Thrifty Thursday – Board Games


One of my biggest weaknesses at the thrift shops is board games. I don’t feel very badly about this one though, because we play the games! We play board games probably 2-3 times a week.




A few of our favorite thrifted games are by the company Ravensburger. We got this one game Midnight Party around Halloween for $2, and it was quite fun….more recently we found a copy of Labyrinth (which I thought might be boring) but we loved it! It’s one we play all the time, and it turns out they still make it too. (You can find Midnight Party – A Game by Wolfgang Kramer online too, but it goes for so much)

Of course some of the board games are much cuter to look at then they are to play….but how can I resist those? Do you have a favorite board game I should keep an eye out for at the thrift shops?

Thrifty Thursday – Finds


My sister Heather and I like to go out thrift shopping once a week or so. It’s so much fun to get together with her, we usually have a little lunch date, complain about high prices (Goodwill I am looking at you), and find cheap goodies that make us very happy indeed.

There are many many times when I come away from a thrift shopping trip with just a book, or maybe a mug, but there are some days when the thrift gods are smiling down on me!

The first photo up there was actually from a yard-sale shopping trip (with Heather of course).


This stash of vintage cameras was one of those lucky days! I have been on the look out for an 8MM video camera, and this box had not 1..but 2! One takes batteries and the other is wind up.

I have a thing for vintage dishes. I cannot leave a good mug behind, or plate….or cup….hmmmm

And don’t worry about Heather, she finds good stuff too…just look at this super cute cat she found! I love it!


What about you? What is your thrift weakness? I have so many….vintage dishes, old board games, cute knick-knacks, old toys…..oh and kid’s books…it just goes on and on!
