Somehow I missed this thread before now, glad it got bumped!

I am a thrift store junkie! I love Value Village the most. There are 4 of them I visit semi regularly.

I have been BROKE recently, and my bff that I usually go with just had major surgery she is recovering from, AND I simply DO NOT NEED any more stuff at the moment, so I haven't gone in probably a whole month!

Here's some pictures of finds:
Baby clothes trip #1 on 1/2 off baby clothes sale day:
http://picasaweb.google.com/cthulhug...22381145839090
This all cost about $12

My awesome Maternity! Vinyl! Pants! They were $2.50 in perfect condition. They were perfect to wear to a friend's b-day party a few weeks ago, where she encouraged goth club wear as an ode to her younger days
http://picasaweb.google.com/cthulhug...30533369922930
Also the Kate Spade bag in perfect condition for $2 that I really liked, didn't even notice the brand, now think I will resell it on eBay or something for a little $ rather than use it.

Another happening upon a 1/2 off baby clothes day:
http://picasaweb.google.com/cthulhug...30550549792146
You can't really see juts how much is all stacked there, but there is a LOT and it again was not at all very much $.

AND my favorite recent find! We only had this little loveseat that didn't match anything. I happened across this couch at VV for $40:

I LOVE it!

Careful with that--every "Kate Spade" bag I have ever thrifted has actually been a fake, and pedaling a fake, even if you don't know it's fake, can get you kicked off Ebay.

I thrifted some cute clothes in the past 2 weeks for DS (he's 4 and it is really hard to find stuff in good condition). Some EUC Rugby style shirts were my favs. They were from Goodwill, and here they don't do any % off days, so they were still 2.50ish. This particular Goodwill always has good books, and I found a bunch of American Girl books to put away for 18 month old DD (to go with a new Gotz doll I picked up at a discount, non thrifted). It will be a few years, but the main character has brown hair like the doll, etc. and I thought it would be a nice gift (there were 6-7 new books).

I've also yard saled the past two weekends. My DD hates the car, but these were nice neighborhood sales so there was minimal getting in/out of the car, and the stuff was great.

Some scores:
Sandbox excavator toy (where you sit and pull the various handles to make it scoop sand. Mechanical, not battery operated). $9 and DS is in love.

Boon Potty bench, EUC/like new. $2.

Lands End like new playdress to put away for dd...25 cents
Healthtex peasant shirt like new 25 cents (for DD as well).

Large shelf...4 feet or so, with big ledge and a pole for a blanket. All painted white. I basically had been asking DH to make me one like this for DD's room (it looks like something from Pottery Barn). $3. No materials or work needed other than hanging it.

A stack of a dozen cloth napkins, $1

A big pile of boys tees...mix of long sleeve/short sleeve, mostly name brands like Mulberribush and Gymbo for DS for $5.

about 6 pairs of pants for DS, some in his current size, and some in the next size up for 50 cents to a dollar each (Lands End, Talbots, etc. all EUC).

Various homeschooling supplies/materials/activities for 1-3 bucks each (Hard cover of Polar Express, a McMillan teaching set with stories, activities, art projects, etc., Boggle Jr. game with all of the correct pieces, etc.)

French memo board in colors that coordinate w/ DDs room. Something I wanted anyway. $2, and perfect for her growing supply of hair clips/accessories.

I passed up a marble maze set I found at a local thrift. It would have been 3.50 (half off day) but we already have one. It was a nice wooden set in box.

eta: excellent, sturdy, wooden kid chair for $3. We have one or two, but Dh just built the kids a long kid-sized table for art/reading/crafts/etc. upstairs and the timing was perfect

OK, I posted pictures and prices of today's haul on my blog here. I spent $14. 30, not $10 like I originally thought, but still, not bad!

My best find was a $99 Geosafari system with 8 sets of cards that retail for $14.95 each, all for $3! I haven't been this excited since I got an Ergo for $3.

I'll look through the whole thread later, but I like thrift stores/rummage sales too. I went to a huge church rummage sale this spring and got my son's outerwear for this upcoming winter, and possibly the next one too since the coat and snow pants are a bit on the big side on purpose. The jacket was Land's End and the snow pants were OshKosh. I also found Hanna Andersson tights for 50 cents!

I've found some nice kids clothes at our local Salvation Army and Goodwill stores. Land's End, Gap, Gymboree, rarely Hanna but it happens now and then... if it's a huge size I buy it and will just store it here. I have gotten Land's End, Columbia, LL Bean, Eddie Bauer, etc. for myself. I'm about a size 18W so it's not easy to find clothes for me. But any nice stretchy pullover shirts are good. I've found some great tunic style tops there for myself.

It's also a good place to look for fabric if you like to sew (either fabric scraps or just tablecloths, curtains, etc.). Got a baby monitor there too (in case DS wants to go outside or play downstairs during DD's nap).

I occasionally find nice stuff for really good prices at Marshall's or TJ Maxx. Not really thrift but it's heavily marked down.

I love thrifting! There is a little shop in the next small town over from where I live. The woman that runs it somehow gets stuff for her shop either free or very close to it. Nothing in that shop is priced over $10, including furniture! I have gotten so many adorable children's clothing items, a dresser and linens and spent something like $6 for everything! Majority of the clothes are 50 cents and then every once in awhile she has a 1/2 price day!

In the summer I also frequent garage sales.

There is a Goodwill down the road from us but after being spoiled by my favorite thrift shop, I find it too expensive.

Woot, the roads are finally open and I can go thrifting again:. They were closed due to the flooding we are having.

I am seriously going through withdrawals.

Figured I'd go once a month this summer to load up on school clothes for the LOs.

I got:

For DD:

2 zip cardigans from GAP
v-neck sweater
sweater from Nordstrom
Carter's shirt
2 pc. Old Navy purple wool suit - blazer/skirt w/ attached slip
Macy's 3 pc. blk/wht polka dot skirt/tank/cardigan NWT
NWT 2 pc. skirt/blouse plaid purple/cream
2. pc Osk Kosh suit - navy floral skirt/navy blazer
Old Navy long sleeve tee/polo

For DS:

GAP raincoat/windbreaker
2 GAP sweaters


I spent $80 which is more than usual but the pieced outfits were pricier ($9-15/each), but are flawless and absolutely adorable!

Oh, and I got myself a cute American Eagle blu/wht striped tube dress

I love me some thrift stores! I usually frequent the locally owned places, but I have one goodwill I adore. I also really love me some garage and yard sales, but me and my friends have been a little burnt out on them lately.

I also buy most of my stuff secondhand.

Now I pretty much only go when I'm in the area. There is one up the street from me, but it's not in great shape at all and priced high. Still, every once in a while I'll sneak a peak at it, the consignment store, and the baby consignment shop when I'm at my library. When I go to my doctor I'll go to the one near it. Tomorrow I MAY hit up one or two when I check out the natural food store on the same street as them.

I'm trying to cut out buying so much baby stuff, as the "pressure" I'm putting on myself is stressing me out and I'm trying to do the no spend July, so a lot of my shopping is on hold. Although there is a yard sale on Saturday advertising LPs so I may have to check that out.

Hey all! I've started blogging my thrift finds. You can see yesterday's bins haul here. Four shirts, a skirt, a dress, and some PJ pants, five pillowcases, three pieces of fabric, a parisol, and at least 20" of wooden beads, for less than $20. I feel good about that!

Dh's aunt left today (thank GOD) and as she was leaving, she slipped me a 20 (belive me... I earned it!).

So I'm going to the thrift on my lunch break. Sing with me!

Goin' to the thrift store and I'm- gonna get a de-e-e-al.

I haven't been going lately because I'm in dallas and it takes forever to drive to a good one.

Hey, a thrifting tribe! How did I miss this? I looooove thrifting!!
AnnetteMarie, you really got an Ergo for $3??? That does take the prize for best find!
Let me think about my latest finds...
It was clothes mostly this time:
- a mexican skirt 2 euros
- a pair of white Levi's, still perfectly white for just 1 euro (which is about $1,50 now I think)
- a really cute vest 2 euros
- a sundress, two cardigans and PJ's with tags still attached from the Steiff brand (thought they just made bears, who knew they also do clothes) for DD, paid 10 euros for the lot
- a "Burger King, Home of the Whopper" t-shirt as a joke for my brothers birthday, 50 cents.
Some books for the kids, I think it was 4 for 2 euros.

I could do it every day, but it's not a good idea.

I'm back! I got a stainless steel mixing bowl (I'm always on the prowl for those-- I use them for everthing!) And a really cute vase that was half of (just cause I liked it)

Grand total 2.48$ Wooohoo! I just realized that it's 6 miles from work to there, so I shouldn't go too often!.

For a dollar, I found a set of three pretty canisters with roses on them. I punched holes on their bottoms and turned them into containers for my herbs for my new apartment. Made a fun afternoon project.

I am wearing really cool army pants (made for a kid, but I am short and a child's size 14) that have wonderful pockets. They are so comfortable.

I love thrift stores,but I am sometimes too thrifty to shop at them! I live in Seattle and found that the best place to find pants/jeans is the big Goodwill off Jackson. Also there are good deals at the Crown Hill Value Village. I have had the best luck finding things at those two places.

Great deals! I'm especially coveting the sling and duvet.

I'm gearing up for some great thrifting tomorrow. Mama hasn't had a break in a while, and I'm planning to kick some butt. I also managed to save back $60 in grocery money in case something big tickles my fancy. I'm looking for a kid-sized hutch.

*snort* What if it's a wooden hand-carved hutch made by fairies, and I toss some organic food in every now and again while singing a pentatonic "come and eat" tune?

I'm uncertain. I don't have kids, myself, so I'm hesitant to have an opinion.

As long as you don't spank them to make them get in there, it's fine
