So, on Tuesday I went thrifting. I've only been a couple of times so far this year and turned up nothing.

Tuesday did the grocery shopping, then stopped by the vet. It was near the thrifts. Of course I had to go!

This is what I found as my first finds for 2014:

BLOKUS for $1.99
It was bagged! A good sign. Turned out to be complete and used, but still usable. It will be donated to my wife's school.

SCRABBLE X 2 --> for $1.99 each
So lovely. Lovely smooth older tiles. Yes, they will sell and hopefully pay for everything else and then some. Nice!

A collectible classic. The sales slip inside says it sold for $20.00 way back in 2003! It looks complete but.....

Ewwww, they're like dried up little worms!

I got it cleaned up and its now ready to go!


YIN YANG for $1.99
I took a chance because it was cheap looking - very cheaply made. Yet it is lovely. A co-op abstract from 1983! Imagine that!
