Hello fellow thrifters! I had a very exciting power thrift after work today. I was out trying to get a Pyrex fix and came across a little gem that was much more exciting than I initially realized. I got to Goodwill and headed straight to the Pyrex aisle, quickly picking up an orange bowl immediately. I was happy, I got my fix, and it was my favorite color so the trip was not a waste. Next I headed to the coffee mugs, which Sister has taught me is a very important stop in my thrifting adventures. So, typically I buy anything that is a good price that is milk glass and I always buy anything with cartoon characters, but I am pretty sure I'm not the only one in my area that does this. I really haven't found that many mugs in my Goodwill, so it really can be discouraging. This time, right in the front I spot milk glass, so I quickly grab it and take a look. I see Snoopy, always a good sign. I see Fire King, even better. Then I see the statement, "Curse You, Red Baron?" Huh? I'm not a Snoopy fan, but I bet I can get $10 out of the little guy. I pay 99 cents and the husband and I are on our way.
So, we're driving and I'm already on Ebay trying to find this cup. I get all jittery because I find a red one go for $150, what a great pick! Down the road, I start to think, is this rare because it is orange? I do a little more searching and can't get the grin off my face. One sold last month on Ebay for $455! You have to be kidding me! So I ran home and put it on there right away, we will see what happens. I'm still enjoying telling my husband that I really like it and want to keep it for my coffee. Seeing the look on his face is priceless, so I will play on that one until it sells next week. Feeling lucky, and with our Honeymoon around the corner next week, this was a pleasant surprise addition to our trip fund! Thanks Goodwill!
