Latest thrifty finds (I got a D&G purse for $5.99!)
Is it just me or is this time of year stinkin’ awesome for thrift store shopping? I suspect that the penchant for people to purge, de-clutter and clean in the spring may have something to do with why thrift store shelves are stocked with seriously good loot right now. I can’t be sure.
At any rate, I recently picked up what I consider to be some real treasures at my local Goodwill store.
I got this Express dress for $1.99 (it was “red-tagged,” which meant it was 50 percent off regular price that day). The Dolce & Gabbana purse is brand new with tags. I bought it for $5.99! It has to be a knockoff, right?
I picked up some other brand new stuff for the kids, too.
The cute summer dress was $1.99. One of the dolls was $5; the other was $1.50 (both were red-tagged). The wooden train set was $2.99.
I don’t thrift store shop as often as I’d like but I do have a great time when I go. During Haven last year, I had the privilege of sitting in on a seminar from Mr. Goodwill Hunting himself. During that event, he offered 10 tips for thrift store shopping. Check out my blog post on that here.
