Do you like going to thrift stores?
A couple of weekends ago, CountryBoy and I stopped at a couple of thrift stores so that I could find a few things to wear to an upcoming event. See, most of the clothes I have while traveling in the fifth wheel are casual clothes. You know, those clothes that are comfy and are 'staying at home' type of clothes. wink!
Granted, Mom and I rarely went but when we did I wanted to hide.
I love going to thrift and secondhand stores!
Why do I like it? I like the fact that I can buy perfectly good, often-times brand name clothing for a fraction of the price of the piece when it was new. I also like the challenge of 'the find'. Finding those pieces that fit and look decent on me.
Here's what I found that day...
White jeans & skirt, a blouse, a denim skirt and jacket from St. John's Bay, Dress Barn, and Coldwater Creek to name the more common brand names. Score!
We also found a few other items (another reason I love checking out thrift stores!) such as practically brand new pots,
a couple of storage baskets, a sushi mat and books!
Overall, I think it was a successful thrift store shopping trip!
We also went antiquing and thrift store shopping on our way home from Kentucky.
Here's what I found on that trip...
antique Ball blue jars (cuz one can never have too many of those!) and a Pyrex mixing bowl to add to my collection.
Won't they be perfect at our new farm?
I also picked up a bunch of lace and thread.
What deals have you found recently while shopping at thrift stores?
