Thrifty Thursday

Pin It
I am a thrifty type of gal. I do not like paying full price for anything. I love thrift stores such as Goodwill and the Salvation Army, garage sales, yard sales and rummage sales!

Every week I take a walk through our local Goodwill and Salvation Army .... these are the only two thrift stores we have in town. Unfortunately I have to wait until summer for the garage/yard/rummage sales to start .... hopefully that won't be too far off!

Since I usually find some great deals, I would like to share them with you on Thursdays. I always love seeing what others have found on their thrifting adventures!

My first find was a LL Bean raincoat for myself. I had been looking for one of high quality and this is perfect for those rainy days in summer when I have work to do outside.

The color is perfect and I love the detail on the sleeve. Do you notice the price? The best part of that price is the color of the plastic hanger? It was the half price color for that day! So I paid $3.98 for this jacket and it's like new! Score!

The next item I found were these cute little pillow pockets ... I love the vintage fabric ... it caught my eye right away. I don't know what I will use them for yet but I am sure I have close to a yard of fabric with these two little beauties. Maybe a quilted tablerunner, or a patchwork tote bag?

The possibilities are endless and the price was perfect too ..... .49 cents each .... and then half price ..... so .49 cents for the both of them.

What have you found on your thrifting travels lately? I would love to hear about them.
