One of our stops this weekend was a place called Thrift World. It was a really big building, so nothing was crowded and they had a huge selection. I am a big fan of thrift stores, but of course I freak out inwardly about bed bugs being there.
I found two things: a sweater for me and a jacket for Lloyd. One of my favorite things is to walk by the sweaters and try to guess if they are made of natural or man-made materials. I saw one and thought it must be wool….. and it was cashmere! It’s a drape-y style that is too short to wear in public, but it’s just right for lounging at home and petting my super-soft sweater! New, it would have cost well over a hundred dollars, I got it for four. (No photos – Lloyd has my iPad now. I did upload the following last night, though.)
Lloyd’s jacket is a triumph! It’s a Beyond Clothing military-grade wind shirt that is water repellent. It is super-thin and has a stowaway hood, and it can pack into its pocket. I just picked it out because it seemed so light and useful, but when I looked it up online, this thing is crazy. It’s part of a clothing system to keep you warm and dry in the wild …. and I got it for eight dollars! Here are some photos of it on websites:
So, all in all, I am pleased with the haul!
