This trip made me realize that I'm not quite as spry as I used to be. I used to be able to go to 4 or 5 stores in a row. Now after 2, I'm already running out of steam. You'll see.
First stop, Value Village. The issues I mentioned in my roundup post were in full effect - staples in things! Holes in things because of those staples! But also great prices, especially on kid clothes. It wasn't as amazing as I wanted it to be, but I got a few things.
|99 cents on the left, $1.49 (Hello Kitty!) on the right.|
|Capris, pink pants, jeans, $2.49 each.|
|Two shirts for me - the purple was $2.49 and the plain black shirt (yay) was a half-price color so it was only $1.25.|
Then onward to my favorite indie stores that benefits animals. It's always so hit or miss at this one but the prices are just so incredible. Kid clothes are 50 cents per piece (up to 6x), the shirts I got were $1.50 each, and the skirts were $1 each. Oh and I got one book for 50 cents. When I paid, the woman "warned" me that the shirts were $1.50 - I wonder if someone complained once...
|My friend found two of these shirts - one in my size, one in another friend's size. Score!|
|So soft and comfy.|
|Plain shirts are way too hard to come by. This one's Ann Taylor Loft - so it's older (Loft now doesn't have the AT modifier) but it's perfect.|
|I keep swearing I won't buy books and then I find things like this that I really really want to read and I give in.|
|Shirts for the kid - the top one is Carters and doesn't seem to have ever been worn/washed. The neckline is kind of wonky though. We'll see. Love the cupcake shirt on the bottom.|
|Pants for the kid. The jeans are a bit big but they're Janie and Jack, which is a higher-end brand, so I grabbed them. The kid liked the middle pants, which are sort of yoga-pants-ish with a little jeweled crown on the waistband.|
|Plain black shirt and OMG IT'S A DRAGON FLYING THROUGH RAINCLOUDS OF HEARTS. Mine mine mine.|
|Why did I buy a white skirt when I spill things on my clothes every 5 minutes and/or sit down on ketchup or whatever? I do not know, but this was cute and fit well so I thought hey, why not for a whole dollar.|
|Both things are too big for the kid now, but at 50 cents I couldn't resist. The skirt has shorts under it. I'm still trying to make skirts happen for her, although it's still tricky for her to wear them.|
|I am in love with the...hedgehog, I guess? And the other shirt is kind of odd and I grabbed it on a whim but might re-thrift.|
|Oops, the Gymboree shirt on the left was NWT so it was a whole two dollars. And adorable - but possibly too small for her. We'll see. The other shirt's pattern is made up of tiny repeating owls, I promise.|
|Finally, a new bag to use as a carry case for her talker. The bag we got with it is having zipper issues as well as various other problems. I think this one will work well. It was $3.|
Until next time!
