My husband's work schedule has been crazy lately and he's back in school for Spring semester so we haven't been thrifting as much as I'd like. He had the day off and we decided to take a peek. These are all the things I didn't buy but caught my attention!
Yes that is a bottle of Dep hair gel from the 90s. The gel turned brown and was quite disgusting if you ask me. It was packaged with body pouf and some other bathroom products. Ew. Do you remember cassette tapes? I loved 'em --- waiting for hours for a radio station to play a song you wanted to record, those were the days! Another treasure from the 90s!
A really good Gucci knock-off. It was $7. Had it been $3, it might have come home with me.
These looked like paintings to me but my Fine Arts major husband (totally sassing him there) Chris says they are prints. I love everything about them except the price. $7 each is out of my price range.
These Bandai Gundam figures were assembled but the boxes were in great condition with instructions and all parts intact. Was a steal for $3 and I've been getting so much inquiries about 'em.
I love books! Call me an advocate for print! I really wanted these but wayyy out of my thrift shopping budget. I am tempted to go back and get them though. Dying to smell and flip through the pages!
