I was headed out to the mall today to do some holiday returns when I passed a kind of down and out thrift shop that I seldom frequent. I've stopped there a few times in the past, but they never really have anything that I am interested in as they seem to cater more towards clothing as opposed to housewares (which are my thrift store item of choice). Well, today I felt the urge to stop and it must have been fate calling. After walking in and grabbing five pyrex bowls, four holiday mugs, four holiday plates, and a few other little doo-dads, I was heading back to my car with my bundles. Everything is in really great shape and I am almost ashamed to tell you the total price... ok, I'll tell... $10.25!!!
