Thrift Store Treasures #3

Thrift Store Finds --October 2014Had some good luck at thrift stores the first two weekends of October! It’s nice to pick up a few fall things before going up to the attic and dragging out all my winter clothes. The items I was found were:

  • A pair of forest green Gloria Vanderbilt jeans – $3.99
  • A long-sleeved Talbot shirt $3.99
  • A black lycra/cotton 3/4 sleeve dress with a glitzy Christmas design on the front (perfect to wear on my upcoming December cruise for “formal night”) – $2.99
  • A large, zip tote bag – $1.50
  • A 12 x 12 faux leather photo album with photo pages – $1.79
  • A short-sleeved paisley-like tee shirt – $3.99

For a grand total of $16.79, I got items that I estimate would (conservatively) cost at least $135 at retail price:

  • $30 for the jeans
  • $30 for the long-sleeved shirt
  • $20 for the tee shirt
  • $30 for the dress
  • $12 for the tote
  • $13 for the photo album

Pretty good savings! If you wear thrift store treasures once and they’re not what you thought they’d be, just donate them to your favorite store and the good karma will come back to you another time.
