My beloved Value Village closed permanently last month—I’m a tad heartbroken, but I’ll probably also save more money, so, is it really that horrible?
But before closing the store forever, it went out with a 50% off, everything-must-go sale, which I giddily took advantage of. Most everything was picked over already, but I did snag a few gems!
Namely, this Christmas sweater! Originally $12.99 but I got it for half off—and the faux fur collar is detachable! Talk about a hell of a deal!
I also got Jordan the giant blue sweater, and two other sweaters for myself. Plus a massive book haul. I’m going to miss the book selection this store always had. *soft crying*
After we got back from Thanksgiving with his family, I decided it was officially time to set up our first Christmas tree together! But my little pink three-foot tree was not going to cut it this year…. so we went to Goodwill, obviously.
We scored a practically brand new six-foot tree for $20, a NWT tree skirt (originally $24 at Marshalls, but we got it for $9) and a nice assortment of ball ornaments.
And you know what they say about one door closing and another door opening? Value Village’s permanent closure opened the door for This-N-That, a new thrift store that opened days after VV closed—and it’s even closer to our apartment than VV was! I stopped by to scope it out and left with this zazzy pair of cropped H&M pants for 3.99.
