Over the weekend we went to a nearby town to run a few errands. There is a thrift store in town that I've seen before and always wanted to check out, but we usually just keep driving. This time, I decided we would stop and see what the store had to offer. I'm so glad we did, because we found some cool items and got some incredible deals!
There was a lot of junk at the store, but we managed to find some diamonds in the rough. The first thing to catch my eye was a pitchfork. We've been on the lookout for one for a while now to help mix things around in our compost bin, but all the new ones I've seen are $25 or more and I didn't want to spend that much. This pitchfork didn't have a price tag, so we asked the guy who was selling it and he said it was only $3! It's in good working condition, so we snagged it.
I continued on to the kitchen section (my favorite part) so I could look for things to use in my food photos. I saw a couple of neat items and couldn't believe the prices - a white enamelware platter for $2, and a cute porcelain bowl for $2. Such a steal! You can see the enamelware platter in a photo in my last post :)
A really cool old soda crate caught our attention the most out of all the items in the store. No price on it either, so we found the guy selling it and he said he'd take $8. I was floored! Then he brought out another crate he had in the back. He said we could have this one for $8 as well and he even threw in all the soda bottles in the crate for free.
All in all, we were only out $23 for this shopping spree. I'd say we got some bargains! Few things I love more than a good deal. You can bet that the next time we're in town, we'll stop at this thrift store again - no more drive-bys!
