I went, I saw, and I bought!! I love going to thrift stores, you never know what you will find. If you know your brands, you can find some really nice clothes for just a few dollars each.
Here is a very attractive blouse in a lovely color:
J.Jill is a wonderful brand and the blouse new would have cost at least 200% more than I paid.
Next, I found a silk sweater from Ann Taylor:
I am thinking of unwinding the sweater and re-using the lovely silk yarn.
I found another nice empire waist blouse by a brand I see at macys:
Next up is a light jacket shirt by Chicos, would look fabulous over a white tank or shirt. It looks better in person that it does in the photo.
On this shirt/jacket, I saved over $100, I bet.
But wait! I was there to hunt for sweaters!! Was I successful? You bet! First up is a teal sweater that will be re-made into a sweater wrap with crochet trim when I get done with it:
Looks pretty boring now, but it has potential, I tell you!
Last up was my best find of the day, a 100% wool Ralph Lauren blue sweater. Here it is before the felting:
I will add a picture of it felted in the morning, so you can see how much it shrunk. I always wash the clothes I buy to remove the Thrift Store Cooties. You don’t know where they have been, y’know? Best to be safe.
I will document what I do with the sweaters above. It will be fun to work with them both!
Anyone care to share their Thrift Store Outing? Carla
