A Great Find

I was recently at a thrift store donating some things that my husband and I no longer needed.  Of course, after my donations I had to do a little shopping.  That's my motto:  Get rid of some junk wonderful items and replace them with more junk wonderful items.  

I really wasn't expecting to find anything amongst all of the 1970s avocado green crockpots and the eight-track tape decks.  

So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I came across this little baby:

I couldn't believe it.  Then I did a "double take" when I saw what was inside:

I've been needing a bowling ball all of these years, and now I had the chance to own one.  The best part:  Priced at $5.99 for both the bag and the ball, the store was having a 30% off sale.  So I bought it all for only $4.19.  Wowza!

After I sent Sis a photo of my extremely exciting purchase, she sent me a pic of this:  

Who knew that there's a cleaner made specifically for bowling bags and balls?  It just keeps getting better!


  1. Only you would be lucky enough to find a bowling bag that is plaid. What a great find! Have fun bowling. xo

  2. I saw one like this just recently in a magazine and loved it- what a wonderful find (and deal)!!

  3. Great find!..and it looks like it's in really good shape, too. How 'bout that "color coordinated" bowling ball? Now all you need is a pair of tartan bowling shoes and you're all set.

  4. Such a great tartan find!!!!
    Lucky girl!

  5. I think the cleaner was more expensive than the ball and bag.;-O
