Like a blind dog in a meat market



I stopped into my favorite thrift today and an older customer standing next to me said "it's like a blind dog in a meat market". Basically what he meant was that all of us customers were just fumbling around, bumping into everything and smelling/touching everything. Yep, that's about right.

Here's what I bought for $2. A set of brand new melamine dishes by Thomas Paul. I thought they were too big to be dinner dishes but that's what they are. If you like them, you can buy your own set for only $40 on Amazon (I'm keeping mine.) $10 each for melamine plates?? Yikes!!!

Hi Peggy,

I love the blog... I think you'll like www.YardGopher.com

When people post yard sales, they will list descriptions of specific items for sale with images so it is easier to find goodies without driving all over town.
