I don't get to the thrift store nearly as often as I'd like to nowadays. When my having a car full-time became a reality last fall, I really thought I'd have more time for running around errand-wise. Silly girl.
My favorite thrift shop closes at 6pm. It's where I find my super buys. So lately I'm only getting there once a month if I'm lucky. Or when I am sorely in need of an item.
We do have a local Goodwill store that I manage to make a quick stop at on a weekly basis. I noticed while there a few days ago that they have once again raised their prices on childrens clothes. I wanted to say "C'mon people, this is a store for poor people!! Do you really think I'm willing to pay $5 for a girl's t-shirt when I can get one for $3.88 at Walmart?" But I exhibited incredible self-control and kept my mouth shut.
However, outside of their clothing department, I am still managing to find some occasional treasures. So I thought I'd share my latest finds. In a non-gloating, look-what-I-found sort of way;)
I paid $1.99 for this trio of baskets. I really liked the multi-colored stripes. I have them hard at work holding personal grooming items in my bathroom.
My kids are not into name-brand items. Nike or Noshi, they really could care less. And I prefer that it stays that way. But even I have to admit that on some items a name brand does define quality. Or maybe I'm just looking to legitimize my love of the Liz Claiborne label? Could be.
Anyway, I came across a pair of Nikes for the Artist with a price tag of $6. They looked like they had barely (if at all) been worn. That's better than $15 at Kmart for non-Nike shoes. And though he has no idea what that check mark stands for, he thinks the shoes are pretty neat:)
