I visited my local thrift store this week, and found a couple of finds in the clothing department. Since I am down a couple of sizes, I wanted to pick up a few items without breaking the bank.
I found this lovely top by SweetPea, a brand carried at Nordstroms, which looks very flattering on:
It looks terrific with jeans, too. The next top I found was from the Serenade brand:
Again, this is very flattering on- even better since it only cost me $1.50 each due to a half off sale. LOL
I also found a book for my DH by a favorite author; and also a retro pyrex dish. All in all, a good day!
I love hunting for items at the thrift store! I guess it is the recycle/reuse philosophy I have, or perhaps the thrill of the hunt? Any others who feel the same way as me? I know you are out there! LOL
By the way, the thrift store is also a perfect place for craft supplies. One of my favorite projects I did involved buying a couple of those long “teacher” dresses that were in style about 15 years ago and cut them into strips of fabric. I then crocheted them into a large bag or purse. Of course, I have a tutorial for that here. You could also wrap the fabric around cording and make a fabric bowl for your home or perhaps a rag rug. The ideas are endless!!
Enjoy your day!! Carla
