They had a half price sale at our local Goodwill today.   As it was the 2nd day things were pretty picked over, but did manage to pick up a few goodies.

– 2 bunny mugs @ 75 cents

–   3 VHS tapes at 50 cents each.

  • “Johnny Mnemonic” starring Keanu Reeves and Dolph Lundgren.   (1995)  Futuristic internet driven world (made a few years before “The Matrix”) .
  • “Electric Dreams” (1984) a now 30 year old “modern day” movie where the guys computer falls for the same girl as the lead and sabotages him.   Just by the cover it is odd to see the “modern day” mammoth of a computer compared to today’s technology.    I have only seen the last 20 minutes of this movie when it was a rerun on TV so don’t know if it is any good or not.
  • “Screwed” (2000)  A comedy starring Norm McDonald, Dave Chappelle and Danny DeVito.  I have never seen this movie…something about a chauffeur getting the idea to dog nap his rich clients dog for ransom that goes awry.

–   Digital Photography Accessory Kit – $2

  • Everything was still new in the package for $2, including a tripod, MMC carrying case, photo magnet, cleaning cloth, screen protector and a 60 day trial photo software (which works on my computer because it is Windows XP).

Thrift store shopping can be fun if you look at it as more of an adventure of what new-to-you treasures you might find and keeping an open mind, but can be frustrating and disappointing if you are looking for something specific.
