Right place, right time

So I did another drop at our thrift shop on post again. I found that I didn't really have much toys to give away, since we already went through them before the packers even made it to the house. Then I got to my cook books and got rid of a couple of those. Most of them looked brand new which just proofs, that I didn't use them much, if at all, so it didn't hurt to give them up.

Just then I found this:

Somebody must have just dropped them off, because they weren't even marked for sale yet. The one lady wanted to just give them for me, since I just dropped things off, but the other one said they couldn't do that. Bummer, but guess how much I end up paying for all three sets? Anybody? Can you say 50 cents? Yup, what a steal. The Brittany alone are originally priced 6.50, the Bernat with 1.75 and I know those rosewood needles aren't cheap either. And best of it all is, I didn't have those sizes in DPNs and I was just thinking this morning, that I'm tired of knitting the little lace scarf with those long cables. I guess the knitting goddess heard my cry for help?

Great find! You can never have enough needles!

Wow, that's a great find. Guess the knitting goddess wanted to make up for misplacing your needles for awhile there.

Great score. I got the big fisher price kitchen with all the accessories for $5 a few years back... all becasue the thrift store didn't have room for it and just wanted it gone! I love thrift stores
