The details … I took my husband thrift shopping

The details … I took my husband thrift shopping

That title is more than enough description for what you are about to read!    After filming a thrift shopping segment, this week with ShopJensCloset and Mirror/Mirror, my husband was curious about going to a thrift store with me.   I was secretly hoping that today wasn’t one of those “Amazing” thrift days where you find more than you could possibly purchase, I can’t buy that much in front of him .. ha ha

We walked in right when the store opened, I grabbed a cart and headed over to the dresses.   After 2 minutes of watching me go through every single hanger and only moving about 4 feet, he told me he was going to go “explore”.    Expecting him to return after 30 minutes I decided to go find him …. oh yes, you KNOW where he was … all comfortable on a couch that was old and yellowed (don’t want to know why).   I knew I had reached the amount of time I could spend in the store and informed him that I had to go to the dressing room so he had to protect the cart.   He GROANS …. I explained “honey, we will find a chair and move it over there for you”.   He did an awesome job defending my merchandise from women wanting to shop out of my cart!

As we were checking out he saw a man with a power drill … “where were those?”.   So I walked him back to the tool section, which was 2 shelves about 4 feet long … “that’s it, there are 20 rows of womens clothes and only this little section for tools????”

It was sweet of him to join me and be interested in what I’m doing but I can’t imagine him joining me again anytime soon.

Here are some of the things I found ….    (I only purchased 4 items!)

  1. Great finds Pippa! I spotted the Friends game at a thrift store a few years back. I give it a pass, and actually kind of regret not buying it. I’m such a Friends dork.

    My hubby thrifts with me sometimes. He likes checking out the records {LPs}, books, and what nots. He also collects Hawaiian shirts, so he will sometimes do a walk through the clothing. I’ve found him some great clothing, but when he looks, I think he gets overwhelmed and thinks everything is too used, or too old, or too ugly etc.

  2. AMAZING deal on that j. crew dress!

  3. Great finds! My husband always find the chair/couch too and the used books : > Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  4. Those are some awesome finds! My husband refuses to go thrift store shopping with me altogether! He doesn’t like used ANYTHING…I’m slowly bringing him around to the thrift way of thinking but it’s hard. He will seriously spend $40 on ONE SHIRT, it makes me want to scream! To be fair he is 6’7″ tall so he has a harder time finding clothes that fit at thrift. Still!

  5. I am loving those boots! Your trip with the hubby sounds about right, mine has gone once, that’s it! He’s perfectly happy with me picking things up for him and bringing them home.

  6. Great finds and hubby was nice for tagging along.

  7. My husband loves Goodwill and a great bargain! He checks out the books to read as well as the home and furniture sections to find things to put in his rental homes. He just gets tired of waiting on me to try things on and says that I don’t need anymore clothes. 🙂 He also can’t drive by a Habitat for Humanity reStore without stopping.
