Weekend recap

Hi all! I took a wee break from the blogging world the past few days. Friday my mom and I hit up a few of our favorite thrift stores. I didn't have much luck finding anything Friday, but it was still fun looking around. The man in front of us at check out was buying (I kid you not) 20 or more thermoses? Apparently he cuts trees down in Texas and they get really thirsty? I am not so sure his story checks out. You meet the most interesting people where I thrift. A lot of you seem surprised by the deals I find while thrifting so I thought I would give you a glimpse at two of my favorite stores. (I wish I could have snapped a shot of the thermos pile)

Thrift and Dollar

This is my go to spot for knick-knacks. Every day three price tag colors will be half off. On Friday it was yellow, orange, and pink. I really wish I would have snagged the E.T. He was only $2.45 after all. Unfortunately when I went back to pick him up some woman had already scooped him. Oh well, you snooze you lose.

Village Discount

This is where I go for most of my vintage clothes. The store is a bit dirty and semi-intimidating, but the prices are incredible. For example, check out that pretty blouse for only 90 cents. Guess what? It was only 45 cents! On major holidays everything in the store is half off. Yesterday they were having a half off sale throughout the store for St.Patty's day...needles to say I picked up a few items. I will share my finds on Thrifted Thursday later this week.

Now you all know some of my secrets. I don't shop at antique stores (often) because I like the challenge of finding vintage pieces at low prices at these thrift stores. I hate to spend more that $20 on any given thrift day. Anywho, I also saw 21 Jump Street with Brian on Friday, and I have to say - it was hilarious!!

Have a good rest of your weekend everyone!
