I had an awesome thrift store day the other day--I found a brand new baby monitor for $10, and a Radio Flyer tricycle for $10, among other things. I even blogged about it:

WTG!!!

Mine include a Polish pottery dish for $1.00 and a brand new Farberware fondue pot (with forks) for $5.00.

I've been looking at getting a curtain for Dd's window in her room (south facing) and had been searching for 6 months or so. Last week I went to Value village and found a professionally made curtain in the right length for $9.99. I just have to narrow it a bit and it will work perfectly. FWIW, a drapery store wanted to charge me $75 for just the labour alone, and it would've costed me roughly $50 in materials if I were to make it myself.

Today I found a Britax Parkway booster seat, like new condition, tags attached, for $7.00. It will be a great extra seat for when I drive another kiddo in my car.

I found a really pretty Zara dress and United Colors of Benneton skirt yesterday, I paid £14 for the both. It's actually what I went into the charity shop looking for too!
I've also found blueberry and heart shaped Le Cruset crocks for less than £5 each at TK Maxx!
That has got the be one of the greatest stores ever.
Back in the states I got a barely used, decent bread machine for $10, I used it for a good 3 years and gave it away just recently now that I can make bread by hand.

I found my EllaRoo wrap at a kids consignment store for $27 ($100 new).

3 sheer curtain panels w/ embroidered butterflies from pottery barn for dd's room $2 each.

A Talbots linen skirt, brand new with tags for $4.

And it wasn't a thrift store, but a department store clearance, but the dress I wore to my brother's wedding this weekend was originally marked $90. I got it for $14.99. Here's a pic. I'm the one in the cream with pink and green flowers.

I love long, form-fitting jean skirts but apparently that is not the style anymore so they do not sell them at the mall or department stores.

I went to our local Goodwill last week and scored two really cute jean skirts for $5 each as well as a couple of cute t-shirts for $3 each. Woot woot!!

I scored a bag of actual Thomas the Train train tracks with 3 different bridges and one station plus a bag of about 20 Thomas the Train engines at Goodwill for $20 total. Just one engine costs around $20. The whole set had to have cost over $400 new. My son was overjoyed when we gave it to him on his birthday!

The best part was that I had been pricing train tables on Craigslist but didn't quite have enough money. I mentioned my Thomas the Train find to my neighbor. She asked if we had a table yet. When I told her we hadn't gotten around to it she promptly gave us her son's old one.

lather, rinse, repeat
