Found a great deal on towels :D
« on: July 09, 2010, 05:04:22 PM »
So.. I've been wanting to get some towels for the bottom of my martins. I decided not to buy brand new ones and try my luck at a secondhand store.

Well, it just so happens they were selling a whole bag of towels for only $4.99! Look as good as new..There are at least 8 large towels, and
a few smaller ones that would work great under the fleece on the shelves. All sorts of colors too. :hyper:

While I was there, I also found this rainbow no-sew liner type thing.
Well, it looked the perfect size for the bottom, and I couldn't pass it up for $2.99.



Just wanted to share :thumbsup2:

Great find, I swear thrift stores are made with rats in mind. My Sal.Army has large packs with bath towels and small, like washcloths. They also have rag collections. Great for cleaning or budget hammies ;) Gotta love thrift!

:(  Whats wrong with my salvation army and goodwills?!  I looked, no fleece blankies.  Towels, used, are 3-4 bucks a piece..its like uugh I mine as well buy new at those prices!!  I'm so jealous hearing about everyone else's cheap thrift stores.  Maybe its because I live in a "rich" state?

Anyway, congrats on the great deal  :thumbsup2:

Thanks! I'm not sure if that has something to do with it or not - I live in PA though.

I actually have never seen anything like this before but, I don't go that often. Glad I did lol.

Probably just depends on your area and what is donated. All luck I guess. :P

It is very hit-n-miss. When I go into the "richer" areas their prices are higher but they have better stuff. The poorer areas have great prices but have really been picked through. Check your phone book, sometimes the smaller local ones are better than the big-name Sal Army or Goodwill because they don't get picked clean by the larger customer base.
