Goodwill Shopping for this week
This week at Goodwill I hit the jackpot. I love old editions of Ideals Magazines and there on the shelf of the store was a huge stack of them from 1960 and 1961, .50 cents each. I bought all 14 issues. I just love the poems and the pictures. Good home grown sort of stuff in them. Poems that relate to the simple way of living. In the past I have purchased some off of e-bay but had to pay lots more than 50 cents, especially with shipping charges.
Then there was this tea pot, I know, I know, I don't NEED another tea pot, well actually I am a bit low on the blue and white color scheme so...anyway it was only $4. Needed more baskets for a couple things around the house and they were very cheep, under $1.
I am ever so grateful for a wonderful thrift store close by. I do tell myself on the drive there, "remember, want and NEED are not the same things ". Sometimes this little lecture helps and sometimes it doesn't. Reading material is almost always a NEED ! Oh yes, almost forgot, found a neat little book from the early 1960's Kitchen Window, its great little Christian stories about life in a much simplier time that might have been shared around the kitchen table.
