What’s luck got to do with it?

I am often asked what time is best to thrift store shop. I tell people that there really isn’t a best time. In my experience frequency is the key, not luck. The more you go, the more you find, the “luckier” you are. And if you are there when they bring out new items – first dibs!
Also, spend some time. I usually get sucked in for an hour or so. If you take the time to look, there are treasures hidden on the shelves and on the racks.
Here are some items I have found “hiding”.
A brass cricket box.

Flamingo pink Pyrex dinnerware.

Zombie cookie cutters.

And, funny, snarky signs.

The one sad thing about the shop is that they usually only have one of an item.
Like one salt or pepper shaker.

Unless you want an Elefun game or woven plate holders. Then you are covered!
