1/2 off all clothes and shoes!

Today was 1/2 sale day at my Salvation Army. Clothes, shoes and 30% of bric-a-brac. First let me say, this S.A. Has never had the Red tag for higher end clothing with the higher end price. Today it did! A new thing I guess. But there were so many items with the red tags and crazy prices! It's going to be harder to find that treasure for a great price as someone is going through and pricing high. I once got a beautiful Gap coat at this same location for 1.00 on a sale day. Today I saw a gap cost used priced at 25.99!! Not too bad with the 1/2 off but thrifters know what I mean. Well I took a good look anyway and came away with a few things anyway.

This chocolate brown Michael for MK velour track suit for 39.99 1/2 off, 19.99 is not a bad price for both pieces and doesn't look like its been worn.

Nice!!!  We have a few more chilly days left and more rain I'm sure.  

Then I found a really cute pair of shortie pajamas for those warmer nights and they still had the original tags on them.   They retail for about 35.00 on QVC and at Nordstroms.  1/2 price and I got them for 3.00dollars.  I love pajamas and night gowns.  I am always on the look out for them.    

The last item I found was a pair of satiny pajama pants to go with a pajama top of the same fabric in black.  I knew I'd eventually find a pair of pants to go with it.  These are great in a grey with black leopard spots for 2.50.    I think I did pretty well today.

Feeling Thrifty on Thursday!

I found some really great things today!!  The prize was this  beautiful pair of gold and rhinestone sandals by Franco Sarto with lots of bling for 5.00! Unfortunately they are a size too small for me but fortunately for my sis they are just her size so I got them for her. She needs some cheering up, she just lost her best buddy Monty, her precious English Bulldog. He died last week and she is pretty sad. He was a sweetheart.  

I actually found these exact sandals on EBAY for 25.00 plus shipping, used, so this was a great deal and mine were new.  My sis love them and they fit her perfectly.  She is picking up her boy's ashes today and a memorial plaque and then she and her husband are going to go have lunch at the dog beach that they took their buddy to so often : )
