The $3 I spent went to the charities running the stores, and I get to see things I wouldn't otherwise.
A #thriftstore #painting cost her $4. It could sell for up to $250,000.
#archiveorg is the virtual equivalent of digging through boxes of records to find a mildly interesting album with atrocious sound quality.
The archivist of this stash transferred the records with an electric hum from the playback device and removed too much crackling and noise, so the record sounds souless and dead. The cover artwork is a blurry, poorly cropped jpg. Available through a wonderful but awfully slow online service - https://archive.org, the #thriftstore #spotify
Today's #CharityShop buys. I'm no photographer, so apologies!
* A grey shirt with a blue bird and leaf print. It's longer at the back which I love! €5
* A green stretchy blazer, very comfortable for work and for driving! €6
Hit up two #garagesales and one #thriftstore today. Garage sales are mostly hit or miss here, but we did alright this time (the prices didn't make us balk at least lmao). Found Tupperware and an iron I'm hoping to replace my teeny plastic traveling one.
The #thrift store prices were more on the "boutique" side, but not horrible; they at least had some better quality items that made sense for the prices. I did score an awesome vintage sweater for $2 because it had a couple of moth holes, which I will embroider over (later, after it's been in the freezer for a bit and washed).
Friend and I had a conversation earlier about thrift/2nd hand stores and how ridiculous the pricing is in Finland and Sweden.
Most of the better quality clothes cost almost the same as new same one.
I would really want to buy my clothes in 2nd hand more often but there is no point for me to pay near full price on item I can get as new :/
How are thrift/2nd hand stores in your country?
I don't really care much about #CountryMusic in general, but these Kris Kristofferson #CDs really stood out to me at the #ThriftStore today, so I coughed up the buck apiece and brought them home to listen and research. Turns out each of these albums only ever got the one #CD pressing on this One Way imprint (most editions were #LP or #cassette) so they're each worth $15-$25 to the right person.
Not goddamn bad listening either tbh. They'll probably stay in the collection for now !
one year ago, I found a treasure trove of #space posters at the thrift store. some teacher or engineer or someone collected a bunch of promotional and educational posters from #NASA and several of its adjacent subcontractors, and they ended up at the thrift, where I found them for pocket change. they immediately went up on the blank wall in my living room. #astronomy #spaceflight #thrifted #thriftstore #hubble #ISS #spaceshuttle #Astrodon

Going to add it to my Wednesday Night UFO Watch arsenal for @wufo! Results to come!
I have fiddled with a small #restauration project the last couple of days.
I bought this wonderful Rolce Royce of a tape dispenser in a #ThriftStore a couple of years ago, for the humble sum of 37dkk (~5$/€).
I love it ♥️ it has chrome and fine details, and it reminds me of a classic car … but it needed to TLC.
I took it all apart, cleaned it up and sanded of the rust, repainted in cream and pastel avocado green, buffed up the chrome.
Isn’t it delightfully too much, just for tape?
My #introduction Hi all! New to the platform/instance and coming back after a long social media blackout. I’m a rare book dealer and lifetime horror fan. I’ll likely post about bookish nonsense and movie reviews. Please lmk if I’m doing this wrong. Looking forward to chatting. #horror #thrifting #thriftstore #classicfilm #bookstodon #Vhs #sciencefiction #punkrock #vinyl #8tracktapes #comics #bookstore #gaming #retrogaming #vintageaudio #literature #antiques #Brooklyn #AlamoDrafthouse
