A girlfriend came to visit me last week and you know what that means…
First stop : the Savers located at 8530 W. Lake Mead Blvd. They were featuring 40% off activewear. That is pretty much what I have been living in since we moved here.
I found plenty of Danskin, Nike and UnderArmour for my girlfriend, but for myself I just picked up Target and JCP brands.
Left to Right : C9 skort…X Kersion hoodie…C9 white capris (with the $17.99 tag still on it)
Total Cost : $11.64
Even though I always manage to find something here, the store itself feels kind of neglected. Maybe it’s the fact that the store is located in a plaza that is in need of a facelift. Or maybe it’s the fact that there is always a bunch of donations piled up outside the store. The store itself is clean inside but it doesn’t FEEL clean, if that makes sense. The staff is just MEH. I can’t see myself spending hours in this store like I did in the one in New Mexico and I could never do a thriftover here.
Second stop : The Salvation Army located at 4196 S. Durango Dr.
I must admit, I never found anything good at The Salvation Army in New Mexico and didn’t have high expectations for the one here in Nevada.
Then I stepped foot inside the store.
First off, the store was super clean!
The clothing was organized and the staff was friendly and helpful!
I will definitely put this store in my thrifting rotation and so should you!
Here is what I found on this particular trip:
Left to Right: INC Maxi Skirt…Chico’s Zenergy Golf Shirt…NY Collection Leopard top
Total cost : $15.98
Third and final stop : Goodwill #71 located at 9385 W. Flamingo
The store is clean and organized and the staff is friendly and helpful BUT the space between the aisles is tight! There is no way two people, each with a shopping cart, could fit down those aisles. The store could do with a new space plan. Just sayin’.
As you know, Goodwill pulls their high end items and sells them at their deja blue boutique located on Charleston Blvd. so I wasn’t sure what I was going to find at their regular stores.
I was pleasantly surprised to find :
Total cost : $9.73
Check out the embroidery on the back of the jacket.
Goodwill runs specials Monday – Friday and this particular day happened to be 25% off if you have a casino players card. Um, hello…this is Vegas.
Goodwill is the top dog of thrift stores here in Southern Nevada and I look forward to checking out their other locations. In fact, they have a new one opening on Friday….
Anyone want to go thrifting?
THIS JUST IN!
My husband took me to Savers for the Columbus Day 50% off sale. He allotted me a whopping 15 minutes to shop. After wasting 10 minutes looking at the shirts, I headed to the skirt section and for a total of $6.46 I scored…
Left to Right : Lady Hagen golf skirt…New York Clothing Co. floral skirt
Not bad for five minutes, huh!
