Songs, Faces and Second Hand Clothes

I go to the thrift store at least once a week. Lately I've had difficulty finding anything of any worth to me, but I continue to go hoping to luck out and find something worthy of my thrift store collection. 
Saturday I made my weekly trip to DI in search of second hand treasures. I wasn't expecting to find anything of much worth, but that's what I do, I go and look anyway. I always start off looking through the clothes, then the shoes, then records. After records I go out and look in courtyard area for paintings, various sporting goods and lamps. After that I make my way back inside to look at the books, hats and sunglasses, oh! and mugs. I like mugs. 
Saturday was a special day. It was the best thrift-store day I've had in the past 6 months. I found all sorts of hidden gems. I found a really cool vintage polo and a navy blue cardigan in the clothing area, but the find of the day were all the records I discovered. It was truly an amazing day. I love DI. 

Here are the records I found
  1. Paula Abdul- Forever Your Girl
  2. Belinda Carlisle- Heaven on Earth
  3. Huey Lewis and the News- Selftitled
  4. Huey Lewis and the News- FORE!
  5. Bon  Jovi- Slippery When Wet
  6. The Police- Every Breath You Take
  7. Michael Jackson- Thriller
  8. Jefferson Starship- Nuclear Furniture
  9. Mr. Mister- Welcome to the Real World
  10. Carly Simon- Coming Around Again
  11. Peter Gabriel- So
  12. The Dirty Dancing sound track

Even a gangsta like me can appreciate a Paula Abdul record.

after 6 months of nothing you found "all sorts of hidden gems"- if that's not a lesson on enduring to the end, i don't know what is.

Dude, those are some legit records. And at thrift store prices, even better.
