When I got to the door there was a sign that said "all clothes on hangers 50% off" 0.0 and naturally I thought Thrift Store Win! I ended up not buying any clothes because I have no real closet space, but I did kindly load myself up with a few other things. Books being a huge portion of this haul. SO Angels of Mercy has a books/media room and while drifting about in it I saw another sign... "Bag of Books- $2" and considering one paperback was $0.50 and a hardback was $1 it only made sense for me to get a bag. Even if I only found like 4 books it would have been a good deal. I ended up with 11! Slight overkill, but whatevs!
After the book room, I ventured over to the bags and purses. I got one tote for $4. It's huge and bright yellow... my own bit of sunshine ^.^ It just needed a bit of a clean, but other than that it was in great condition. I'm now carrying it as my work bag and lemme tell you I love me some big bags! (I almost said I like big bags and I cannot lie... ::rolls eyes at self:: -___-)
I also picked up a few things for the kids at work: a couple puzzles and some crayons. Just cuz I'm nice like that.
All things considered, I spent $9 before tax for 11 books, 2 puzzles, 2 new boxes of crayons, and a large tote/weekend bag. Oh! They gave me a free loaf of bread too. :) This thrift trip really brought back my love for independent thrift shops. I mean, I do enjoy shopping at Goodwill, Salvation Army, and St. Vincents Du Paul's, but there's just something about mom/pop/church thrift stores that feels so nice... Am I crazy... probably not ^.^
