We've had more snow this week. It's been great.
I made a stop at a thrift shop while searching for some props for an upcoming Christmas video (be sure to check out previous post of R-E-S-P-E-C-T video) when I noticed all the Christmas decor on sale.
Seeing all of these Christmas items for sale at a thrift store caused my emotions to take a roller coaster ride. At first I was awed at the amount of items available. Then I was saddened for all these once treasured items that had been discarded. For instance, who gives away Babies First Christmas ornaments? You know there has to be a sad story behind that one.
As I walked around snapping my photos (no one tried to stop me) I noticed at what a bargain all these items were being sold. Duh! It's a THRIFT STORE!
If I wasn't on such a strict budget myself I would have been tempted to pick up a few things. I noticed this sweet little ceramic box....
I turned it over to look at the price tag.........$1.99.
It seemed to me that after all a thrift store is a great place for discarded Christmas items to spend time between owners. Much better than the dump. And I also realized that Shopco and Target aren't the only places to find a bargain.
But, a person may want to pass up on some of the offerings.........
Not sure anyone would appreciate used Christmas boxers. Actually, now that I think about it, they probably haven't been used at all!
