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!

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.

Savers at night

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I had a night time thrift shopping adventure. I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you so here we go!

I had a long day of work on Saturday but I was in the mood to go thrift shopping. I’m working at different location now and it’s pretty close to the Savers that I go to. What I love most about that Savers location is the books! My mom and I love finding fun books to read. I got off work a half an hour before Savers closed but I figured that would be just enough time to find some good books! As soon as I was off work I hurried to get my stuff and get out the parking lot where my mom was waiting for me. It was a short drive and we parked quickly. As soon as we started walking towards the store someone in the parking lot told me to hurry. I thought it was funny. When we walked in the store an employee told us we had 20 minutes. That’s was good enough for me. On our way back to the book section I saw this beautiful carousel toy . I told my mom to go ahead while I took a look at it. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted it. I met my mom over in the book section and we got right to work finding books we wanted. After finding some books I wanted. I went to the toy section. I got a bag of 101 Dalmatians toys and a My Little Pony Equestria Girls doll. When I returned to the book section my mom had found some more books. I took a look at the books again and I found even more books that looked good. I even found some books that I’ve been wanting to read. While in the book section we were told that the store was closed and that it was time to get in line. I was really happy with my finds during this short shopping trip.

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.

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?
