Sad World

There was a shooting today in our town. 4 people are dead including a police officer. They haven't released any names and the shooter is in custody. The first shots were fired at a bank near a Chinese restaurant we were going to go to today. Instead we went to another buffet a few miles away. When we were leaving, a friend of Will's came into the restaurant and told him there was a shooting there. I kind of blew it off because that sort of thing seldom happens here. When we got to the parking lot, we saw a bunch of police cars going down the road to the apartment complex the shooter was holed up in (we didn't know this at the time) It's pretty scary that sort of thing can happen here.

Thrift Store Finds

I found a few good things this week at the thrift stores. My favorite find is this hand painted tile table. I spotted it at St Vinnie's in the children's section. I looked at it, debated for a minute, walked away and then decided I needed it in my life. Who wouldn't right?

My second favorite thing was this mirror shelf. My dear hubby put it up yesterday. I also got the mini lava lamp at Goodwill and a pocket Jesus.

Scrub a dub dub

Today, I spent 3 hours scrubbing down about 10 big toys at the thrift I volunteer at. I don't mind cleaning the toys but damn, at least wipe them down before donating them. One toy was so bad, the lady marking books told me I should throw it away as it was far too gone. I managed to save it with a lot of spic and span and scrubbing.

What's That Smell?

The people who go through the donations at the thrift store I volunteer at are called grubbers. They sort the donations and put them in the proper bins to be priced.

Today, I was was pricing kitchen wares and a grubber drops a big box on my table. She knows I also price toys and she says there are a bunch of toys in here if you want to go through it. She then states something in the box stinks and she will throw it all out. I said let me look first because I saw some Lalaloopsy dolls and MLPs

I come across one of those plastic sandwich containers and for some dumb reason, I opened it up. That was the source of the smell. Someone donated a moldy sandwich!

I did find a Charlie Mccarthy doll and another Big Hug Mug though.

What's Happening

Hey guys. Anyone out there? Sorry I have been MIA for the past few months. I started volunteering at a thrift store and have been quite busy. My dear brother in law passed away in November and I'm still trying to accept that and in the process, I've seen to have lost my love for blogging.

Anyways, here are some things I found recently at the thrift store or estate sales.

Pyrex and a yellow cart. I was third in line at this estate sale. My sister was second and she grabbed the cart for me.

Two paintings by the same local artist


A creepy clown

A Woodstock glass (sold)

A Ziggy mug and Cincinnati Where Pigs fly mug

and a cat figurine (sold)
