Thriftin' on a Thursday: A Treasure From The Past!

This Bing Crosby album made me squeal, and it was open, but still in its cellophane wrap!

FIFTY CENTS. A half dollar is all that I gave for this sweet treasure in a little thrift store called "The Strawberry Patch" a couple of weeks ago when I was visiting my sister. It'll be such a nice album to listen to as we trim the tree (on this record player that my daughter bought her dad one Christmas not long ago)!

I was so pleased, and even though my sister doesn't have a record player she got a very nice-looking jazz album with a cover (a black and white beauty) that is frame- able as art.

I think the thrill of thrifting, garage-saling, and antiquing is that you never know what is hidden inside even the most dreary little places. You can leave with a treasure that may be only fifty cents but it will make you smile for years to come!

THAT happens to be one of my all time favorites! I also have a record player, but my collection is still rather small. Love the tag sales tho!

Eeee! That makes me squeal too! One of my all time favs. I got it on cd a couple years ago, but the album, still in the wrap, that is FANTASTIC!

Flea Markets & Garage Sales are my haven for that exact reason...I love a good find- at a great price!

I love thrift store finds. I especially love to find a stack of old cookbooks!

Sorry I've been away - and I am such a loser about mailing stuff - I will try to get your prize out this evening. I have this CD - I love it. I love the Hawaiian song.

Great find! I just have such trouble finding time to shop. There should be online what not shoppes.

I love that record! We used to listen to it while decorating the tree!

I agree about yardsaling. I found a great dresser (and mirror!) for $30 at a flea market that I'm going to refinish. A new one would've been a couple hundred dollars!!
