Amvets Thrift Store in Massapequa, New York

I had heard some good things about this store and had spotted it often times from Sunrise Highway, but I never had the chance to go until last night. I honestly felt a bit overwhelmed by the amount of stuff, something that doesn’t often happen to me. I figured conquering the dress section would be easier than going through tops and pants (a huge section!) and took four dresses into the dressing room but none fit my bust area as they should. At this point, I met up with a friend in the shoe section, who also felt overwhelmed, yet didn’t find any particularly nice piece of clothing.

We crossed the store, to several rows of shelves that housed home goods and other random things. I came home with a piece of luggage from Bath and Body Works ($1.98!) and a huge Aladdin Thermos (the brand, not the character). Both will fit nicely into the upcoming Pennsylvania mini-road trip.

Just to give you an idea of how large this luggage is, that candle in the background is a large jar candle. When empty, the bag collapses on itself but for photographing purposes, it has two plus-size winter coats and one pillow packed into it.

I have not been able to date it but yeah, washed and good as new!

It would fit as easily on a boating trip as it would on a camping trip. Yay, miniature anchors!
