This week was Courtney's birthday so we went to Orlando for the weekend. A charity event for the survivors of Pulse nightclub featured cast members from The Walking Dead and Arrow. We love both shows and it was supporting a very good cause. Here is Arrow speaking at the panel we were fortunate enough to attend:
After the charity event, we went to pay tribute to the victims of Pulse and visited the club. I knew it would be emotional; yet I didn't know it would be THAT emotional. It took every ounce of my being to not break down crying. We saw a Muslim family mourning the victims, a Hispanic soldier and all different races, genders, religions and people of different sexual orientations paying tribute to the victims. With all the anger, fear and hatred in the world; it was overwhelming to see all the love.
I've never visited Ground Zero in NYC, Columbine or Sandy Hook; but I'm sure visiting Pulse had a similar feeling. I could literally feel my heart breaking. Honestly, I don't know what they should do to permanently honor the victims. If the city could build a memorial for the victims and re-open the club, so hatred doesn't stop the LGBT community's pulse; it would be amazing.

We look a mess in these pictures, but we were an emotional wreck. I still can't believe 49 people were killed at Pulse. It's devastating.
eBay sales really are insignificant compared to visiting Pulse. Since this is a blog about flipping finds on eBay, I'll share my weekly update with you. I sold 27 items last week and 54 for the month. September is shaping up to be a pretty good month. I only have 3 items left to list from all my thrift trips. I'll need to go on another trip soon. Here are some of my sales from the last week:

I'm a T-Shirt addict. Literally, T-Shirts and candy are my two weaknesses in life. So, I love finding older shirts like this Flinstones shirt. Any T-shirt with great subject matter from before 2000 is generally a quality buy.
