Yes. Yes, we can.
On Monday, it was my last day of school for the year. We finished at 12:30, and decided to head down to the shopping centre for a few hours, and then go to dinner. Yes, it was good fun, but after being at the shops for hours, we were tired, and had already been around the place, a few times. But it was only 4, and we didn’t want to be ‘uncool’ and have dinner so early. So we decided to head into Savers, this massive second hand store.
And it was the best decision we made all day. I loved it in there. I think we spent half an hour in there, and the only section we really looked at was the books. It was amazing. They had rows, and rows of books, most of them in pretty mint condition for only a few dollars. My friends and I were in heaven. In total I bought 5 books, and it only cost me $16, (I had to save some money for dinner). In abook store these books could have cost me around $50.
The books I bought there were:
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone- it was $2 and in pretty good condition. Yes, I’m a big HP fan, but no, sadly I don’t own the books. I’ve read them all, and own all the movies, but I haven’t got around to owning them yet.
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- this was $4, hard cover, and very good condition. Yes, I know they’re out of order, but these were the only two HP books they had.
- To Kill a Mockingbird- this one was $3. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, especially with the whole HG mockingjay thing, and last week I received next year’s book list. And what was on the Year 10 English list? This book. So when I saw it for $3, I thought that I should buy it, save my mum a bit of money, ’cause I’m just the best daughter. Hehe.
- The Time Traveller’s Wife- this one was $3 also, and from the outside, it looks brand new. Inside it has a few rips, but I don’t care. There were two reasons I bought this book; one- it’s on my to-read-this-summer-list, and two- I have the movie on DVD and I love it!
- Night World Volume 2- about two years ago, I won this book package including NW volume 1, and even though it wasn’t my favourite in the pack, when I saw V2, I thought I should buy it. It was only $4, and looked like it was in perfect condition!So that was my adventures in thrift shopping. Yes, I admit, thrift shops kind of intimidate me, but I recommend visiting one, if you’re looking for a bargain!
