Happy New Year!!

I did a little thrifting during the Christmas season that I haven't had a chance to post, I picked up this beautiful handbag by Michael Kors.   It was in perfect condition, soft, supple leather with no scratches and on the inside the interior is spotless like it would be directly from the store. Amazing find !  It was at the Goodwill and was 14.99.   Most of the time the Goodwill seems overpriced, much more so than the Salvation Army but I still stop in every so often for a look around and I was so glad I did this day!

                              It matchs perfectly with my recently purchased Pendleton wallet.  Lucky!

This is Middle Son, he is out thrifting with me and being silly, he put on this grass skirt and danced around amusing himself and everyone else : )

I found these beautiful Cole Haan Nike Air patent leather pumps that are new too.   They were priced at 8.00 but all the shoes where half off at the Lutheran High Thrift so I got these for 4.00!    Cole Haan pumps can retail from around 120.00 to 245.00 dollars for a pair of pumps! 

Although I haven't had a chance to thrift since the holidays I did drive by one of my favorite Salvation Army stores and the parking lot was very crowded with people dropping off all kinds of goodies!  It was piled up high outside.   I can't wait to have a chance to get out there and shop!   I have a few bags to drop of myself, mostly clothes and toys my 13 year old has outgrown.   


  1. Your recent finds are AMAZING!!! I have made the promise to myself to get out to more thrift stores again this year. I really miss that. That handbag is gorgeous...what a steal! I wish my thrift stores had things this good.

  2. Oh that handbag! Score! I just love that your son was amusing people with his hula. Did you buy him the skirt? :-)
    As usual, great finds!

  3. I agree with others, great handbag, and the shoes were an amazing find, too! Loved the photo of the hula dance, wish I'd been there to see it.
