Thrift Scores!

Last weekend we drove down the road a ways to another small town to peruse their town library sale.  While we were at it, we also ate at the local pizza joint (complete with arcade games and a jukebox), and hit up a church rummage sale and a thrift shop.   We pretty much just made a day of it, because, hey, there's really not that much to do around here.

The pizza place was fun!  Lucy loved the crane machine and the "turkey" (the clucking chicken that spits out a plastic egg with a prize inside).  And I finally figured out why I like jukeboxes so much -- for only 33 cents, you determine what everyone else in the establishments has to listen to for the next 3 1/2 minutes.  The power!!!  Worth every penny.  (For the record, with my one dollar, I chose "Me and Bobby McGee" by Janice Joplin, "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies, and "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys. Mwahahaha!)

The book sale was pretty good for what it was.  I found two of these books there:

along with some other (less bizarre) books and a couple of VHS tapes (including a 90s Disney sing-a-long. Remember those?).

A few choice pages from the Disco Dancing book:

[Very informative]

[Oh don't worry. I've already submitted it to the "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks.]

And then we went to a church rummage sale and found that Grover book, and this:

Gah!  It's so cute!  What's that?  It just looks normal to you?

Well here I have inserted a spool of thread for scale.  It's tiny!  It's a tiny little suitcase!  A Lucy-sized suitcase!  See, I've got a plaid suitcase just like this one, but ya know, bigger.  Me-sized.  But this one is babby-sized!  Oh, and it was 50 cents.  Go me!

My favorite kind of shopping! What great finds.

(And isn't that - pardon me - "blog" wonderful? It makes me laugh so much.)
