Thrifting~Goodwill Haul

Hey friends! I did a little thrifting with a friend (Hi..Tammy!) this past Friday at our local Goodwill. I needed a few pieces to add to my Spring/Summer Core Capsule Wardrobe. I found two of them at Goodwill. Name brand almost in brand new condition Tommy Hilfiger Skirts. I needed a black and a white/cream one. I was blessed this day. These run around $89.99 and I paid $3.75 (US) and I could NOT believe it. I also found a super bright pattern skirt that was Calvin Klein for $3.75. This skirt would easily run $40.00 or more at Dillard's. Below are some ways I wore these core pieces this week.

 

I paired my $3.75 white skirt with a gray dress from Old Navy that was $15.00 and my black Clarks flip flop comfort sandal.


I wore the Calvin Klein colored skirt for church this past Sunday. I had a green top I have owned for years and had it in my "maybe" keep for the Ten Item Wardrobe/Spring Capsule I am putting together. I think I will keep it. This shirt I got for $9.99 at Burkes. These are my dress sandals from Old Navy.  I have two pair of every day sandals that are black and brown. Two pair of dress sandals that are black and brown. Two flats that are silver and black. Two closed toe high heels that are black and gray. This is all I own for the spring/summer season. I do have some tennis shoes and some cheap flip flops for around the yard. I also have two pair of boots and that is it for Fall/Winter shoes.


This was laundry and house cleaning day and I wore the Tommy Hilfiger black skirt from Goodwill with a shirt I got from Stitch Fix. I wore my Comfy Clarks sandals again this day.




I also got my daughter a skirt that is more loose fitting for bike and horse riding. She loved it. It was an Old Navy brand for $3.75. Runs $20 in the store.

I picked up two shirts for my son in college. An Old Navy and Van Hussein each would cost $29.99 but I paid $3.75.

I got couple of Junior level classic readers for the kids at .50 cents and myself a summer read for .25 cents and then I found a book to read aloud to the kids for the summer for .25 cents.




I got some nice plates. Perfect for breakfast and lunch. I only own ten dinner size glass plates and use these for every meal or paper plates. I do not like wasting the money on paper plates and I also don't like washing my dinner plates for small servings for breakfast and lunch everyday.
I got eight plates for $3.00.



Overall, I was happy with my thrift. All of the items were quality brands and needs on my capsule wardbrobe or items we needed for the home and kids.

Have you found in great thrifts or resale items lately? Do you like thrifting?  I don't normally thrift but a few times a year and only when I need something. I am glad I went the other day!

Blessings,
Chrissy

  1. You always look so put together. If I could send you a picture of me right now, it would scare you. Seriously, no one should look as beautiful as you on an everyday basis. I am dressed in black as I have to teach later today and the littles are here so chaos is raining. I love to thrift and get many sewing supplies at thrift stores. But I have to be careful as I need nothing and I will buy just because it is a good deal.

    1. Oh....I have my days. But since I deal with very heavy bouts of depression I try to get up and get dressed . It helps me for some reason.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog today; let's follow each other. You got a lot of great bargains, pretty outfits and the plates. I have so many books waiting to be read that I try to give away more books than I buy. I love reading.

    1. I am so guilty with books. I keep saying I can't buy any until I finish reading some.

  4. You found some great things. I don't thrift often. I went in February to buy skirts for Megan. You can't beat their prices vs retail.

    1. You really can't. I don't go hardly at all thrifting. When I do I always kick myself for when I pay full price at other places before checking a thrift store.

  5. I like to browse through the thrift shops a couple of times a year, but ours (we have St. Vincent de Paul, Goodwill, Salvation Army, and Christian Layman's) never have much of anything in clothes that I'd want. I look for books and household items I can use. I also like to go to yard sales and flea markets. I do pretty well at those.

  6. Great finds! I have found lots of teaware when thrifting. Then always look for used books and usually walk away with a few to read.

  7. I always enjoy finding great items such as what you have found, yours are very pretty. I once worked at a consignment store that was called Saks Consigned Designs, there were a lot of high end designs that were unbelievably cheap! One of the advantages was that we got to see them first, and were given an extra percentage off.
    Thanks for sharing, and thank you for visiting me and for your sweet comment.
    Blessings,

  8. Aw you look adorable in your new clothes. I'm glad you found some skirts. Good skirts are hard to find in the thrifts. I have a few of those swing dresses from Old Navy in my closet too. They're so comfy to wear. I'm glad you found what you needed. Thrifting is fun. You never know what you're going to come home with.
