The only thrift store near my house is a Goodwill and it has been really picked over lately. I haven't found a thing the last several times I've been there and I've been really discouraged. Marcia especially has been needing some clothes. She's outgrown little girl sizes and I am having to buy Junior sizes. She'll be taller than me before I know it. I'll the short (and dumpy) one in the house and I'm 5' 7"!
Monday, I went with my mom to our local Junior League's thrift shop and my faith in thrift stores has returned! :) This store normally has things priced higher than Goodwill, but the shop is clean and organized very well. It even smells nice! The day that I stopped in they just happened to be having a 50% off sale so everything was priced even better than Goodwill! I found several really nice things for the girls and me.
The picture is blurry, but maybe you can see what I bought. I bought an ankle length, dark denim skirt and a pair of Born shoes for myself. The shoes are really cute and will go with all sorts of outfits.
I bought Marcia a knee length denim skirt and two tops. Can't you just see that skirt with the sweater/shirt combo top and tights with her (fake) Uggs? She's wearing the red, long sleeved shirt today. It's from Old Navy.
Cindy got a darling striped sweater hoody (that she is wearing today) that is from Old Navy and a layered look pink long sleeved tee that says "Tiaras Make me Taller". :)
I paid $18 for all of it.
I'm going to try to find out how often they have those sales. I think it will be worth the drive to get such great bargains.
