Viva la Thrift

I'm a huge fan of thrift store shopping. It's amazing what you can find with a little time to mill around the store, snooping through the racks of clothes and walls of bric-a-brac. I went on a shopping spree over the weekend and spent under $45 on 19 articles of clothing - that averages out to $2.37 per item, including tax.

Viva la Thrift

1 scarf
1 pair of jeans
1 cardigan thing
1 button-up shirt
2 pair of dress pants
2 t-shirts
5 sweaters
6 long-sleeve shirts

All pre-loved. All perfectly fine. More than half the stuff looks brand new and the other items look barely-worn. I can't say enough for Goodwill, The Salvation Army, Feed My People and the like.

I'm always on the look out for new thrit stores to visit. What shops do you frequent? And what are your favorite stuffs to thrift for?

  1. I <3 the thrift stores! About once a month or so I drop off stuff and get "new" clothes, lol.

  2. It was awesome to go on a shopping spree and spend less than $50. I still need pants, pants and more pants. And more sweaters. And some cool t-shirts. Might as well get more scarves. And dishes, lots of plates for breaking. And stuff to hang on my wall.

    WTF is wrong with me? I've turned into a monster.

  3. Maybe you've been watching too many episodes of Hoarders :)
