i'm gonna pop some tags
The folks over at Young House Love had the brilliant idea of having a little unofficial Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. As you all know, I love a good thrift store visit. We live within 10 minutes of at least 8 different ones and they see me probably way too often. In addition to that, I think Macklemore is really cool. And he reminds me of my brother-in-law.
So when I saw this challenge, I had no choice but to accept.
I'm gonna pop some tags, only got 5 dollars in my budget ...
I could only imagine Colt's joy when coming home to $20 worth of thrift store purchases at the excuse of, "But the song says $20 and all the other bloggers are doing it!!" So I stuck with $5.
There were definitely some big, uh, large coats, none of which I needed. And none of which I wanted to try on during a quick 10 minute shopping spree with my 15 month old. No time for photo shoots. Things will be broken.
But this is what $4.88 bought me:
I gave my brother some identical glasses like this for Christmas a couple of years ago and I thought he needed 2 more. As for the metal tin, I wasn't for sure where or how I'd use it. But for now, it's holding our coffee and coffee filters.
Happy thrift shopping to you!
