I took my sister to Red White and Blue, we had a nice time. She really made out, she purchased two shirts, one for $1.95 and another for 95 cents. I told her she was the last of the big spenders. I only found one thing that I really had to have, this lovely Tommy Hilfiger sweater for $6.95. It's a men's, but truthfully, most men would never wear a pink sweater. I loved it though and it had to come home with me :)
I didn't do much thrift store shopping in August, I was too busy with other things and quite frankly I really don't need much. I did find these two tops though in one of my few visits:
Jones New York, a company I wouldn't normally buy at full retail--but a $74 shirt for just under $4--uh yeah! I loved the plum and white stripes, I think it will look great either by itself or over the plum colored sleeveless mockneck I bought a couple of months ago.
I had to have this mock neck turtleneck when I saw it--I had actually looked at this top right around the new year when it was on clearance at Kohl's! Even on clearance it was $8 and I wasn't in the right frame of mind at that point to buy more winter clothing. But for $3.79 and cold weather approaching I changed my tune.
It has cardinals on it!!!!!!! Anyone who knows me well can understand why I bought it, they would be more surprised if I didn't.
My last purchase to share is something to go with my "project" that I'm going to start working on when I'm finished being a working girl. I found this table at a Salvation Army about an hour from here, but since I broke my tape measure >:( I couldn't be sure it was the right size. Hubby and I went back that evening and luckily it was still there as it was EXACTLY the size I needed.
It is a nice piece, I'm sure it was a rather expensive purchase brand new, but at $7.99 the price was definitely right for what I want it for. Remember those fabric pieces I bought a couple of weeks ago? This is going to be used along with those and some other stuff for my idea. I promise I will share what I'm doing soon! I'm looking forward to getting started now that I have most everything together. Just waiting on something I bought on Ebay to arrive and I should be good to go.
Have a great weekend!
