I just had to share my latest bargains with you all!
As I've stated before, I don't go into thrift stores a lot anymore, as I've started getting rid of stuff and simplifying. I don't want to be dragging more stuff into the house. However, there are certain things I need - clothes being one of them. And particular household items. I haven't had much luck with clothes at Goodwill this year, but I finally managed to snag two beautiful brand-new tops that actually fit me at fantastic prices. I am so hard to fit! I am average-sized, but small through the shoulders with a large bust. If a top fits in the shoulders, it's usually too tight in the bust. Or, the opposite is true: fits in the bust; too big in the shoulders.
Both these tops had the original store tags on them...snagged a Banana Republic blouse for only $5.99! The Price part of the tag was torn off, but from looking at their web site, their blouses run anywhere from $80 - $98. (Crazy.)
And found a Talbots blouse with a $60 price tag for only $6.99. :-) Both of these blouses are much prettier in person...hard to photograph clothes.
I'm trying not to bring anymore tchotchkes into the house, but I couldn't resist this Chicago bowl. It's made by a company called The Dish, LTD. They aren't listing this bowl anymore, but their large platter sells for $42, so I'm assuming this bowl was somewhere around that price. I got it for $3.99.
More Chicago scenes on the bowl...
Lastly, I found this brand-new chair from Target for only $35! Retail price (as you can see from the link) - $180!! Total score on this find. It's pictured here in my bedroom, but turns out, there wasn't enough room. It's now in Tim's room/the guest room. Please ignore the fact that there's still no curtains on my bedroom window. (There are blinds, but they're pulled up.) Still looking for "just the right ones". I did find curtains I liked at Target (speaking of), but they were too short. I then looked online when I got home and couldn't find them! Must search again.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
