this new category will guarantee more regular blog entries because i waste a lot of money on junk. today, i'll introduce you to the how and what of my thrift store finds.
i have a sedentary office job. if i didn't have to go to the bathroom, i could be sitting for four hours at a time. in order to make ourselves less like slugs and more like humans, my colleagues and i go for walks about once a day. we go twice on crappy days when we have to talk to architects.
my walking buddies are rk and am. all three of us walk mondays and tuesdays.
rk + am
wednesday through friday, it's just am and me and we almost always walk to the thrift store three blocks from our office.

it's a very well organized thrift shop. it's the only one i know that has a yarn and needles section. i love browsing through their bookshelves. i buy on average a book a week. so far this week, i got this one for $4:
duncan on picasso
last week, i got a book whose author i'm unfamiliar with. i bought it mostly for the weathered orange binding. that it's a collection of short stories is also good.
judge this book by its cover
if you own volume one and if it has a pretty cover, i'd try to buy it from you. also, last week, i bought two sets of cup and saucer. these are something i normally wouldn't buy. i'm not sure why they caught my eye. i really like that they couldn't be any simpler in design.
cup, no saucer
they're pure white, not cream as these images show. but this is why i bought them:
green bee logo
i'm giving one set to my old college roommate missy. i can't remember why but i seem to remember that she collects bee things. it has something to do with her middle name, dee. hm. makes no sense, does it? what does dee have to do with bee? gee.
am and i haven't made our pilgrimage today. are you wondering what i'll find? i know you are. well, stay tuned!
