high on thrifting


It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to the spring thrifting season. Bitter because it’s over, but sweet because I have once again outdone myself in fantastic deals. Yes, I know I can still shop thrift stores year round, and I do, but it’s not the same as the nutty spring bonanza. I live for crazy lady ‘bowing episodes.

I’ve decided to join up with The Haps’ {High on Thrifting Thursday} to relive my glory days of thrifty finds. By the way, Mandy (author of The Haps) is hilarious and fun; her site is an excellent read to add to your coffee/tea break list. And now to answer your other question: yes. Those ARE Batman goggles in the upper left corner. Let’s delve deeper into these scores, shall we?

All these bargains below, and more, came from an end-of-sale price-per-bag bonanza (my favorite kind), in which I scored two brown paper grocery bags full of whatever I wanted for $30. Wowza.

Clay Christmas cookie cutters. I love that the bear is holding a bear. Adorbs.

THE Batman goggles. And a little tea tray picked up at the church rummage sale, matching MIL’s china ($2) 

Handmade bib/burp cloth with vintage fabric. Finally a good baby boy gift!

Superhero ladybugs on homemade burp cloth. Inspiration for my soon-to-start free sewing machine class

Pic quality is not awesome here, but you’re looking at a pea coat, Columbia snow bib, Pumpkin costume (baby boy gift), and Hanna Anderson snow suit (another baby boy gift!)

Oh, and I also grabbed some great bargains at Old Navy this week (not pictured), which isn’t technically thrifting but does also bring me that great-score high. Old Navy has really stepped up their game lately–have you noticed? At one point in that shopping trip, the hubster and I turned to each other, both of us with two arm-loads of great finds, and just had to laugh and shrug. Apparently there are times I love shopping. Who knew?!
