Thrift Shopping


This week we decided to take our show on the road. We walked down to the boardwalk and had lunch on the patio on 10th Street. Jennifer had the most delicious looking chicken salad sandwich. I had a hamburger. Minus everything but the burger patty. And a sugar-free Red Bull. It was too hot for coffee so I gave it a try.

Red Bull. An acquired taste.

We enjoyed the beautiful day, and did our critiques facing the ocean. We got through two chapters each – the usual – then hit the thrift store.

I don’t know the last time I laughed so hard for so long. We tried on a lot of shirts – difficult to do without a change room.

Yellow. Terry cloth. Crotch snaps. Omg.

But we are creative people. We found a lot of… interesting… clothing.

And a lot of terrific buys too. It is a lot more work to shop in a thrift store, but if you search hard enough you are bound to come away with a few treasures.

Looks like Jennifer covered the food this week in her post. Next time, I will delight you with The Tale of the Stinky Noodles.

These noodles stink!

It’ll be fun. Really.

Have you had any adventures in a thrift store lately? Find any treasures you’d like to tell us about? Please do, and leave us a link to your latest blog post too, so we can check you out. Thanks!

    So much fun to read you blog. What great friends you are. It is a treasure. Our Newcomer group had one luncheon dedicated to thrift store buys. Participants had to wear their treasures and prizes were awarded for 5 or 6 categories..exp. best dressed worst dressed …who spent the least and bought a whole outfit..You get the picture. ” Thrifty” shopping is rewarding. Keep up the good writing.
