Yeah!

Not Disney related, but yesterday I got DD a new with tags pair of Tom's shoes in her size for $5. Last week we got an almost new pair of Sperry's for her.

Both are the totally "in" brands around here.

I used to find tees a lot at our Thrift Store, but now they mark thru the Disney World (or whatever is on the front) with a Sharpie!

Who would want to buy that? Tell them to throw them away.

That is nuts! Here in Maine we get a lot of donations from LL Bean to our Goodwill stores, but they just mark out the inside label so they know it wasn't bought new at the store, so you can't return it for the lifetime guarantee.

I just love that. I'm in Montana so a WDW find is very rare. I found refillable mugs from years ago. I also found refillable mugs that match our set (my favorite souvie that goes to work/school with the whole family). Plus mugs from Blizzard Beach and Typhon Lagoon (never went to either so the mug was a fabulous find). All were .29 each. My cabinet is full (esp after our upcoming vacation when we get 5 more).

Dh broke the lid to my crockpot several weeks ago.
Today I ran into a local thrift store and sitting on a shelf was a crock and a lid that I was pretty sure went to my crock pot. Bought it for $3.50 and got home and yep, it's the right one! Yay, now I'm back in business.

I have a crock pot that is cracked...DS dropped a mug in it!!! I will be checking our thrift shops just in case I can find a replacement as you have! Never even occurred to me!

Last time I went, I found a refillable mug from 2007 (we went that year, but didn't get this mug, so I was happy to find it!), and I found this jug-type thing:



I have no idea what this is from, but it was only 99¢ and I love it, LOL. I'm think ing of doing a flower arrangement in it. The kids thought it would be good for popcorn ~ could that be what it is used for at WDW?

Holy mackerel, sorry about the giant picture!!

Looks like a popcorn container to me.

I used to loooove our thrift stores when we were stationed in PA and Maine. Always found great, name brand stuff and loads of Disney items.
In KY and now here in TX, not so much and they are way overpriced.
