The Thrifting comic is by my friend, the amazing Birdie of "The Haiku Life". It depicts the Thrift Adventure unofficially dubbed the "The Murder City Thrift Adventure" which took place this past Saturday. Just like the comic says, I really haven't read the Harry Potter series, nor seen the movies. I'll stay under my cozy rock.
The Thrift Mecca: Beach Blvd, Jacksonville Florida has over a dozen or more thrift stores. My friend Birdie and I hit about six of them on February 20. Here's the highlight reel:
Nice expression, and the tail is a little damn disturbing.
Lovely colored glassware giving off a rainbow shine in the sun.
This almost went home with me, but at $8.00 the inside was way too oxidized for me to make this useful. I love the graphic design, though!
This is the back! Imagine how bad the inside looks!
I've wanted to stop at this little shop for a while and finally got the chance this Saturday. They had a nice record collection, too many for me to browse thoroughly.
A very interesting painting that I resisted in the Salvation Army on Beach Blvd.
An inviting space to sit and read. I wasted a good 15 minutes in one of these chairs reading different books.
I ended up with Some Elf Quest graphic novels, various books, one video game, a couple of cups, and a couple of movies. All for around $17.00 total. It was fun to thrift until we were spent and then get beer and sandwiches. More Thrift Adventures are needed in the future!
