I went shopping on 5/19 with my friend Kate at a local Arc Thrift Sore. Not only did we go on Saturday, when 4/6 tag colors are on sale, but a family member works there so we got 30% off the items whose tag colors were not on sale that day. Below are most of the itms I purchased and there exact sale price or an “-ish” price. The “-ish”s are because I keep puling tags of items that don’t need to be tailored and to do need to be washed when I get home because I get super excited to wear my new stuff – I am working on this.
I want to point out an interesting aspect: accessories. For one, as I’m pursuing shoes, Kate mentions she never spends time in accessories here. I told her she’s missing out on a trove, and I was right. Usually I find a good belt or scarf or something, this trip I found a brand new pair of tights, four pairs of shoes, three belts for me and one belt that Kate fell in absolute love with, a purse I had to have, and and two ties for my boyfriend. She found a pair of boots and said she’s definitely going to spend more time in accessories from now on.
I have never had good luck in shoes at thrift stores – they are always so worn and finding the right size an be difficult. This time I got super lucky with this first pair pictured being in such great condition that they held half the pair at the front locked up so no one steals them!
