The Thrifting Gods Are Real: Part 1

Good morning, my fellow thriftanistas I hope you had a great weekend and a fabulous Monday. I spent a wonderful weekend with my amazing family annnnnnddddddd the “Thrifting Gods” smiled upon me. If you are saying to yourself who are these “Thrifting Gods” she is always referring to let me tell you. This past Wednesday my big brother’s car had a serious meltdown. This was unfortunate for several reasons. The first reason being that this obviously left him without a car. The second very important reason was that he had court on Thursday morning. Let me add he is not on trial for anything. He is an attorney so he had to go to court for a client. Any-who me being the WONDERFUL little sister that I am I told my brother that I would be his chauffeur for the day. This put a serious hitch in my normal Thursday morning routine. On Thursday’s my local Unique Thrift Stores have their early bird sale. What kind of thriftanista would I be if I didn’t at least poke my head in on a sale? However for my very AWESOME older brother I would just have to miss it. So on Thursday morning I picked him up, dropped my kids of at school and we headed off to court. While we were on the expressway I tried to decide what I would do to kill time while he was in court. The court-house was way out and I knew nothing about the area. We finally get off the expressway and as I turn the corner I see a strip mall. Of course the first thing I think is, it’s not thrifting but I guess it doesn’t hurt to look. I check out the Marque to see what stores they have and low and behold the sign said that they had a Unique Thrift Store. I know you are like shut-up and stop playing. Oh but I am sooooo serious. I looked at my brother and just started laughing. The “Thrifting Gods” were looking out for me. They put a Unique Thrift store 3 minutes from the court-house. Okay I know they didn’t create a Unique Thrift Store that morning and put it there for me. However the fact that it was so close to the court-house was a thrift blessing. I never knew there was a Unique out there. Actually it was a double blessing. I found a new store and was able to shop the early bird sale. I told you all the” Thrifting Gods” are REAL. Check out the pictures below to see my fabulous finds. I spent $9.00 and some change. Oh and did I mention that one of the items I found was a Diane Von Furstenburg top? I love being a thrifty fashionista! I would love to hear about your thrift miracles. Please leave your story in the comments section or email me at thethriftyfashionista@gmail.com.

    We moved to Sicily from San Diego Ca, in March the only resale boutique I’ve found doesn’t sale clothes. I did pick up two antique bowls in which I posted in my blog. I’m still looking for my Italian designers but will have to travel to the main land for that. I hear Rome has many resale boutiques. You may be seeing more antique decor for when I start traveling to the Antiques flea market on Sundays. Although they do have clothes, we will see what I come up with tomorrow? I miss my Salvations!! They had awesome deals every day of the week!! I love my Anne Taylor’s dresses!!
