Recent Thrift Finds

Amazing Kenzie clogs. This brand retails $60-80.

Way cute purse.

Way cute #2.

Maternity jeans. They fit today. Maybe if I don't wash them they'll fit tomorrow. Apparently my husband doesn't understand "don't get my head in the picture".

Cute maternity skirt. Not so cute facial expression. Too lazy to crop.

Yes, my jacket does rock. Yes, it was also thrift last spring.

I bought this exact skirt brand new in a size larger at full price--$30--because I was in desperate need of a nice maternity jean skirt. However, it is still too big. I found this one today in a smaller size for $3.95. Another reason to vow never to buy new again.

Side view. And that would be Avrie with her new book. Saying "I wanna read it".

Evan found this. Brand new and never opened. It sells at Circuit City for $99.99. We paid $6.99

Last week after our date we went to Target and walked around without the kids (sooooo awesome). We saw the cutest croquet set in the kids outdoor section. I'm pretty sure it was plastic...and the hoops were animals. Grandma found a wooden animal set today for the kids.

The long one is from Motherhood Maternity and the shorter one is American Star...I have no idea where that is sold. Probably a department store...Kohls or something like that.

awesome finds. i especially love the first purse and the digital photo frame! careful with those cute shoes - they might hurt your back!

Shannon said...

amazingly the shoes are pretty flat....they are mostly platform. but they also ripped on me yesterday so i need to take them to a shoe repair shop and get them fixed...so i won't be wearing them for a bit. i've been wearing my clarks around the house and love it...not only does it make my back feel better but it makes me get more done! just got back from an awesome saturday morning walk around the neighborhood...now heading out to rake. i love spring.

Wow, awesome, awesome finds!!! Does your husband pick on you for going to Goodwill (or whatever store you go to) too? He doesn't knock it, because he knows I'm saving a bundle, but he thinks he's funny by picking on me for it. Way cute belly, by the way, too!!

melissa--nope! it was actually evan's family that introduced me to thrift shopping. prior to that i don't think i had ever set foot in a thrift store! now i buy almost all of our non-food items there. minus the obvious toilet paper, etc.

I have that long skirt....somewhere! I can't figure out what I did with it, and it probably wouldn't fit yet, but I paid enough for it that if I could get 2 pregnancies out of it,that would be nice. I bought 2 jean skirts at Motherhood $30 & $35, and then found one for $6.99 a few day later at Goodwill....our thrift shops are way pricier down here though. You find alot of great stuff. I'm glad your back is feeling better
