $1.50 on 2 great pieces at Goodwill on Bay Road in Webster.
I didn't have much luck anywhere else, but these two pieces both had purple tags and it was 50% off purple tags today. I did find some chapter books for Nick, though, at the Salvation Army on Ridge Road in Irondequoit. I got him 2 Geronimo Stilton books, 2 Boxcar Children books, and Ramona and Her Mother all for $2.00. I loved the Ramona books a child and Nick loved Henry Huggins, so I am thinking he'll enjoy more Beverly Cleary books.
I followed up my trip to Goodwill with a visit to Earthtones, which is located in front of Goodwill. I have been craving a chai latte for a long time and decided to order their Vanilla Chai Latte. It really is the best chair latte around. Yum! My tall chai latte was $3.00 plus tax.
By the way, if you're at Earthtones, you need to try their Moose Crossings coffee. It's a blend of Kahlua and chocolate and is so good!
I spent under $7 this afternoon on some great bargains and had some peace & quiet, too!
