Thrifted Sunday on Wednesday

OK so I'm NOT completely caught up from my trip yet but I am trying valiantly to get there. I finanlly put my suitcase away, which seems silly because I'll be gone again in two weeks. Yes, Yes I am going to the FoodBuzz Festival, thankyouverymuch. I wish I had a private jet to get me there or thousands of airline miles but next year I'll have a free ticket. I'm not caught up which is why I'm throwing a thrifted post your way on a Wednesday, not Sunday.

Unlike Selena of Apron Thrift Girl, I DID go thrifting in San Francisco while there for BlogHer Food. We hit up Irvin, Mr. Jack Honky, and forced him to tell us where the thrift stores in the Mission were but then Biggie came to our rescue and actually drove us to two stores. OK how cool that the stores are even open on Sunday, channeling my small town girl amazement there, sorry. So we shopped quickly and I found two books that turned out to be VERY HEAVY (because long story short I left them in Biggies car and had to carry them ALL over the city the next day, DAMN those books!) and two little pieces of Christmas kitsch.




Then I want to show off my husband's treasure:

A Motion Computing tablet, one of the best for free hand drawing apparently. We already listed it on ebay to help offset some traveling expenses.

Have you been thrifting lately? What are you looking for? I need pants for a 7 year old, specifically pants made for a 7 year that will fit him. Seems like the manufacturers don't really make pants for that age group, they are either the 4-7s that are too short and tight or the 8-18s which are about teenager size. **sigh** If they could make them indestructible that would be keen, too.

I'm linking in to Apron Thrift Girl Thrift Share Monday, check her out!

Peace and Love-

  1. Lands End, totally worth the drive into the big Sears because they guarantee them & I know that your boy does the very exact same thing to the knees of his jeans that mine do. And worth the $$$.
