So many reasons it's been a long time since we took the boys out thrift store shopping. Yesterday, Tuesday, both of us had a full day off to spend as we pleased.
First we ate at Chaffin's Diner. They seated us in the less-dinery back room, which ended up being a good thing because we sat directly beneath a fan and didn't notice so much the heat. E drank decaff coffee with cream. I didn't notice sugar. Decaff, like his Uncle D. Coffee, like his Mimi.
We hit Shop for a Cause first, where the boys found nothing and subsequently sulked.
Next we pulled into the Humane Society Thrift Store, which I haven't visited in a long time. Historically I haven't found anything there.
Today we hit the treasure jackpot.
A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.
Of course E had them ordered in a matter of moments.
Finally we escaped the store with a trove of treasures (more than I've found in one place in a while!) after shopping longer than intended because of a torrential rain. Afterwards we celebrated with cold beverages from Coffee Times.
It's different, but it's back to normal.
