No Thrifting This Week: Sorry!

Sorry, Waddingtons, Thos Holdsworth & Sons Ltd, Holdson 1963

From the Free Bin of Stourbridge St Boys & Girls Club Op Shop

Does picking through the Free Bin at an Op Shop count as thrifting?  Sorry was one of my favorite childhood games, but I don’t remember it having cards, just dice.   This game is missing the cards (probably how it wound up in the free bin), but i reckon it will still do the trick when teaching a little one to play games.

I always wanted to be either the red or the yellow.

Anyways, just a short post this week.  Got other things going on.   Big day actually: after 14 years the Canadian becomes a Kiwi.  It’s my citizenship ceremony and I’ve flown up to Wellington to have it amongst friends & family in Featherston’s Kiwi Hall.

I’d love you to share your thrifting strategy or your own op shopping experiences in the comments below.  I’m all about sharing the knowledge, but if you’re an Op Shopping Ninja who thrives on a stealth mission, I get and respect that too!

Do you thrift board games?  Any particular faves?  Scrabble seems to be a  very popular thrifted game round here.  Like maps, I think most get cannibalised for craft/art projects.
