As I've gleefully blogged in the past, my girlfriend Michelle and I share a passion for thrifting. So we were giddy about having the opportunity this weekend to venture out to one of our favorite destinations -- the thrift store at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, located in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida. And what treasures we discovered!
There's never a bad time for a new bag and I was delighted to have scored this awesome addition for my collection. (A guy's gotta carry his stuff somehow.) And although the design is rather basic, the color is, in a word, FABULOUS!
This oddity, I'm told, is called a video cassette tape. And like DVDs, it has the capability to transmit visual images onto your TV screen. Although a machine known as a VCR is required in order to use it, I had to make the purchase as this program features two episodes of Saturday Night Live from 1978 -- back when it used to be a comedy show. Plus, it only cost $1. Hopefully I can locate one of those VCR devices on eBay.
I'm not a terribly big fan of this band, but the shirt looked so flippin' fun that I couldn't refuse. Besides, they were only asking about thirty-eight cents for it. What would you have done?
We hope to get an earlier start next weekend and visit several more of our fave local spots. And of course I'll be sure to file a detailed report!
