An amazing Goodwill trip!

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Thursday, I went thrift shopping! I had not planned on going on thrift shopping that day but my dad had to get some items from the store next door. As you can probably tell by the title of this post it was a really good day for me at the thrift store! One item that I was really excited about finding was the game pretty,pretty princess. I remember this game from when I was a kid and I have been looking for it when I go thrift shopping. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. I haven’t counted all the jewelry but it from what I can tell it’s all there or mostly all there at least. This was a great find! Another great find from this thrift trip was a blanket that had some characters from The Lion King two printed on it. I also got some Tennie Beanies and a Barbie calendar. I also really love the plush purple cat that I got. It’s originally from Build a Bear Workshop and it has a cute little bow on its tail! I wish all thrift shopping trips could be like this.

Goodwill haul and more!

Hello,my bucket list friends it time for another post about some things I found at the thrift store but it is also time for me to talk about all the random things on my mind. Let’s start with the Goodwill first. I went to the Goodwill on Sunday it wasn’t planned ahead of time we just kind of ended up there. It was a good day for American Girl items I got two activity kits and two books. I really love the American Girl quiz book that I got. I also got a mermaid Barbie doll. It was a good day at Goodwill! As for the other things on my mind let’s start with Vocal Media. I recently published two new posts on Vocal Media. One is a fictional blog about a hair stylist who loves to take pictures and write poems the other is a post about money. Click on the links below if you would like to read them.

Ok…. what should I talk about next? Oh! I’m having a lot of fun posting reels on Instagram! I like posting videos of throwing bath bombs into the bathtub and they actually get a good amount of views! I also love posting animal videos and art videos as well! If you would like to see my reels my Instagram username is summerrockstar.

On Tuesday, I got three Kinder Joy eggs that were Easter themed. I love seeing different themed eggs from Kinder. I wonder what fun theme I will see next.

Thanks so much for reading this post!

My latest shopping fun 1/22

Hello, my bucket list friends! Shopping has been one of my favorite hobbies for years now! The past two days I’ve gotten to do some fun shopping and I wanted to share it with you. On Friday I went to a local toy store. I was happy to see that the store had some items on sale that were displayed towards the front of the store. From that display, I got a jar of bath bombs that have prizes inside. I’m excited to see what prizes are in the bath bombs. I love getting Breyer horses at this toy store. This time I got three small blind bag horses and a horse you can paint. I also got a sea animal art kit. I’ll let you know when I paint the horse! Yesterday, I went to the Goodwill. There were a lot of items to look at. I  was able to find some items that I was excited to  take home with me. Some of my favorite items that I got yesterday were a My Little Pony Monopoly board game, a Barbie doll that was wearing a very pretty dress,a Build a Bear brand bunny plush, a twisty pet that was still in the package, a Lisa Frank coloring book, an American Girl activity book, a Barbie story book with stickers, and a lamp for my desk. It was a successful thrift shopping trip. I need to start working on my reading goal for this year maybe I will start with some of the books I got yesterday.

Yesterday’s Goodwill trip

Hello,my bucket list friends! As you can tell from this post’s title I went shopping at the Goodwill yesterday. It’s no secret that I love thrift shopping and I get pretty excited whenever I go so without further delay let’s dive into yesterday’s shopping trip.

 

Yesterday’s Goodwill trip

I’m going to start this off by saying that I got an unopened Melissa and Doug craft kit! It was my favorite find of the trip but it was not the only Melissa and Doug item that I bought yesterday ,I also got a Melissa and Doug bead kit. As far as arts and crafts go in addition to my Melissa and Doug finds I got a Crayola craft kit as well. One of my main reasons for this shopping trip was to find a book for next month’s book club. I got a few books and I’m still deciding which book I want to read for my book club. Thrift stores are great places to find books because they usually have pretty low prices. I also got some new jeans and a shirt. It was a very successful thrift shopping trip.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Recently I did one of my favorite things, Thrift shopping! I didn’t get a lot of stuff but I did get some pretty great things that I can’t wait to tell you about so let’s go!

 

Goodwill Shopping adventure May 2020

One of my main goals for this shopping trip was to get some more craft kits. I’ve being doing a fair amount of craft kits lately and I don’t want to run out. I found a bundle of a few items that had a pack of fuzzy pencils on top but included two craft kits. One was a wooden airplane kit the other one was a clay art by number kit. Then I found a unicorn wind chime craft kit.  I was also hoping to find some American Girl books and I was excited to find one pretty quickly after I got to the book section. After the books I moved on to clothes where I got two shirts and a dress.It was an overall successful thrift shopping trip!

Thrift shopping is awesome !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As a lot of you probably know I love thrift shopping and I’ve been doing a good amount of it lately. I thought that it would be a good idea to write about why I love it so much . Here we go !

 

Thrift shopping is awesome !

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about thrift shopping is the excitement. When you walk into a thrift store you never know what you are going to find. Yes, it’s true that there have been sometimes when I have not found anything that I was really excited about on a thrift trip. On the other hand There have been times when I have walked away with lots of treasures ! Lately I’ve have some really good finds such as American Girl books , craft kits, Disney items , and more ! There is something truly special about the feeling you get when you find a really awesome item! The next thing I think about when I think of thrift shopping is the nostalgia of finding items that remind me of my childhood and even finding things that I had years ago. It is also a really awesome feeling when I find one of those nostalgic items. A well know benefit of thrift shopping is saving money! I have found some amazing deals ,I have also found things that I thought were priced on the high side. Overall I have been happy with the prices. If your looking to save money you should consider giving thrift shopping a try. When I go thrift shopping it feels like i’m going on a adventure. I love going thrift shopping with other people. I get excited for them when they find something that they are really excited about.  I can’t wait for my next thrift shopping trip !What are your favorite things about thrift shopping?

Two days of thrift shopping !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to go thrift shopping. Recently I got to go thrift shopping two days in a row and I can’t wait to tell you about the things I found . Here we go !

 

 

Two days of thrift shopping !

On Friday my friend and I went to a Good Will that is pretty new. I’ve heard it also the biggest Good Will in our area. I have been to this location before and I really like how clean and organized it is. I went looking for craft kits first and I found this really cute craft kit where you make animal faces from paper plates and stickers I haven’t done this kit yet but I’m looking forward to it. I also got an American Girl book, a Disneyland picture frame, some very cute PJ pants and more. On Saturday I worked early and got off in the afternoon. When my mom picked me up I asked her if we could go to the Goodwill that is a few miles down the road from my work. I have also been to this location before. I’m super excited to tell you that I found something really cool at this thrift store. When I was looking in the toy section I was so thrilled to see a Lisa Frank Game that I had as a kid. It’s a fishing style game where you use magnets to collect as many Lisa Frank  characters as you can before the timer runs out. The box was still in plastic so I knew that it was a complete set. I also found a Disney World shot glass from 2000 and a American Girl book. I was very happy with my two days of thrift shopping and I hope to do it again sometime. Rock On – Christina Epperly

Days like this :)

Hello, my bucket list friends! Do you ever have day where you wish that every day could be like that, well last Wednesday was like that and I can’t wait to tell you why. Here we go!

Days like this 🙂

Last Wednesday I had the day off just like I had the week before. (You can read about the week before HERE) I started off the day with no plans then my awesome friend Amy asked if I wanted to hang out with her. Since it can be hard to find time to hang out when your an adult , I jumped at the chance! We didn’t have any solid plans when she picked me up but we ended up doing some of our favorite things. We went to Jack in the box for shakes ,then we headed off to Goodwill to see what we could find. We both found some really cool things. Amy found a bunch of fun stuff for her class room as well as two cute pairs of jeans. I found a My Little Pony dvd that was brand new, a craft kit where you melt beads to make a sun catcher, a photo album and four shirts. We probably spent close to two hours in the Goodwill looking for treasures. I love days like this when you get to be with amazing people and do fun things, I love the days when I can say yes to a spontaneous invitation. What kind of days do you like best ?   Rock On- Christina Epperly

Good Will trip 5/11/2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! This weekend I went on a shopping trip to one of my favorite stores the Goodwill ! I thought it would be fun to show you what I got so let’s get to it !

 

Good Will trip 5/11/2019

Whenever I go thrift shopping I have a few things I keep an eye out for. My Little Pony and Disney items are always at the top of my list but I have gotten much more picky about the things I end up bringing home with me. On this trip the one Disney item I ended up buying was a cute shirt with Mickey and Minnie on it. I tried on a bunch of other shirts but this one was my favorite. I found two My Little Pony Items the first one was an  Equestria girls Celestia doll. I was very excited when I saw her because she is more of minor character in the the world of My Little Pony so she can be harder to find. The 2nd My Little Pony item I got was a book full of short My Little pony stories. In addition to those items I found a new pair of shorts of summer , a very cool California shirt with a bear on it and , a Los Angles Mug ! It was a pretty successful Thrift store trip and I can’t wait to see what I find next time !

Rock on – Christina Epperly
