So when I don't spend time getting smarter I shop.

I don't often shop, but when I do I go to the old folks thrift store. It's run by the elderly and the money is well spent.

I was in desperate need of a new computer table, the old one crashed (in a graceful manner thankfully since it carried all my hardware including our 42" secondary monitor). We found not only a nice sturdy table perfect for the space and my computer needs but also 4 fancy metal coasters. chuckle.gif

For all this including home delivery I paid €45. beercheer.gif

Sure as hell was. cheers.gif Not only is the money well spent, but those old folks (75+) in there are just the funniest most adorable charming bastards you'll find running any store lmao.gif Not to mention how it keeps them sharp in the brains and keepin them muscles working. It's a win/win/win situation chuckle.gif

They probably made way more off of the stuff I donated to them than I ever spent there altogether but if someone has a use for my old junk and the old folks make a buck I'm all for it. beercheer.gif

It's just that shiny! Can't say I've ever see wood finished like that. There's an extra top extension piece that screams "I need to be made into a guitar body" chuckle.gif
