One Man's Junk...

I love, love, LOVE the thrift store! I am a sucker for a bargain and love a good thrift store so (of course) one of the first places Mr. LH introduced me to in Colorado was a local thrift store (Unique Thrift Store). Oh...my! Considering I can outfit my children in decent clothes for the year for less than it would cost me for a couple of pairs of designer jeans for ONE child (the teen) at retail price, it's no wonder I keep going back!

I've been able to add on multiple pieces to the French White bake ware set Mr. LH got me for Christmas (Thank you, sweetie! You know how long I've been eyeballing those!) for less than the original set costs in the first place.

I've been able to find matching serving pieces for my Madeira dinner ware set that I got from my parents.

I held out on buying the latest Dan Brown book until I was able to get it in hardcover at the thrift store..for $2!

We were able to outfit the family (that's 5 people) in snow boots, snow pants, heavy coats, gloves and hats for about $50.

The kids have a fantastic wooden train table (with rolling drawers beneath it) for $4 that they use for their legos.

Once a month the thrift store has a 50% off sale for VIP members (you can sign up any day of the week except Thursdays - their regular VIP 25% off day). You don't know when 50% off day is, but they send an email out a couple of days before. Be sure you get there early, too! People are lined up at the door waiting for the doors to open!

I rave about this thrift store so much that Mr. LH suggested I start a blog about it. Or at least about the deals we find. Maybe I will...someday.

So Wednesday is college t-shirt day and you don't have anything to wear? No problem!

We need serving dishes for the graduation party? I know just where to get them!

Children's books starting at 69 cents a piece...
