     I was out and about with my oldest daughter yesterday when a thrift store jumped out in front of me. I had no choice but to stop. We were only there for about an hour and I seriously scored some good buys. My total for the day was $26.50. I came home with:

This adorable sundress.

This really cute long(maxi) dress, that is about to become a shorter dress.

The watercolor fabric on the left will be turned into something else.
The long black dress is beaded, and had stitching pulling out, so I got it for $1.
The pale blue top is a light weight whispy material.

The lacey white camisole still has Dress Barn tags on it.
The brown shirt in the back is a super soft t-shirt fabric.
The green skirt on the right was on the dollar rack.
The black skirt on top of the green one is beautifully beaded and will work for my diva for shows.

     I managed to get smiles from two of the girls with this shopping trip. By next week, the shop will have all new things. Yipee! I decided not to buy myself anything until I am more successful with my diet. If something super is on the dollar rack, I will re-think that.


  1. I do like that black sundress.
    Great finds.


  2. You got your money from the first dress alone - the rest is bonus swag!

    Keep going towards getting healthy and I know there will be a special treat on the rack waiting for you.

  3. Love all of these finds, Patrice!

    Isn't thrift shopping fun? :)

  4. I love the print of that maxi dress!.

  5. What a haul! I love the first sundress. It has such clean, classic lines!

    Hmm...I wonder what my boys would think if I came down to the barn in a cute little sundress?!

  6. What lovely things especially that little sun dress. Fabulous bargains!

  7. Great buys. I love getting dress for less. JB

  8. What a good shopper!! I love that black sundress. I think you did so good. I love what they look like now and I can't wait to see how you change them.

  9. Oh! I am trying hard not to be jealous over that first dress.....

  10. That is my kind of Thrift Store find! I love love love shopping at second hand stores. I have been holding off on buying clothes myself, but I am getting the weight down so maybe by the end of summer.

    I dropped by from Over 40 Follow Me Friday. I hope you can stop by too.
