Today I went there out of boredom and picked out a couple modern shirts. Before getting rung up I looked in the jewelry case and spotted something that you don't ever see at thrift stores: Bakelite!!
There it was, a yellow honeycomb Bakelite bangle, peaking out of a bag of mixed bracelets. I'll take it, please! Oh you'll give it me for half off?? What luck!!
I decided I should have a better look in that jewelry case before leaving the store. There was another bag of jewelry with a red bangle that I needed to see up close.
There was a hole in the bag so I slipped my hand in and felt it. Yup! Thats Bakelite!! I'll take this one as well. Half off? Sure, why not?!
Upon better inspection I was quite happy to discover a third Bakelite bangle in one of the bags, a brown one. All in all I paid $8 dollars for 3 carved Bakelite bangles.
This is by far the luckiest trip to the thrift store I have had since leaving Denver! What's your luckiest thrift store find???
