Hello, everyone! With 2017 well underway, it is time to play catch-up (yet again, sigh). This is the last—and very belated—Haulin’ Home the Thrift Store of 2016, and I don’t know about you, but I’d say I had a pretty good year of thrifting, over all.
In December I didn’t do a whole lot of thrifting, but I did do a little secondhand shopping through Poshmark, which is kind of the same thing but from the comfort of your own home. (Are you guys tired of hearing about Poshmark yet?)
Before Christmas, I popped by our Salvation Army and snagged a retro-looking wicker purse with red accents (about 1.50 at the Salvation Army 50% off sale). I’m really exited about this purse because it’s perfect for summer! Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it for you guys. Sorry 😦 I will try to add one later.
I took my sister thrifting at Goodwill while we were home for Christmas and gave her most of my thrifting good luck. She doesn’t really understand shopping thrift stores, but she had major luck when I took her and gave her a few pointers. Safe to say, I think I converted her!
I didn’t score nearly as much as her, but this is what I did find:
- vintage floral maxi dress—It had a hole in one of the side seams, but nothing I couldn’t fix myself! -pair of black Ferragamo-style flats
- men’s flannel for myself (the red and white one on the left)
- two flannel shirts for my husband—one is L.L. Bean, perfect condition, and I got it for $5.99!
Living in the Pacific Northwest is a dream come true when looking for flannel, I tell you what. I’ve had a lot of luck, as you can see.
Keep your eyes out for the belated January thrift haul soon!
