thrift tip: don't doubt the thrift stores in your area
Ok, so I can't tell you how many times I've heard and gotten blog comments like "the thrift stores in my area just don't have good stuff like yours!" That is THE biggest lie! (no offense) If you're one of those saying that, you're not trying hard enough! Let me tell you, when I moved a few months ago, I thought the same thing after 2 visits to my local Goodwill. I started telling people our Goodwill sucks... just because I didn't find much in those 2 measly visits! I didn't give up though. I went back to it a couple more times, and then I came home with the shirt. That's when I knew there was hope! This past time I went to our local Goodwill, I found so many goodies I had to put some back! (Yes, I am THAT cheap that I even watch what I spend at the Goodwill haha)
I don't remember the brand of this dress, but I loved it. I didn't get it, but I'm looking back at this picture and regretting it!
I thought this would make a cute spring dress, but since I found other goodies that I wouldn't have to wait to wear, I passed on it.
Old Navy Cardigan: $3.99
This cardi was cute, but I just wasn't feeling it.
Jessica Simpson Dress: $5.99
Now, I hope you don't think I passed this dress up! This baby definitely came home with me :)
Vintage Pink Sweater: $3.99
Old Navy Shirt: $3.99
This came home with me!
If you follow me on instagram, you already know this came home with me!
So what I'm saying here is stop doubting your thrift stores! Just because you didn't find anything the first time, keep trying, I believe there are hidden gems to be found in every thrift store!
