Vintage Fun at the Thrift Store

Things have been super busy at our house since school has started……….mostly for me!  Trying to get everyone where they need to be and getting everything done is always such a challenge.  A good one but a challenge never the less.  So Friday after dinner I decided to take a little break and hit up the two thrift stores in our town on my way to Wal-Mart for some necessities.
My first stop was to the Salvation Army.  I arrived 15 minutes before they closed.  Well I found some great stuff in less than 15 minutes!

It has such subtle detail and looks even better in person.

I also picked up this vintage  plaid coat.  It was also 1/2 price it was $3.00.  It is starting to get cooler here and I thought it would be just perfect for fall.  I already wore it on Saturday!
Then it was off to the Thrifty Shopper, I had an hour till closing here.
I got a few scarves to add to my collection.  They were $1.00 each.

When I am not wearing them around my neck or on my head I like to tie them to my purse.
I think I my need to find an additional drawer to store them in.  This is BEFORE I added my new ones!

These shoes aren’t vintage and at $5.00 were more than I like to pay, but they are oh so cute!

These necklaces were $1.99 each except for the silver one and one other but I am not sure which one.  Those were .99cents each.
The blue one is 5 feet long and the black one is made in Austria.

The silver one is actually a belt, but it is to small for me so now it is a necklace!

This is the only thing I picked up for the house.  At $1.99 I could not resist it!  What is not to love?  Red and white POLKA DOTS!
Well when I was checking out I found out they were having a sale the very next day for 40% off the entire store!
So the next day I headed over with Miss A.
She picked up 3 pairs of jeans for $4.19 each and a t-shit she loves.  It has Elmo on it and NYC.
I picked up this neat bracelet.

I am really loving plaid right now.  Over the summer I found this great vintage bag that I never blogged about.

Ralph Lauren tweed for $2.99.  It is apparently vintage from the 80’s.  I found a similar one on Etsy for $85.00!
Well how have you done this past weekend?  Are yard sales in your area starting to fade?

  2. Wow! I am impressed that you found so many things in the 15 minutes before closing at the first thrift. That's super shopping! And quadruple that shopping time and you got even more cool stuff. The plaid bracelet is so pretty and great buy on the Lauren bag!
