We have a shiny-new Goodwill store here in Williamsburg, Virginia; I have only been in it once before. Today I decided to run in and give everything a quick once-over, and look what I found--a big bag of zippers!
The price tag says $10.25, which seemed a little steep to me, but the zippers all look to be in perfect condition (old, but perfect!) and I guessed there were about 40 in the bag, bringing the price per zipper to... (...umm...where's my calculator?) about 25 cents each. That's a bargain! I use a lot of zippers in small pouches and bags, and I can use lots of different sizes, so I decided to go for it.
At the counter, the cashier told me "It's half off today"! What?? SCORE!! With tax they were only $5.39! And now that I have the package open, I can see that they are all good zippers, lots of colors and sizes, and best of all, there are 64 of them. Cost per zipper: 8 1/2 cents!
Have you ever found something really great at a thrift store? Tell me, please!
