A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art
I yesterday went to a thrift store that I used to visit several years ago. The store was very busy with clients on a Sunday and I spent a long time looking thru lots of collectibles. The only things I found were a very clean used childrens' Musk Ox toy that had a baby Ox on top and a Yamaha Baroque Alto recorder. The Musk Ox was large and I asked the cashier to hold it for me. I later walked to the cashier and went to pay for both when I sadly found out that they'd sold my Musk Ox to another client. I was extremely upset to say the least but the recorder was 50% discounted so it cost my only about $2.50 instead of $5.00. I haven't yet found the same exact same Musk Ox toy that I'd almost purchased yesterday. Moral: don't leave anything with a cashier at a thrift store if you really want it and if you have to leave it with the cashier then pay for it and have them put it in a closed bag or take it to your car. Lesson learned.
