i had forgotten how successful (and fulfilling,
and ideal for my bank account) thrift shopping can be.
i recently went to value village,
oh bella, and buffalo exchange to peak through
their previously owned items.
to my credit,
when i visited value village, i went with the intention
of purchasing books and stuffed animals for my classroom.
i may or may not have come home with a few treats for myself.
but for such an affordable price,
i don’t think you’ll be too upset with me.
here are a few items i found:
^^^ edme & esyllte blouse
value village, priced at $7.99 ^^^
^^^ free people skirt
buffalo exchange, priced at $9 (on sale) ^^^
^^^ free people tank
oh bella consignment, priced at $12 ^^^
^^^ splendid top
value village, priced at $8.99 ^^^
when my bank account recovers,
from purchasing the aforementioned clothing pieces, groceries,
copious items for my classroom,
and stocking up on everything i did not need at the recent gap sale,
i might have to go back.
thrifting is truly an adventure.
it requires both time and patience,
but if you are willing and able to look through numerous racks of clothing,
i am sure you will come home with something
(or maybe many somethings).
i am hoping to share photos
of me actually wearing these items.
waking up at 5:30 AM
and arriving home at 5 PM or later
is not great for my hair, skin and outfits.
i come home looking comparable to shrek.
