Thrifty Finds

Thrift stores can be so darn fun sometimes. You never know what you're going to find. The kids and I went to Goodwill the other day in search of some ugly ties to send my brother for his birthday, while he's on his mission. We came home with these beauties.

I actually like the pinkish one, and almost decided to keep it for some unknown reason, even to myself, and Tyson was particularly drawn to the brown paisley one. So I guess maybe they aren't so ugly, especially considering there's an old Jerry Garcia thrown in there, well except for the brown clip on, that one is really and truly ugly. So at least Will will get one ugly tie.
But these aren't the treasure of the day.
These are!

Now don't roll your eyes, I've always wanted to learn how to Rollerblade, but never wanted or could spend the $70 it would take to buy even the lowest end model, especially since I'm not even sure I'll take to it. But Tyson has a pair and as been wanting me to get a pair for a couple years now so at a sweet $9 I couldn't resist. I'm sure they'll be many misadventures while these are on my feet.
