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.

  • [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!

  • Dior Homme SweatShirt: $3.49 $1.74

It was hard to leave this behind at Value Village today. I don’t even care how oversized it is. I just wanted it because of its interesting zipper placement.

  • American Eagle White tank: $3.49 $1.74

This top can work with so many outfits! I was in a long line at Value Village just to get this and a Snack Happened reusable bag.

I love it. I love the lace detail in the back.

The pocket is a nice touch. It seems like a normal tank top in the front but when you walk away, you will show off the lace back!

May I just mention how another customer was able to buy a super cute Vera Bradley purse and it was $6.49. Due to today’s sale, it would have only been $3.24!??!!  JEALOUS.

  • Snack Happened Reusabe Cloth bag: $0.49 $0.24

Who is excited to store their snacks in this reusable/washable bag? ME!
These are great. It isn’t stiff like the other ecofriendly, reusable snack bags I’ve seen.

Greatest part, these are still sold online at the Itzy Ritzy Store for $9.99. I bought mine for $0.24(Thanks to VV’s 50% off sale), ultra green price and way of obtaining it!

Oh, I bought it at Value Village. I would have purchased all of them if they had any more.

Coupon used $1.00 off any Pantene Pro-V styling product x 3.

  • $10 Target Gift Card: Free
  • Aveeno Set:  $9.99 $6.98

  • Softsoap set: $4.99 $3.38
  • Purell set: $1.74

Hurray for clearance + coupons + gift card deals.

Look at what I was able to do here, here, and here.

  • Vintage Coin/Card wallet:$6.96

I was able to buy this beautiful card wallet at Goodwill on Sunday. I did not even hesitate to buy it.

It will go nicely with my other Coach wallet.

I have a ton of membership cards such as CVS, Vitamin World, etc and I see myself stashing my cards in this keychain wallet.
