The weather was gorgeous. A bit brisk, but sunny. We walked around a little to a few of the boutiques in the area. Christina knows EVERY ONE!!!
We ended up back at the cars at the McMennamin's Kennedy School (SO MUCH FUN!). She had "assigned" us each a seat with doll heads! (inside joke of Kathy not liking dolls - and Christina and I joking on Facebook, pre-trip, about finding and fighting over them! Parts is parts, right?)
Janice's mascot had red hair. Kathy's blonde. And mine brunette.
Christina introduced Kathy, Janice and I to the Goodwill Outlet Store "bins".
It's like an ever-replenishing yard sale in one location!
There apparently are THREE in the Portland area. We went to TWO of them...I don't think we could have fit a THIRD visit into Janice's "toaster"... her Scion.
blurry photo of the 3/4 back seat...Kathy was squeezed into the other 1/4 side behind Janice driving
The "bins" are sold by the pound. Can you imagine? We all went a little crazy for the fabric.
I found an awesome rag rug.
21 pounds @ .89/lb. Yeah, do the math!
It will be perfect in the studio.
It was SO big and heavy, but folded up nicely under my feet on the floorboard.
I can't stop thinking about the "bins"... I think it's a good idea they are 5 hours away!!!
I would be ADDICTED!!! So much so, I've made up a little ditty in their honor....
I'm a little goofy that way...guess you had to be there! lol
(to the tune of Robert Palmer's Addicted to Love)
You see the signs, and you re-read
It's by the pound, how can that be?
So many bins, you can't be saved
All those piles, of things you crave.
Now you're movin', at top speed
Get it quick, before it leaves.
Another pile, another heap.
There's no doubt, you're in deep.
Oh, there's a smell
But what the hell.
Your cart is full
You tip the scale.
Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's such an awful truth to say you can't get enough
You're gonna have to face it your addicted to BINS!
You might as well face it, your addicted to BINS!
