Hello, my name is Sherri and I am a thrift-aholic shopper. Now you know. Or maybe you have figured that out before my confession. There is more...are you sitting down? I haven't been to a retail mall in almost 2 years! My last purchase in a mall was Victoria's Secret. Because I do have certain standards. Which means ladies, that my under garments must be new.
I thought I would start sharing my thrift finds each week. This will allow me to keep up with my addiction and hopefully will hold me accountable to donate other items from my closet. Here is this week's thrift haul:
Black Land's End short sleeve top, Goodwill - $0.99 (color of the week, half off)
Fuschia short sleeve blouse, Goodwill - $1.99 (another color of the week)
Striped sleeveless top by Nine and Company, Goodwill - $3.99
Light blue Banana Republic blouse, consignment boutique - $5.59
Navy pleated skirt, Salvation Army - $0.99 (color of the week)
Beaded choker, Salvation Army - $0.99
Earrings, consignment boutique - $2.79
Lee Jeans for Bear, Salvation Army - $1.99
My total, minus Bear's jeans - $17.33
To give you insight into my addiction: I made two lunch hour runs, one day to Goodwill and the other to Salvation Army. Today, Bear and I visited with his Granny (my Mom) a her Beauty Shop, afterwards we dropped in two consignment shops. Then on our way home stopped in our local Goodwill and Salvation Army. This week is probably a record number of visits even for me! For the record, I did not find anything in one of the consignment stores, nor in my local Goodwill today. The first 3 tops were purchased earlier in the week at a lunchtime Goodwill drop in. The pleated skirt from the Salvation Army lunch visit. I did find the Banana Republic blouse and earrings today in the 2nd consignment boutique. Cutest secondhand store ever! The owner once worked for Abercrombie. It shows in her store and displays, hence the 'boutique' status. Today's Salvation Army find's were jeans for Bear and the adorable beaded choker for me.
