Goodwill, Savers and an amazing find!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you about my latest thrift shopping adventures. Including one item that I’m very happy that I found. On Thursday I went on a quick trip to Goodwill. I I got some great items including a Melissa and Dad craft kit, a Barbie book that still had the stickers in it, and a set of Disney markers that came from the theme parks. I’m excited to use the Melissa and Doug craft kit that I got. I love the wooden heart-shaped beads. On Friday after work I went to Savers. When I walked over to the toy section I saw a large horse toy on the shelf. I wonder if it could be an American girl horse toy because it seemed large enough. I went over and looked at it and sure enough the tag on the leg said American girl. I was so excited! I love finding American Girl products but I was super excited to find this one. I think I’m going to do a photo shoot with my dolls and the horse. My other savers finds include some ’90s Beanie Babies, some Barbie dolls including one with a really awesome hair, a spin art kit, a set of Lisa Frank erasers,and a Christmas plate from the ’70s. I had a lot of fun at Savers and I spent more time there than I thought I did. I wonder what my next big thrift find will be.

Another Goodwill adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I visited one of my favorite places,the Goodwill! Every other Thursday I go with my dad to drop off food at our church. The food is used to help feed the homeless. While my dad gets the food at the store I like to go to the Goodwill nextdoor and see what I can find. On this shopping trip the first thing I found was a bag of horse toys .They were so cute, I just had to take them home. My other finds were a Disney purse, a Build a Bear cat, a Barbie doll still in the box and a snow globe. I’m happy with my finds. What have you found at thrift stores lately?

My wonderful and amazing trip to Savers!

Hello,my bucket list friends. Yes,I’m back with another post about thrift shopping. As you can probably tell from the title of this post I’m super excited to tell you all about it. On Sunday I went to Savers with my mom. When I go to Savers I look for books first. I did find some great books on this thrift shopping trip including a ghost writer book, American Girl books and a candy fairy book. Then I went over to the toy section where I got two Barbie dolls, two My Little pony toys and two Beanie Babies. When I was looking in the arts craft section I found two different craft kits. The first one was a paint your own trinket box kit that had not been opened. The other one was a Barbie jewelry box kit from the ’90s. I was super excited to have found it. I don’t usually get clothes when I go to Savers because they tend to be more expensive than other thrift stores. However this time I did find a candy cane printed sweatshirt that was super cute and for a good price. I was super happy about this thrift shopping haul and I still am. The Barbie jewelry box that you could paint was my favorite find from this trip and I’m going to write a blog post about painting it soon. You never know what you will find when you go thrift shopping. I wonder what will bey next favorite find!

My latest thrift shopping fun!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Going thrift shopping has quickly become of my favorite hobbies. I’ve been working on building up my beanie baby collection. I had so many when I was a kid and I wish I would have kept them. Anyways I’m also on the lookout for books from American Girl and Mary-kate and Ashley. I’ve been pretty successful with finding items that I’m interested in adding to my collection. I wanted to share my two latest thrift shopping trips with you. The first one was in Saturday to a local thrift store they have very limited hours so I don’t get to go very much. However I did have some time before my shift on Saturday so I was able to go look for some treasures. I found some Mary-Kate and Ashley books as well as an American girl book. I also found it a bag that had some Beanie Babies in it. Some other finds from that thrift shopping trip were a Barbie doll, some stickers and a bag of hair scrunchies. The next thrift shopping trip I wanted to tell you about took place on Tuesday. I had to get some shirts for my new job but of course I had to look for some fun items to add to my collection as well. I was excited to find two wellie wisher dolls from American Girl they had been well played with and needed some TLC but I was still very excited to have found them. I also found some really awesome ’90s Beanie babies to add to my collection. I was really hoping to find some while I was there and I was not disappointed. I also got a pink basket for Easter as well as some books including a Disney trivia book. What are some fun things that you have found while through shopping?

Starting off February with a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday, I had the day off so I decided to go to Savers. When I go to Savers I head right to the book section. However since it was senior discount day there was a pretty long line outside. My mom was with me so we were able to get the discount as well. After waiting in line I went to the book section. During this thrift shopping trip, I got books from some of my favorite series such as American Girl and Candy Fairies. In addition to some great books I found two Barbie dolls to add to my collection, some art kits and a Build a Bear Fluttershy. I’ve been trying to collect all the main My Little Pony Build a Bear toys and now I only have one more left to find. At the end of this thrift trip while my mom was in line to pay I went to look at the shoes. When I was looking at the shoes in my size, I saw a pair that really caught my eye. The shoes were covered in pictures of animals! It was a very successful thrift shopping trip. I was so happy that I found more candy fairies book I’ve been looking for those books for a while! I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.

First thrift trip of 2021

Hello, my bucket list friends last month I shared my last thrift shopping trip of 2020 with all of you. Now, It’s time to talk about my first thrift shopping trip of 2021. On January first I went to the same goodwill that I had gone to for my pervious thrift trip. They were having a new years sale so I was curious to see what deals I could find. I went later in the afternoon and I was happy to see that there was not a line outside. There was a good amount of empty shelf space just like the last time I was there. However I still found some great items. Some of my favorite finds from this trip are a picture frame craft kit, a lunch box that has the same pattern has my purse, and a TY beanie baby turtle. I also got a shirt that was originally from Old Navy. I can’t wait to rock it this year!

Thanks for reading.

Last thrift trip of 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I went thrift shopping for the last time in 2020! I went to one of my favorite Goodwill locations and I was surprised to see how empty a lot of the shelves were. However I was still able to find some great items. Some of my favorite items I found include a foam visor craft kit, two Christmas crafts kits that were both 50% off, an American Girl book and a pair of unicorn slippers. I wonder what I will find on my first thrift shopping trip of 2021.
