~Salvation Army Clothes and Bag Haul~

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

My town's Salvation Army Thrift Store....reflects my town. There are rare occasions I can go in there and find anyway worth while purchasing other than books for myself and the boys. Occasionally, I'll run up on a piece of clothing but the place seems wiped out daily. My town is poor...with people trying to survive. That Sal Val Thrift Store is its reflection.

Today, we ( me and kids) stopped in to check out books and as they were browsing , I found this red swing short trench from Cato. I can usually wear a large in Cato brand stuff at the top and this jacket was a perfect fit! $2.99
I almost didn't get this bag($2.99)...Its a bit beat up inside but it was a Maxx New York tapestry bag so couldn't leave it! lol! I'll tuck it away for the fall/winter season! The all the black detail is 100% leather... Some one is selling this bag here for $30.

~Weekend Goodwill Haul~

I hit the Goodwill this weekend. I go every OTHER weekend, when kids are at their dad's, so I can focus. I need maximum focus for digging and so that I won't spend over my budget. Yes, I have a budget at the Goodwill too. Seriously, You walk out of a thrift store with stuff worth hundreds and have spent $100. That's too much...unless your buying furniture...oh, digress.... on to the goodies....:)

Vintage necklaces( no name or signature): $2 a piece. I didn't wanna pay $2 for them...but, eh.
 Vintage Marcus Bros. Raffia Bag: $3...apparently, these bags were considered high straw bags in the 1950s...

Check out this ad for them....found this info HERE!!
Brand new Tommy Hilfiger Espadrilles....when is the last time I've owned anything Tommy Hilfiger? lol! $4.50

Dollhouse Oxford Pumps: $4.50
Prepare yourself....all these scarves were $1 apiece...some of them are vintage, signed, designer...O.M.G.

Vintage Daniel la Foret Scarf  100% silk....I've own a Daniel la Foret scarf before...
You read it right! An Yves Saint Laurent 100% silk scarf...laid out, its looks like the Japanese flag with an "x" thru it. Truly vintage.:)

This scarf...I don't know if its vintage but it was made especially to be sold in Neiman's which alot of designers did back in the days.

 Echo...don't think its vintage...but its Echo. I've worked at Dillard's and Hecht's( Macy's)

Adrienne Landau Studio.

I found all those scarves at one store....who gave all that goodness away?
