I Love Thrifting!

Lately I have been very busy with school and building our blog site.  I usually thrift two or three times a week but I hadn’t gone in a month or so. Thursday I decided to make a quick visit on my lunch.  I go in looking for the new items from Target and Kohl’s. Most Goodwills get their Target donations on Thursdays. I must have gone too late in the day, I didn’t find much at all.

I did however run across this beauty…A VICTORIA’s SECRET UMBRELLA with the tag on it.

It retails for $68. For an umbrella????

As you can see, I only paid $4

It’s the 2012 Limited Edition Victoria’s Secret umbrella. This could be why it has been donated to the Goodwill. I really don’t care what year my umbrella was made. I just need something to keep me dry. Thank you to all the people that actually care. It helps me save on items I could use but not necessarily looking to purchase right now.

  1. You recently read my blog about Rochelle, so I read yours and picked this entry because I have been thrifting for 40 years!! Goodwill is my favorite and one in particular. I look for vintage ethnic clothes and older Mexican folk art, which I collect. But yesterday I found a Waterford wine goblet for $1.99 plus a handmade in San Antonio, Texas guayabera shirt in white linen by Dos Carolinas for $6.99. I had once bought a new one for a boyfriend about 15 years ago for about $100. I was in retail for 40 years so hate to pay full price for anything. Plus, it is very fun to go thrifting. Good to teach the children too.

    1. It’s always wonderful finding things you know cost a lot for almost nothing. I’ve been thrifting for about 7 years now. I bring my girls along sometimes and they love it too. It’s not about how much you pay for it, it’s about how good it makes you feel.
