Ah I just LOVE finding good deals :) I don’t get to go to the thrift stores like I used to, I am always too busy with work, kids, etc, etc. But today I had to go to look for a jacket for my son, so off I went. While he was browsing the clothes I asked where the cookbooks were. I was absolutely delighted to find 16 cookbooks dating back to the 50s and 60s! What FUN! But wait, there’s more…
After finding the cookbooks I wandered over and found a Pampered Chef large tart pan, a nut cracker (I needed one!), a cookie cooling rack and 3 stainless steel mixing bowls. Yay! So we left the thrift store with all of the goodies above, PLUS three shirts and a belt for $30.23! BUT WAIT… there’s more!
Later in the afternoon I hit another thrift store and found a few more goodies. I was actually on the lookout or a wok. I was rather surprised to find a scarce shelf in the pots and pans area. Turns out they had a 50% off sale today and I didn’t know about it, so they got cleaned out. Grrrr! Ah well, I still found a few things. This store’s cookbook collection wasn’t nearly as good as the other store, but I did grab a Woman’s Day cookbook from the 70s and another large tart pan with a different design that the first. BUT WAIT … THERE’S (al little) MORE! (LOL)
My final cool find was this nifty bread maker! I asked them to plug it in to be sure it worked and it did. I checked all the controls and they seemed fine, so it came home with me. No wok, but that gives me an excuse to visit yet another day! The grand total for this store (after the 50% discounts) was $9.62. That included these goodies PLUS 2 shirts and a pair of jeans for my son.
Woo hoo! Today was a good day :) Now to find some fun recipes in all those books!
