This is the traditional monthly NON-Game Thrift Store/Bargain Finds list.

Wait a minute. That's not a game! Oh well. Let us oooh and aaah over what you've found.

As usual, this list starts empty, but it grows as folks add to it. If you can, try to post a snapshot of your find with your entry!

Last month's NON-Game Thrift Store/Bargain Finds list:
Just shift the Picasso's aside and be amazed by the collection of valuables we tend to pick up.

7 80's action figures. 4 are golden girls, 2 are she-ra and one I can't tell. She is wearing a white and gold fantasy type leotard, urg style boots, plastic brown hair in a bun and has really muscular legs like an ice skater. Any ideas?


$6 for the lot.

Finally found a copy of Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway. Been working on "Behind These Hazel Eyes" for my set list for a while. Good to actually have the whole CD now. $3

One shiny metallic blue w/ black pinstripes zoot suit, by Falcone. And it fits like it was made for me.
OK, maybe not exactly a zoot suit, but it does have humongous shoulder pads. Brand new with the manufacturer's tags, never been altered, so the pants have a 42" inseam and are unfinished at the bottom. A quick alteration and a bit of a press, and I'm all set for Halloween.

$7.50 at Goodwill.

Yesterday at GW I picked up a pair of TOC 7x50 field binoculars for $8. They have Porro prisms (offset tubes) and individual lense focus. The thin textured casing wraps needs to be glued down on the top, and the wraps are cracked on the bottom where the thumbs go. But otherwise these are very clean and in excellent shape for being stamped "Made in Occupied Japan."

Since I am still recovering use of my arm and hand, I decided I needed an apple peeler. Ever the optimist, I went to St. Vincent - no luck. So, down the road to Salvation Army

Sure enough on the 3rd shelf - there it was...the Deluxe Applemate 3 Apple Parer/slicer. $3.04

It's going to get a workout tomorrow!



Just found it on Amazon for $29.95

I've been lucky enough to have found many valuable things in my time thrifing. Games, crystal stemware which is hideously overpriced in the stores, cashmere coats, a Bose "Wave Radio", but this one might be the "coolest".

Today I found a Cambridge Soundworks CD player/radio at Goodwill. It's an older model but I'm realllllly enjoying my Alice Peacock CD right now.

Come on audiophiles out there, back me up on this one.

I usually look in the costume jewelery section for cheap necklaces that have interesting beads that i can take apart for my craft projects. This time I found a unique, beautiful necklace make of half a dozen different types of semiprecious stones like garnet.lapis,moonstones and interesting handmade sterling silver beads.for the same price as the cheap plastic bead necklaces. Score.

We were watching Big Bang Theory the other night, one of the scenes where Sheldon is doing his laundry with the blue plastic shirt folder, and Sam said, "I want one of those." Last night when I was at the Rochester Goodwill, I saw two - the larger one was slightly heavier duty, and "flipped" nicer, so I spent the extra dollar and got it for Sam ($4.99)



I got an aqua globe for $3.99

$2.99 @ GW. Lego set #3825 Spongebob and the Krusty Crab.



Opened, and not taped (DANGER!) but when I looked inside, the first thing I saw was Mr. Krabs. I figured for $2.99, if a few pieces were missing, the minifig alone would be worth it. Got home, put it together, and the only thing missing was a 1x2 standard blue brick. Hmmm... not sure if I have any of those!
