#talesfromthethrift What I Didn't Buy



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.
#thrifting
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.
#thrifting
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!

My thrift store sells the knockoff purses for a mint! It's insane!! Granted, a couple might be real, but most are fake...I'm not forking over $90 for a knockoff!! lol

There have been some horrible fakes I've seen at thrift shops for insane prices - I always laugh at 'em! How are your antique malls? I have seen some vintage real Gucci and LV for damn good prices!

I have not been to any antique malls here... none close by. I find all my goodies at the thrift stores. And I can by a brand new knockoff in China Town for about $40! I need to ask someone at the thrift store why the purses are so high, they probably don't even know.

I'm a sucker for old books and if anything will make me splurge it would be a great first edition to add to my collection.

I passed up a great jean jacket that I've totally regretted for the past week. I'm not even sure why I didn't snag it. It wad only $1.99! Yeah...I'm regretting that one.
