This week we went to two thrift stores. On Tuesday, we had to go to Carrollton, Georgia. On the way home, we were passing by the 7 Day Flea Market and Discount Groceries on Hwy 27. I have been wanting to go in there since the first time I saw it, so we stopped there for a minute. It turned out to be mostly junk, and lots of cases of damaged grocery items. There wasn’t much that I would buy, and we won’t be going there again. It wasn’t a complete loss, though, because I got a jar of McCormick Gourmet Collection Parsley Flakes and a jar of McCormick Gourmet Collection Saigon Cinnamon for $1 each, and a can of icing for $1. (That stuff is good on ice cream.)
Then on Wednesday, we had to go to Gadsden, Alabama to the VA Clinic for Fabgrandpa’s semi-annul checkup for his thyroid meds. We forgot about the time difference between Georgia and Alabama, so we were more than an hour early for the appointment. The American Thrift Store was across the parking lot from the clinic in Rainbow City, so we decided to stop in to see what they had to offer.
This store was huge. It was mostly clothing–what seemed like acres of it. But, if you take your time, you can find a bargain or two in there. It just takes looking around.
This sofa and chair could have been a bargain at $124, but you had to see it in person to appreciate how very yellow green it was. Sort of the color of snot. Yuck!
This store did have some other furniture that looked pretty good, but the prices they had on it was too much for used stuff. One coffee table had a price tag of $274 on it! Really?
Here are my purchases for the day: 2 small goblets (or wine glasses?), an embroidery pattern, 2 and part of another cones of thread, and some bra band extenders. Total spent: $2.74. Those cones of thread are very expensive in a fabric store. Joann has them on sale this week for $11.99 each.
