Long time no blog. That’s what happens when one takes a much-needed vacation! Fortunately, though I didn’t blog during vacay, I did THRIFT on my road trip and found some great pieces! Road trip thrifting is so fun! Most towns have a little community thrift shop and you can find bigger thrift chain stores in larger centers. I hit as many of both as I could along the road, bargaining baseball games (etc.) for thrift stops – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do! And now I share part one of my little thrift shop exploits… Does that sound scandalous?!
The thing about little thrift shops is that they are often run by volunteers, benefit the local community and have limited or irregular hours. And so it was that all the thrift stores in Anacortes were closed on our first trip into town. Anticlimactic. But
we had to do laundry I’m dedicated so we went back the next day and hit three little thrift shops.
Little thrift shops are worth a stop for the fitting rooms alone – they’re always interesting. This one was in the bathroom – convenient! My daughter was smitten with the fish-decal soap dispenser.
We ended up taking home some books including mad libs which kept the kids occupied for miles! Next stop, just down the road…
This thrift shop had no clothing BUT they had a baseball for my son so it was a win… until July 3rd when said baseball rebounded onto my face but that’s another story.
The Kiwanis Shop seemed to be the go-to place for household items. I was still itching for some clothing finds so we headed even further down the streets of Anacortes…
This little thrift store had a great selection of pretty much everything…
So in one little town I found a great dress and my kids found books, games and sports equipment.
BUT it can’t compare to Part Two of my Little Thrift success so stay tuned!
To Be Continued…
I love your thrifting adventures! Makes me want to road trip!!!
