Consignment Finds

It may surprise people to know I love shopping at consignment stores. I am what some may call finicky. I refuse to dine at certain restaurants. I won’t eat baked goods if I haven’t been to your house. For all I know you let your cat lick the spoon. I am also very particular about what hotels I book. Do you know they rarely wash that top blanket?

I have found some great deals at thrift stores. I once got an amazing vintage bracelet for $1.99 and a giant bin of Thomas the Tank Engine trains for $4.99. Thrift stores are also entertaining. Some of the s*** for sale is, well, s***. Here are a few things I discovered during my last trip:
