~Haul~ Pre-Thanksgiving Thrift Store and Beauty Supply Store...

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

My youngest chap lost his coat at school so we went on an ill-fated hunt for a coat til' I can get to the school lost and found on Monday. Ill-fated as in we were in our mall-less, Target-less, wack hometown looking for a lightweight, yet warm coat for the next couple of days. Of course....we didn't find a coat...but I wouldn't be my mother's daughter if I didn't find something for myself. LOL!

I finally scored a  hot pink clutch from the Sal Val. I don't know how vintage it is but it has a skinny-80s strap included. Its sorta large, which makes it all the better. I should do a post on my clutch collection....I love vintage clutches. You can't pay me to buy one of these Rue 21-F21 $20 cheap knockoffs when they are at the thrift store for $3 or less.
Next, I found a vintage Ritter Straw Handbag. Ritter started making designer straw bags in the 1930's and this is probably from the 60s. The clasp, the raffia/straw and the interior are in excellent condition.

I got both bags for $4.48

I went into the BSS because I don't know about your local private owned BSS', but ours sell kids clothes. I didn't find a coat but I got these three earrings...that I saw on a web store ( that I will not name) for $8 a piece.:/ I will NOT knock the hussle but I paid $1 a piece for these.

I also picked up a new foundation by Ruby Kisses...

Spent $5.25 in the BSS

Felt great afterwards...probably won't be partaking in Black Friday...I never do because I never can.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
