Yesterday I went to a couple of my favorite thrift stores and found a few things for my 13 year old, my 3 year old nephew and for me. I found a cute little pair of pajamas by Carters for my nephew and a pair of baby CROCS. They are really cute small, I don't think they are too cute when they get really big sizes! Those 2 items cost me a whopping $ 4.00. Thrifting is good for everyone but babies and kids grow so fast it really makes sense. Aren't these just the cutest? And look my nail polish matches : )
Next up for my 13 year old. He just started Junior High. He liked his first day yesterday. We went school shopping for him and picked up a couple pairs of pants and about 6 or 7 new shirts and a new pair of shoes to start off the year. I always thrift for him too after that, the newness wears off after a few washes and you can't tell what was thrifted and what was new after that! Boys clothes can be pricey too, my son like the skateboard/surfwear brands Volcom, Billabong, Hurley, Vans, etc. I can find them pretty regularly at the thrift stores or yard sales. Look at these nice shirts for 1.00 each.
For me I found a pair of sandals for 3.00. These are the brand ECCO. I didn't know too much about them before but just recently I went with my mom to the Walking Company store, her podiatrist recommended better shoes for some problems she has been having with her feet. She purchased a nice pair of Danskos on sale for 85.00. And a pair of TAOS brand shoes for 100.00. The ECCO brand of sandals sells for 110.00 so when I saw these for 3.00 and in my size I grabbed them. The look a lot cuter on and they really are super comfortable and definitely a well made shoe.
Last but definitely not least, I went to an estate sale a few weekends ago and grabbed this as soon as I saw it for 10.00! The lady said she remembered her father carrying it back in the 70's. I don't know if it is authentic Louis Vuitton or not but it is really beautiful and looks like an antique briefcase. I called the Louis Vuitton store in the mall to see if they would authenticate and the saleswoman said they don't do that, I would have to find someone who does that. But she did say for 10.00 dollars even if it isn't, it is still an antique case and pretty cool. I was thinking I could give it to my son to use for college, he likes things like this. We'll see. Anyway that is all for now but I expect to hit an Estate sale Friday before my busy weekend.
