I do apologize if you read my blog in a feed reader and have to do a bit of scrolling.
Let us start with the Humane Society thrift store and my number one score of the entire day:
My cats are very interested in this...
Oh, it's a $70 LL Bean barn coat for $3. Yessssss.
All of the kids clothing was 50 cents:
(Birthday shirt is for next year.)
Because she can't walk unassisted yet, the kid doesn't/can't wear skirts most of the time. But I think she'll be able to by the time this fits - it's Baby Gap and sooooo cute. Thinking ahead, thinking positive!
Tiny onesie to stencil and paint.
$1 each - the Thrashers shirt is huge and is for my husband. RIP Thrashers, we already miss you.
I think these were either 50 cents or a dollar each. I screamed about the Henrietta Lacks book (been dying to read it). The hockey book is for my husband. Christopher Moore rules (LOVED Lamb). And, well, Backyardigans.
Not shown - the Humane Society had gotten a massive donation of cat treats from a major brand. They were asking for a $2 donation per "strip" (the treats were hanging on strips). Each strip had 12 bags. Each bag usually costs $1.30 or more. I bought 3 strips. YESSSSSS. Happycats.
Next store is also independent and therefore crazycheap:
Levis and Old Navy jeans for me. $3 a pair. One pair a bit too big, one pair a tiny bit too small. It will be OK soon, I hope.
$3 comfy Lee shorts. Big, but they fit. Good for wearing around the house, I think.
$3 shirt for me, $1 shirt for my kid.
50 cents each. The breastfeeding book is for a pregnant friend (I have my own copy), and I may either give or lend her the Goer book as well (it's a classic!).
Random cup! 50 cents, reusable ceramic travel mug. It didn't look like it had ever been used. It may replace my metal and plastic travel mugs.
Tired yet? Don't be - there's more! Next we went to Value Village:
Kid clothes first - tags in the pictures tell the prices, but almost everything was $1.29 or $2.29. Something was half price, but I am not sure what.
(I am in love with that green shirt.)
Mr. Owl is pajamas, but I don't think my kid will care.
The pink pants kind of remind me of maternity pants. Is that weird? That's weird. I take it back. The jeans were OMG PRICEY at $3.29, but they also are Old Navy and will fit her now.
And shirts for me:
Detail of back. This shirt is SO soft and so cute - and not a fakey fake, it's a real place (and the shirt costs $22 from them). Oh, and when I just now Googled it, I found out that apparently it's someone from Cake Boss? (I don't watch it but yay?)
Love the book, have scandalously never seen the musical but couldn't resist.
ONE MORE STORE. Phew.
Goodwill. $1.50 each. No Biting...kind of essential right now. Ahem.
And this was from a random dash into Goodwill earlier in the week
Gymboree, about $3. Too big for my kid and they have a tiny marker spot (that didn't come out with two different spot-treatments, ah well) but so pretty/cute.
Oh and these thrifted gifts from my friend:
Thanks for looking! You're fabulous! You're gorgeous! You're wonderful!
PS We also went into Big Lots. I got a birthday present for a friend's kid, some orzo ($1! Yum!) and some Purell. Not nearly as exciting as all of the above.
