here we go again...

there's just so much i want to say! 
anyway, i wanna throw out the idea that i want a thrift store pen-pal. 
here's what i'm thinking:
i buy something cool at the thrift and send it to someone whose blog i admire whom i think would enjoy it and they send me something back - we can keep doing this forever.....
OR 
if enough folks get into it, we can make it a chain-letter type of thing and i send something to someone and then they send something to someone, and so on and so forth until the circle completes itself and i get something back from someone i may not even know of! 
brilliant! it combines the joy of getting mail with the joy of thrifting!
and if someone somewhere along the way drops the ball then you may be out like $5 at the most but you'll know you tried and that you probably made someone's day! 
WHO'S IN?!
