Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Store Finds
I was looking online and saw that one of my favorite thrift stores was having a sale for .25 kid's clothing if it had a purple tag on it. One of the reasons I love this particular thrift store is when they have sales like this they always put the certain tag color on racks by themselves, so it makes perusing the offerings so much easier.
So, I went in with the hopes that I might find my daughter some nightgowns (as the one slip she's using as a nightgown is going through constant repairs every time I wash it...it's just slowly separating and pilling no matter if I wash the thing by hand even) and maybe a robe (since she's been asking for a robe for about a year now). I was AMAZED when I found not one robe, but TWO on the .25 rack, both complete with belts (a problem with used robes it seems)!
One is even a Hello Kitty robe, so it will go perfect with her spa bath set for her birthday (the dark pink one has Hello Kitty on the back). I'm going to wrap the Hello Kitty robe and mark it from her brother for her birthday and I'll give her the pink robe as part of her dad's and my gifts to her.
I went looking around the rest of the used store, since I was there, honestly hoping to find some nightgowns hiding (no luck there) and found a cool Corelle bowl for 1.25. I've been looking for some of the smaller bowl sizes (odd I know as usually people get rid of those first) as I like to have them for steaming puddings and for serving side dishes in, so I grabbed it right away.
And don't worry about the nightgown thing. I figured out a way around that (more on that tomorrow).
So, all totaled I spent 1.75 at the used store, got two birthday gifts for my daughter and had a really good day that day.
How about you? Find anything cool at the used/thrift stores lately?
