Thift Store Shopping Is FUN!

Creative:Zen Cozy - Day 16

I found this in a bin of iPod covers at my local Salvation Army yesterday. I wasn't sure if it was going to fit, since I have a Creative:Zen Vision and not an iPod, but it fits like a glove and looks awesome. And the best part? It was a mere FIFTY CENTS! Brand new and in the package and everything.

One great thing (among a million others) about living in Mpls is that the local thrift stores get a crapload of stuff that Target throws away. So there's a huge box of iPod accessories as well as a million new Mossimo shoes at my SA selling for $3/pair. I'm not a big brand person, but this Mossimo MP3 cover looks a little like a griffin, so that's why I got it.

Today I have to rest and get better. The Griffins are sick. We've both got a end-of-summer cold. It's bad timing since tonight is the QOTSA show at First Ave and tomorrow is the Fair. So we have to get

I love thrift shopping too! It is the best, the fun is the hunt. You never know what you will find.

Hope you feel better soon, summer colds are the worst.

I heart thrift shopping! That Salvation Army is very cool.... and it's still a well-kept secret, too. Have you been to the Unique Thrift Store in North East or the Valu Thrift in Saint Paul? They are pretty good, too.
