today's thrift scores

First, ANOTHER tiki mug. This was $3.99 and I'm pretty sure I've never paid $3.99 for a tiki mug in my life. That's highway robbery!

I was feeling a little bitter over the price, but of course I wasn't going to turn down a tiki mug. Then my thrifting luck changed...

Arabia of Finland 1960's pitcher- 8" high, completely adorable, and $5.99 at Goodwill.

There's one on ebay right now. 11 bids, the current price is $97. That's CRAZY!

Have you made any good thrift scores lately?

Back from vacation in the CA desert and ready for a little show and tell.

Boron, CA

Two words: NOT ME.

One night I kept seeing a cute little snake popping out of a hole while I was trying to set up camp. Cute little snake turned out to be a Mojave Rattlesnake. Oops, my bad.

Bagdad Cafe, actually in Newberry Springs.

Get out of the way, ROAD HOG!

I couldn't figure this one out. What does it mean? Is it parking for Gary Busey? I wouldn't want to upset Mr. Busey by taking his parking spot, so I hightailed it out of there.

What are you up to this summer?
