Awesome thrift store finds yesterday!!
I am so excited!! I got some awesome stuff yesterday. A few things I have been looking for, and a few extras. Here is what I got:
Outward Hound dog life vest size Med like new! $3.00 (retails $20.99)
Outward Hound fanny pack with water bottles for myself and dog with foldable dog water bowl like new! $5.00 (retails $32.60)
Men's Inline skates (been looking for some and they fit!!) Ds can borrow them even though they are a little bit big on him until I can get him a pair. They look new! $9.99 (retails $109.99-$140)
Yaley Candle making kit. It has a few minor things missing, like a few wicks and some wax and minor things. It has one extra candle mould with it! $1.91 (retails $24.99)
Euro Pro toaster oven. Needs a good cleaning but works great and is not a tiny one. I have been looking for one. $8 (retails around $50)
Foodaver V2830 model in great shape, works!! Came with a roll of bags. I have a foodsaver but it isn't as nice and it has had trouble with not wanting to work in the past. I paid only $4.94!!!! I am serious, less than $5.00!!
At the same store, I got 2 bags of foodsaver accessories. They were marked as one lot in two bags. Here is what was in the two big bags: 2 rolls of bags, a package of the ready-made bags, instructions for the foodsaver V2830, 3 Large canisters, 3 medium canisters, 3 small canisters, 1 short canister, 1- 1 qt rectangular dish, 1- 1 1/2 qt rectangular dish, 3 microwavable rectangular dishes, 3 canning jar attachments (all the same size), 2 large universal vacutop lids, 1 small universal vacutop lid, 3 bottle stoppers, 4 hoses and all the hose accessories and instructions. I guess the same person donated the foodsaver as well as all the accessories. It would take me forever to figure out how much all the accessories origninally cost because I think they bought them in groups. How much did I pay for all of this? $8.98!!!
I also got a few books. Four of the books are about fish and fishing. I got them for my son and I will be putting them away for Easter! The others are just some small cookbooks for me.

I have pretty much all the FoodSaver stuff you listed and I can tell you I paid a LOT more than $9! What a steal! I just paid $10 for the three bottle stoppers alone (which work great, btw) recently.
Wow, you did great! Congrats on that haul. I can see why you're so excited about it all. I would be too!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
