"Thrift" Stores

We had a good run, thrift stores, but it's time for me to move on.

Remember those $10 Taylor Smith Taylor place settings for 8, the $40 Brasilia bedroom sets, and the $3 Quartite table lamps?  Those were the days.

I'm not sure when I noticed that things had gone south.  Maybe it was the $2.00 per piece place settings, the $200 no-name laminate-topped writing desk with missing veneer and crayon scribbles, or the pieces with Goodwill price tags that were higher than the (still attached) retail stickers.

I told you about what happened with my ex, estate sales.  You knew how I felt about that breakup.  Now you've gone and broken my heart too.

I'd say it was me, not you, but your addiction to price increases has driven us apart.  Maybe, with time, we can find each other again, but I'm through putting in all of the work for nothing in return.

Would any fellow St. Louis MCM enthusiasts be interested in a spring/early summer BBQ get-together?  Mr. Mod and I were talking a couple days ago and thought that it might be a good idea.

Nothing fancy, just some burgers, brats, a couple sides, and maybe a few cold, frosty adult beverages in the back yard on a sunny saturday.

If you'd be interested, just let me know and we can hopefully make something happen.
