Best Thrift Store Find of the Year!

It's a new year, and time for me to hold back on my extravagant thrift store spending.
But when I find a bargain like this, I just cannot resist.
Nope. Cannot.
Broeder was really hoping for a new pirate ship for Christmas this year, as his current pirate ship used to belong to one of his uncles, and had received a lot of wear over the years.
So, I looked around a bit in stores (okay. only meijer!) and on line only to find ONE that I liked. It was a Jake and the Neverland Pirates, but it only came with a midsize ship and one figure, Captain Hook.  So that is what we ended up getting.

So, today I am wandering sloooowly around the thrift store, noticing all the new stuff they had out yet only finding a few things that interested me. One of those things was a very old Hall Stoneware Mug for 50 cents. But nothing else really caught my eye, at least that eye that could justify buying anything.
Now lately I have been avoiding the toy section. But they did have quite a bit more than when I was there on New Year's Eve, so I reluctantly looked anyway, knowing that I have no more space to put any more toys.
Then I saw it. A Jake and the Neverland Pirate ship! It DID come with a Captain Hook, but also TWO Jakes and a whole lot of other things too! And it all works!
So of course I brought it home. It will now belong to Broeder, who will be able to imagine all sorts of wonderful things to do with it!
And now I feel so much better about his Christmas gift!
(it is almost embarrassing how happy this makes me!)

Good for you (and Broeder).
And STOP IT already!
I don't need any encouragement in the area of thrift store shopping!
