At one time in my life I was an avid Thrifter. It was in between one of my sewing hiatuses. I have always been a very careful my money and looked for great bargains. I have expensive taste I am told but I will not, I REPEAT will not throw away money. I like what I like, but I spend my money according to my situation and very wisely. I am not a fan of broke, though I am almost all the time, I try to always keep a little milk money as my Grandmother would say.
This weekend I decided to get out and about my fine city and surrounding areas. I had not been out and about to my local thrift stores in sometime, and I wanted to see what I had been missing. Goodwill is always my go too, and I have two within ten blocks of where I live, so of course I decided to go there first. I was happy with what I found there. I also visited a Goodwill Boutique, yes I said "Boutique". In one of your more affluent areas there is a Goodwill that sells mostly high end merchandise at a fairly good price. Here is what I left with:
A pair of BCBG heels and a Saks 5th Avenue wrap dress, brand new both with tags still on them. I was also on the hunt for a jean or chambray button down top and I found one at my local Goodwill!
