When I finally got the news that I would be fine, I needed friend-and-shopping therapy. And so I ran away to Amy's neck of the woods.
We hit three thrift stores, but I don't think I really bought all that much, as you'll see. But we also went to Big Lots, Dollar Tree, a craft store that shall go unnamed because I disagree with all of its politics but I was there so..., and Tuesday Morning. I bought lots of paper/glue for my new Silhouette Cameo and I look forward to making a "pretending to be a craft blogger" post to show you things I've made, like etched glasses, etched mason jars, cards, and more. I also bought some kitchen tools and some odds and ends. It was a shopping spree without spending a lot at all.
Here's what I bought at the thrift stores - and look, I am trying the "hanging things and taking pictures of them" approach again. Ah, I'll never be a lifestyle or fashion blogger either...
First up, the Humane Society store. I spent $20 total (with tax) and will try to break down prices, as always.
|Cute, comfy Old Navy shirt with snowflakes. So much better in person. I think this was $1.50.|
|I am pretty sure I have exactly this Old Navy black waffle shirt in exactly this size. I love it. $1.50?|
|Unexciting black Target t-shirt. $1.50|
|Sort of silly brown skirt that I somehow fell in love with. $1.|
|I still haven't tried this Ann Taylor Loft skirt on, but it was only $1, it was in my size, and it's really nice (I love the little dangly bit at the belt) so I took a risk.|
|Squishy waffle hoodie from the Limited. Greener than my picture shows. $2, I think?|
|Puma shirt that WILL fit the kid. Matches the stuffed logo-Puma she has. 50 cents.|
|Black soft cords for the kid. I forget what brand. 50 cents.|
Then we went to two more stores - another indie store and Goodwill. I forgot to take a picture of the plain glass square votive holder that I got for 35 cents but now you can imagine it - I'll etch it (or maybe vinyl it?) and share it here another time.
|At the indie store, I gave in to these jeans. They're skinny jeans from the Gap - I need more skinny jeans to wear with boots. Plus they're a bit short, which actually works SO well to tuck into boots. No smushing. $3.|
And that was my thrifting day! Stay tuned in 2014 for more craft posts! More serious posts! More....posts!
