Thrift Treasures

I've become a Thrift Store addict.
Mostly Vintage, Remade, Recycled, and Renewed.
Being green and saving money while helping others!
Join me in this treasure hunt.

Oh, I may also include tidbits of my boring life. I apologize in advance.

  • 9 skeins of Schachenmay nomotta saskia yarn: $10.00 

The volunteer at the thrift store was still putting prices on different yarns that were donated this morning. She set aside this yarn and told us(me and this other shopper) that this is thicker. I am so glad I got it. I may use it to make hats for the family or continue to use it to make hats for chemo patients.

  • My Little Pony Rainbow Dash backpack: $3.00

Look at this cute baby! AHH! I don’t even follow My Little Pony and I couldn’t resist!! I am going to toss it in my mesh bag and toss it in the wash tomorrow. I just want to snuggle with it!

P.S. If you look at the tag you can see that it was being sold in 2013!! It isn’t even that old/used!

  • JCrew corduroy pants: $3.00

Cooler weather means I can buy more corduroy pants. After this rainy summer, I think we will finally have a cold winter this year. We had a freak blizzard come by two years ago and it was AWESOME. School was shut down for a week. I basically had cabin fever in my apartment. I toughed the snow to get to my university and it ended up being closed for a whole week.

You can never go wrong with corduroy. =)

  • Coach Signature Print Mini Make up bag: $7.00 $3.50

One of my favorite thrift store is having a sale on bags this week. Today is the first day the store opens(they are closed Sunday and Monday) and ahh!!

I was about to walk out the store empty handed until I made my second visit to the shoe section. Apparently, someone had found this and decided to leave it behind. YAY FOR ME!

I can actually see myself stashing my lip balms and sunscreen in this. Or I just might use it like a clutch. I love it.

  • Vintage Station Coach Bag: $22.92

I went to another Goodwill and I was able to get this bag. Again, I didn’t hesitate with this bag because I don’t have this style! Ah. It is beautiful.

I looked on etsy and people have this bag listed at an insane price. I looked on eBay and it isn’t as steep. 

I love the classic Coach bags. It goes with EVERYTHING.

  • [Sealed] We bought a Zoo: $2.92

I am so glad I purchased this at Goodwill today. I just looked it up online and Best Buy is still selling this DVD. I got it for a mere $2.92 + tax and they are selling it for $14.99! You can look at the SKU numbers! It is the same DVD!

  • Various volumes of Hana-Kimi: $0.77 each

A random walk towards the book section yield this manga haul. There were other mangas but this is one I recognized because of the many “live” adaptions of it. I’ve seen the Japanese, Taiwanese, and Korean adaptation of this manga. I’d have to say…the Japanese one is my favorite. I was super annoyed at how she was so stupid in the Taiwanese. 

  • Vintage Coach Court Bag: $22.92

Even though I already have a Coach Court bag in black(but the straps are different), I couldn’t help myself to another one. 

Apparently my mom wants to use it instead of her own (new) Court bag she bought a long time ago. 

So this bag will probably go to my mom for the time being.

I just fell in love with it when I held it in the store. I love that it looks great as a crossbody AND as a handbag(like literal hand-bag).

  • Pastel Pink Kipling crossbody bag: $4.94

My mom and I wanted to check out a Goodwill that we haven’t visited. We didn’t find much but I was able to find this perfect Kipling bag! 

The lighting in my room does not give this bag justice to its awesomeness.

I love it.

It is adorable and functional!

  • Patagonia fleece jacket: $3.99 $1.99

Another Patagonia item I was able to get today at the thrift store for 50% off! What are the chances?

I love it.

I tried it on after I tossed it in the wash and it is absolutely perfect. I didn’t even try it on at the thrift store. I just saw the size and thought that it would probably fit. =)

I love finding Patagonia items at thrift stores because they are lightweight and warm!

  • BP. Cardigan: $3.99 $0.99

Look at what I was able to find today! It is a routine my mom and I go through when she goes to a particular farmer’s market. She goes grocery shopping and I visit the thrift store next to it to find whatever I can find.

I love the 3/4 sleeves because I always roll my sleeves up when I wear…anything.

How was I able to get it for 99 cents? Well, this thrift store has a color of the week where it is 99 cents and then there is a 50% off color also!

  • LeSportsac Tote bag: $3.33 $1.66

Another item that I bought at the thrift store that has their sale on Wednesdays… Also another item I held my breath for when I got to the registers because I wasn’t sure if their bags(showcase bags are excluded) were 50% off.

They were! WAHOO!

I love that it still has its makeup bag!

I’ve been quite lucky with LeSportsac bags! I love them all.

  • [Brand removed] Dress: $1.98 $0.89

Here is a cute dress I bought from the kid’s section of the thrift store that has their special sales on Wednesday! 

It is cotton, polka dots, and has pockets. What more can I ask for?

  • Soundgirl plaid dress: $2.98 $1.19

Mom and I drove for a bit to go to this particular thrift store that has a sale every Wednesday where adult clothes are $1.19 and children’s clothes are $0.89.

I was able to buy this plaid dress.

This made me think about a Project Runway challenge that had the designers design for the Southern woman. Apparently, plaid is very “Southern”. No.

  • Pins & Needles knit cardigan: $3.49 $1.74

I wish we had this last week when my family went to a wedding. My mom was scouring around the house to find a cardigan that suited her.

I absolutely adore the knit lace in the back!
