March Thrifting Trip

thriftlovetrip3thriftlovetrip1

The beauty of being just a two hour drive from a major city is a lot more options for a half price day shopping excursion! This time I was accompanied by my mother (and assistant photographer!) Value Village’s half price sale was this past Monday and what a gorgeous day for it! Sunshine, clear dry roads and not too many traffic complaints. Save for the occasional: “What the hell is this guy doing?!” remark.

This trip was more focused on finding new spring product for the Store rather than my own interests but I did find a couple real gems including these amazing ankle boots! I am not able to read the label on them but you’d be surprised how comfortable they are. I think my smile doubled in size when I saw that they were a 6! Can you believe these were only $5?!

All they needed was a little TLC, easily achieved by painting up the toes to make them crisp and new! Now I’m very excited for warmer weather so I can wear them around!

Thrift Finds

Thrift FindsDuring tonight’s Thursday thrift adventure I found a couple unique items plus a nice Gaiam yoga mat I had been looking for (not pictured). The best yoga mat I’ve ever had was a cheap one from Value Village, so I have been watching for another one to try. I had heard Gaiam mats are hit and miss so here’s hoping it is non-stick!

I started my evening with a stop at the jewellery rack. I was drawn to two pieces, a gold chain with anchor pin pendant and a multi coloured necklace. I later found out the one necklace is actually a $50 Fossil necklace, score! I think the anchor one will be really fun for summer.

I then veered over to the assorted housewares section and heard a piece of apple green pottery calling my name. It’s not perfect, it’s full of drips – and I love it! It has found a very cozy home in my kitchen.

With a 30% off coupon I snagged all these pieces for under $20!

1. Gaiam Yoga Mat $7
2. Pottery $6
3. Necklaces $5
Total: $20
