Good morning my fabulous, fashionable, fellow thriftanistas. As promised today I will reveal my fabulous finds from my weekend thrifting treasure hunt. The sales were phenomenal and I got some deals you just won’t believe. Spoiler alert……… I got a new pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes for 45 cent. Close your mouth, yes I said 45 cent. I also got a pair of new Joan and David shoes for 45 cent. I know, I know you are wondering how I did it. Let me tell you the story. One of the resale stores I shop at is Village Discount Outlet. If you have never been to the Village let me just tell you they have some AMAZING deals. However you need to be a true thrifter to shop there. You don’t have to dig through the stuff but you truly have to take your time and look. Okay back to the 45 cent shoes. One of the great things about the Village is that they offer special tag items. What this means is that at any given time you may find an item that has a 90 cent special tag. Occasionally you may even find a 10 cent special tag. Stop looking at the computer like that, yes I am serious. Any-who there doesn’t seem to be any special rhyme or reason as to what gets priced at 90 cent but I love it. Back to this weekend, while perusing the shoes aisles two 90 cent tags jumped out at me. When I picked the items up I discovered they were a pair of Joan and David shoes and a pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes. Did I also mention that the store was having a 50% off sale??? Yes be amazed my shoes went from 90 cent to 45 cent (I actually bought the shoes for my mommy). I was on a thrift high. In addition I found a Brooks Brothers shirt and a Ralph Lauren shirt for 45 cent and that was just the beginning of my day. The one thing about the 90 cent items is that the store takes the ticket off at purchase and keeps them. They have to keep track of how many 90 cent items they sale. So in the pictures you will see that my 90 cent items don’t have a ticket. However I was lucky in the fact that the sales girl missed taking one of my 90 cents tags off. There is a sample tag in the picture for you all to see. I just want to make sure when you shop at the Village you know what to look for :). Check out my other wonderful weekend finds below.
Until next time smooches,
