Early November Findings

Surprise! It's November!
I can't believe how fast the year went by. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating New Years. In less than 60 days we will be celebrating 2014. I don't know what it is about 2014 that scares me but it does. But anyway...

 

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I haven't really found a lot of great items at the Good Will. I did find a partial deck of playing cards from Disney World but I didn't buy them because it was missing a few cards and had no price tag. I was afraid what they would charge for a deck without all the cards. I mean they have a broken Pooh Bear frame holder for $4.00. In my opinion, anything broken is worth $1.00 or less or don't even have it on the shelves.

Anyway, today's trip to the Thrift Store I found only this:



It's a storage case for lego/blocks. At least that is what it is now. I'm not sure what it originally held when it was new. I never seen one of them before and not sure whether it is from a local store such as Target or Kmart or from Disney parks or the Disney Store... (Can anyone help?) It was there a few weeks ago when I was thinking about buying a Disney World vacation dvd but decided to put back the DVD and this red box. At first today I didn't see it and a few minutes later someone put it on the shelves. So I bought it.

My trip on Monday to the thrift stores I found a few Disney items. I also found a projector screen for $8.99 and 2 Disney things so I used my $10.00 coupon and got everything for $1.50. yey.
First up, is Salt and Pepper Shakers. 



The original price tag red $3.99 but the day everything with a tag that wasn't blue was only 25% (and not 50% off). The salt and pepper shakers are in great shape! I was thrilled when I saw the box which was taped up. I had to open it to see whether or the shakers were in good condition. I really hate when they tape up the boxes. To me it either means that they are trying to pull a fast one, or something is broken inside. So I just open them up with my key:
The second Disney thing(s) I found was a bag of porcelain figures which only included 2 Disney figures Mickey mouse and Pooh bear...not pictured.  

Last week or so, I found (another) plate. This one is light blue while the other version I have is a black color with gold. I got this for only 50 cents. lol. yey.




That's about it for now. I also found a Princess Minnie from Disney on Ice. But I decided not to show it here.
