This week let's start off with my FLORA DOORA GIVEAWAY...if you have not entered yet...you still have time...click here for the details...you don't want to miss this one!!!
On my way to the beach last week I discovered a new thrift shop...so I hit the brakes in my rental car (more on that later...I will have a post coming up soon about this subject) and turned right in!!! First thing I spotted was a huge sign that read...ALL CLOTHES $1.00...I knew for sure that I would not find a thing...WRONG...I found three items...a dress...a cute BEACHY sweater and a pair of pants that feel like a million dollars...I'm so glad I spotted the YELLOW COTTAGE...what a cute name!!!
Mr.CC's birthday was Friday so our baby girl came home from college to see her DADDY...she looooves her DADDY!!! Get the three ladies in this house together and what do you think happens? Yes...your right...they go SHOPPING and this day we decided to go THRIFTIN! We first made a stop at Goodwill...no luck there...then our next stop was at a salvage store...we really did good here. This salvage store carries a lot of Target merchandise, but they also carry items from upscale clothing stores and gift shops. Haley and Mary Claire both found some really good deals here...upscale home decor at 80% off...you should have seen them loading up the buggie...as they say...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!!!! I only came home with a bath rug for the beach condo...not that exciting. After leaving the salvage store we headed over to one of my favorite consignment shops and there I had some luck...check the pics to see what I found! Now it's your turn to show off what you found this week...don't be shy...it's okay to brag about your NIFTY THRIFTY TREASURES!!!
I'm sooooo lovin' this cute BEACH sweater...perfect for late fall and early spring here on the GULF COAST...cost me $1.00...now that's real NIFTY THRIFTY!!!!
Ann Taylor Loft is one of my favorite shops...love the clothes...they always seem to fit so well and I when I find pieces in consignment shops for pennies...I'm one really happy gal...got this one for only $4.50 (it still had the dry cleaners tag attached)!
Another one of my favorite shops is Talbot's...found this BRAND NEW (tags still on it) silk skirt for $11.00...I will be wearing this to some of weddings that we have coming up this fall.
This is a first for me...I found this dress for $1.00!!!
