Thrift Find: Old-School Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Mug: Family Thrift ($0.40)
I had little luck at the thrifts this past Saturday. I planned to just hit up Goodwill Outlet and go home, but after coming up empty-handed I decided to go to a couple more stores. In what may be a personal thrifting record, I only spent forty cents all day.

Luckily, it was money well spent, because I really love this Harry Potter-bedecked find! From the year 2000, this mug is practically vintage! Or at least from back before the movies, which seems like a lifetime ago to someone who graduated middle school that year.

I can't wait to enjoy my nighttime tea in this neat mug! Although I'd prefer butterbeer.


PS: Who wants to take me to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando? 'Cause I really want to go!


  1. Hello Amanda,
    Our youngest daughter Destiny loves Harry Potter, she has read all of the books. We are planning a trip to the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” in Orlando within the next couple of months. Love your new mug, oh yes perfect for ButterBeer.
    Smiles, Paula
