Thrifting Adventures

I almost left the Salvation Army in freaking tears today...
 (Y IN THE WORLD R THEY SO EXPENSIVE?)

I spy with my Gucci Glasses... Possible Fabulous Additions to my home!
I spy with my Gucci Glasses....
Possible Prices to cause a SERIOUS Raid in the Common Wealths Salvation Army

First Up... I NEED NEED A COUCH!!!!
And I'm not afraid to pull out some fabric and A staple Gun and Get Busy!
But 199.99!!! R you kidding me?
ugh! rolling my eyes!
The shape of this couch..... Breaks my damn heart that I had to leave her behind!

DO YOU SEE THAT STAIN!?
WHO THE HELL IS PAYING 200.00 for this Dingy Couch
Nevertheless LOVED THE SHAPE!

LOVE THE ART DECO PIC
would've looked FABULOUS On my Art Wall
But 29.95
For a picture!!!!!?????

I got so disgusted with the prices I got tired of taking pics of the possibilities....
UNTIL!!!!!!
I FOUND MY LOVER!
And yes he was 24.95.. I didn't want to pay that much for him!
But if you knew how long I'd been stalking the net for him you would'nt be mad

Meet Luke!!!!
He's my LOVER... DON'T Tell my Husband

I have to agree with you. Some of the thrift stores (Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) can be a bit overpriced. I tend to think it's what city you live in because I've seen other bloggers getting stuff for $.99 cents whereas here (in NY) it would be more like $9.99.

What gives?

I've got the same thing going on at our local Goodwill. I'm glad there are a few mom and pop thrift stores popping up everywhere, they DO have better prices. I am in love with that first couch, so nice!
BTW we have the same stove ;)
