Secondhand Store Score

Retail Value: $19.99

SSS Cost: $2.89

Quality: 8/10 Scuffed, but really nice overall

Uses: If you wanted to make this for the classroom, I’d suggest adding heavy card stock or cardboard dividers for sorting papers or books. I, however, made it into a jewelry box because I needed a better way to organize my selection of necklaces, and I already had the bamboo containers ($7.99 –eek!–at TJ Maxx) With the addition of a few corner brackets and some Command Strips, I have a beautiful new necklace holder.

Secondhand Store Score: Pogs!

Secondhand Store Score

20140524-162554.jpgRetail Value: Priceless. Just kidding. Back in the mid 90’s it was around $0.50 per pog and $3.00 for a slammer

SSS Cost: $3.99

Quality: 7/10 Some not as nice as others. For the most part, they are in good condition.

Uses: There once was a time this childhood gem could be found around any playground at recess, kids huddled up in circles, slamming pogs and running underground betting rings. I will teach the youth the pog lifestyle that is named after the delicious Hawaiian drink of the same name. 20140524-162607.jpg
