When Plan A for going to Hockeyfest failed, my other brother backed me up and was able to take me to the Tent Sale today to see what great stuff the team had on sale. They must've had some of the stuff for years because there were a few items that were ridiculously low for prices that they must have just wanted to get rid of for good. They had used players' skates for only twenty bucks! Old televisions (which you need antennas for) for only twenty to twenty-five bucks! I felt like I was at a flea market that was all hockey related, and I loved it.
I have photos of the great things I got my hands on at the sale.
This is everything I got all together. I didn't even spend that much really, so I was pretty happy.
The programs from the two past season were ten of them for a dollar, so I bought ten. I also bought the 2005-06 Yearbook and last year's Yearbook. I unfortunately found out that Thomas Vanek's favorite music is indeed Country. *cringes* He says he's fun to be around though. I won't deny that. Oh, and if he wasn't a hockey player now, he would still be in college.
I also grabbed a 2007-08 Vancouver Canucks Media Guide and then bought Sabres playing cards just in case I ever want to play Solitaire.
I bought a Sabres' reusable bag for two bucks, a Thomas Vanek photo (I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH!), a keyring, and a license plate for my sister since she needs one in Maine.
My brother shoved this into my hands when I was looking at programs. I love the picture, and it's nice to see one of the team's around here get a championship. Go Bandits!
Last but not least, the shirt I've been wanting ever since the Sabresstyle came out. 'The City of Hockey' t-shirt. It was fifteen bucks, and after being twenty-eight? Yeah, I wasn't going to miss out on buying it. This will be worn a lot.
