I know just as well as anyone that thrifting is hit and miss. For me, a lot depends on the area where I live. There are some great thrift stores where I live now, but I’ve also lived in places where the thrifting was very sad. So, I’m thrilled that I can find things here!
This is the haul from a recent trip to the Goodwill.
I have been searching for a white button up for a while now, so when I saw this one, I grabbed it. There are some braided accents on the shoulders that I didn’t love, and the cheapskate in me wondered if it was worth the $6 to take it home and fix it. But in the end, the desire to end the search won out. I took the braid things off by using a seam ripper and sewed the seams back up with my sewing machine. And now I love it!
The maroon shirt (or whatever the trendy name for that color is now) was a no brainer, because #gocougs. Also, it was half off of $3.99, so even though I took it in about an inch on each side, it was totally worth for $2!
I’ve decided I need to pick up lanterns whenever I see them because I might be starting an obsession there, and the same goes for anything silver, thus the silver butter tray (although this one ended up being silver-plated).
The florally shirt is not me at all, but screamed my sister, so when she stops in next, I’ll see if she agrees with me.
The mask I thought would be a great alternative to my normal witch Halloween costume, and not pictured was a light saber that couldn’t be put down long enough to get in the photo.
Total spent: about $25. (I can’t find the receipt for the exact amount. Story of my life.)
Not too shabby, I think.
