A couple of thrift hauls combined

This post is full of great finds from a few different trips.   I went to a church carnival last weekend and they had a rummage sale there.  I picked up these summery Candies slingbacks for........ 70 cents!!  I had an armful of items and the cashier looked at my pile of stuff and said, "How bout 10.00?"  Wow!!  So with the amount of items I had it came out to 70 cents a piece!  This are a little too small for me but will fit my twin sister so I am giving them to her!  They don't even look worn : )

I went to the Salvation Army too and picked up this adorable bag by Elliot Lucca, all leather for 7.99

          This really nice pair of Kenneth Cole mules for 8.99, leather uppers.

A gorgeous pair of Cole Haan City mules, new without tags,  crafted in Italy out of beautiful, soft leather.  Leather upper, leather sock and leather sole!  9.99! A great deal for brand new Cole Haan.

A pair of cute and casual Sandals by Salvatorre Ferragamo for 8.99

Franco Sarto, also brand new for 8.99.  These are so pretty in the silvery gray suede and snake toe and heels.

Back to the church rummage sale I found this awesome bear carved out of ironwood.  I love him, he is a true treasure.
My mister was with me at the rummage sale and I found him this Wilson's Leather briefcase in awesome condition and very clean inside.   There are no holes or tears, just needs a little touch up in a few spots with some leather dye which he already has, it's actually beautiful as is too, all zippers working too, a great find.  He had a couple of other thing including a wool pea coat and he wound up paying 1.00 for each of his items.

At the same rummage sale I spotted this cute Juicy Couture tshirt for my baby (great) niece, sweet!
           I didn't even know Juicy made baby clothes!  70 cents!

                       A pair of Batman pajamas for my (great) nephew  Max.   70 cents.

And a cute DKNY hoodie for Max too, 70 cents!

And Ed Hardy for Christian Audiger for  a little bit older great niece, I love this T!  The back has a big rose on it like the one shown here.   70 cents.  Like new.

                                  Isn't it pretty!!  I liked it for myself but it was a too little : l
A pretty top with beadwork on the shoulders for another niece in New Mexico who is pregnant, from Motherhood maternity, 1.00 from the Lutheran High Thrift Store.  Probably my favorite thrift store : )

And a plum colored maternity dress from the same store for 1.00 !!  This is Juicy Couture maternity, there again, I didn't know they made maternity!

And a maxi dress Maternity for 1.00!  This is Christian Seriano of Project Runway fame for Moody Mama.

And a   few clothing items for me~ I found this super cute long sleeved T with my zodiac sign on it, Scorpio, by Gian Franco Ferre, brand new with the tag on it.   This was from the Lutheran store too but in their "step up" section which was on sale for 1/2 off that day so I got this one for 3.00!!

                                     I picked up this bathing suit top for .50 cents for me too.

Mossimo for Target for 70 cents at the rummage sale.   Pretty coral with ruffles all down the front and at the cuffs.  Perfect with jeans in the cooler evenings.

Last but not least, a beautiful white sheer blouse by Rayura Paris.  It has such pretty accents with satin trim and satin covered buttons.  So dainty  and pretty.   Now I need a pretty white camisole.

I hope you enjoyed what I've been finding lately.  If you're new to thrifting be patient, the good stuff really is out there, lots of it and you get better at it the more you go and they are easier to spot.  Not everyone has the patience for thrifting but it really does pay off and it's so much fun, I love finding stuff for me but even more for family they are always so amazed at what I find and at mere dollars I can afford to shower them with gifts : ))
