thrifting fun

While I was at my parents’ house this week, I had time to do a little thrifting at a new Goodwill shop. I loooove thrift shops. In high school, college, and the first year out of college I’d say 80% of my wardrobe was thrifted and I had some great clothes. With the kids, it’s a lot more challenging to head out for an entire morning of second-hand fun. And the Goodwill nearby isn’t the greatest. The one in Palmer was great, though. Most of the clothes were really nice. You can tell some people don’t take the greatest care of their stuff, though, because some of the mediums were more like x-x-small! They were totally shrunken and if I ever wanted to fit in them I’d have to investigate quick weight loss diets. I had a couple great finds though (that fit perfectly!). First was a very cute floral and lace cotton tank. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while, and for $3, the price was right. I scored another $3 win when I found a plum-colored Eddie Bauer silk and linen cardigan. It’s light and lacy and I will wear it a lot. But best of all were the jeans! For $6 I got a pair of perfectly fitting, barely-worn jeans from White House Black Market. I love the clothes in that store, but it’s a little too pricey for me, so this was a score! It’s always such a thrill to find great stuff 🙂
