On a scale completely different to the UK, Thrift stores in America-well Bellingham anyway, are huge! Warehouses rather than cosy little high street shops. For a hardened and regular charity shopper such as myself it was quite incredible. I visit my local shops very regularly as you never know what you will find. To do that with shops this size is a considerably longer affair. Charity fun! Weirdly I probably found about the same number of things to take home as I would here, or maybe I was being good as I had to carry them on a plane.
The furniture is very cheap and some of it quite good.
Andy took this and the first photo. Not sure if this sign was outside a thrift store but it fits!
Right hand girl has not got her book. Perhaps left hand girl will read to her.
As it was I couldn't do that, so contented myself with a weird assortment of finds. The suitcase I packed them all in came from Goodwill too, and attracted the attention of Homeland Security, hence this polite notice with my broken lock taped to it with special security tape!
