I’m sure it comes as no surprise to all of you that I went thrifting over the Veteran’s Day holiday…BUT I then met up with my husband, who happens to be a disabled veteran, for his free meal at California Pizza Kitchen.
I started on Sunday with the 50% off Pre-Sale at Savers. My thrifting buddy Doris and I were there for around 5 hours… again! We both scored some pretty amazing stuff. I was on the hunt for tops that concealed my mid-section, ponchos/wraps, vests, anything plaid and/or animal print.
Here we go:
Left-Right: DeCoded top $3.00….Fenn Wright Manson 100% merino wool open front sweater $2.50. This is a high end brand from the UK…. Talbot’s red denim jacket $5.00. Doris found this one. It was too big for her…yay me! I love it!.
O..MG! I am in love with this vintage red coat with the plaid lining. I only paid $5.00 for it!! I really like this East 5th black ruana too $6.50. My husband hates it…like…a lot! :-(
I needed..okay, I WANTED a basic brown pencil skirt and this Sears brand skirt fit the bill $3.00. On the other hand, this black embroidered skirt is a Nordstrom brand (Persaman New York) and was only $1.50! Hmm, someone needs to learn their brands…
This is the first time I actually purchased something new from Savers. This infinity black scarf was not discounted $9.99. These Arthur Chiang shoes were $4.00.
On Veteran’s Day, Doris and I hit up Thrift Town for their 50% off all clothing sale. We were both somewhat disappointed at their lack of selection, but of course we both found something to buy. ;-)
Don’t you just LOVE this coat and jacket? My friend Doris actually chose this Worthington tan/brown coat for me during my thrifting birthday party. (More on that party on an upcoming post for Thrift Town.) I scored it for $20.00 which is pretty pricey but I really like it. The black leather jacket is Chico’s $10.00.
Remember I said I was looking for shirts to hide my mid-section?
L-R: Talbot’s top $5.00, (tag removed) snake print top $1.50, Jones New York black and purple paisley zip up blouse $5.00. Doris found this one too. It is new with tags. Foxcroft brown/white gingham zip up blouse $2.00, and a Liz Claiborne sweater $4.00.
My thrifting doesn’t end there…
On Wednesday I headed to The Family Thrift Center with my friend Lisa. You all remember that is Senior Day right? Three color tags were 50% off. Of course, only two of the five things I bought were 50% off. Oh well!
L-R: WHBM gold shrug $7.99…I LOVE this reversible suede vest $5.99. The cargo vest was on sale for $2.00.
The other side.
L-R: This Antonio Melani (Dillard’s) new with tags, jacket was TOTALLY worth the $14.99 I paid for it. The Jones New York top was on sale for $2.50.
Lisa and I stopped at two more thrift stores. We struck out at The Assistance League of Albuquerque but we both scored at Goodwill.
This Chico’s Synergy vest was only $3.19.
I ended up with 22 items for around $109.00..which equals out to around $4.95 per item.
So, my loyal readers…what items do you want to see me model first?
