Cindy and her friend Kiva had an idea to hold a virtual thrift shopping trip on our blogs. I don't even need an excuse, really, to go thrifting. But signing up for this gig absolutely made it mandatory.
Unfortunately my stinkin' job got in the way of my fun last week. My phone wouldn't stop ringing and the work came pouring in. I even had to work on SATURDAY! The saturday gig was really annoying because it prevented me from driving to D.C. to go to the Big Flea with BFF Beth.
So inbetween work and more work I managed to squeeze in a few side trips to just a few of the prolific number of thirft stores in my area.
I visited one of the CHKD (Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters) in Norfolk, the CHKD in Hampton, Salvation Army in Virginia Beach and a CHKD in Newport News.
I spent $3.45 on this lot. My 10 yo was thrilled with the tupperware jello molds! Now we have jiggly jellos for dinner! The swanky swig was marked down to $0.15 from $0.45 and that was it's 2nd markdown!
Seashells for $1.45 for all. Wooden balls for $0.65 and my favorite find was the vintage satin rayon ribbon for $1.96. It's sooo soft!
Lastly this vintage sheet for $1.96. Groovy.
