5-31-18 Rummage Sale Finds- Coats, Coats, Coats!!!

I had way, way too much fun at a local church rummage sale on a Wednesday of all days! It was the first day of the sale and there was so much stuff! The above pictures are of the sale! I didn’t arrive until about an hour before they closed when I saw a sign on the side of the road on my way home so I didn’t want to stop shopping long enough to take better pictures.

Everything I bought fit into these 3 XL reusable bags. They threw in the bags just for free.

The above photo shows some of the small stuff I bought including 2 giant candles, a pottery barn tray, etc. Most items were $1 each.

The above vintage coat is amazing! I love it but I will probably sell it but it definitely needs to be dry cleaned but I think it will be worth it.

The above is a London Fog coat for $2 to resell.

The above is a another amazing coat for $2 to resell. The fur is fake. I love animals.

The above are Anne Klein full length, 100% wool coats for $2 to resell. All of the coats I hope will sell for $40 to $100 each online.

Above are 3 pairs of overalls including one pair of Carhartts that were $2 each and are already listed for sale on Poshmark for about $40 each.

The puppy was excited about his new blanket! How he always knows exactly what I have bought for him is a mystery.

These Bobs and Toms shoes were $2 each. I should have passed on these for resale but oh well. Not every item is a winner.

 

 

Thrift Shopping Heads Up- It’s time to look for Boots!

This is officially the time of year where the weather starts to warm up and that means it is also a great time to buy boots at Thrift Shops. I have bought all of the above pairs for next year in the past month. They were $1 or $2 each and because I have room to store them until next year it will save me a lot of money! Not to mention that I love boots and generally wear through them in one season.

5-4-18 Thrift Finds- Clothes, Clothes, Clothes (Now to Sell!)

I bought a huge bag of clothes for about $30 including everything in the below 6 pictures. The goal is to sell these items on eBay and Postmark.

I bought the above 3 outfits for my nephew.

The below 5 photos are from about 5 different thrift trips. They are a mix of stuff for us and to sell. All clothes cost $1 or $2 or less besides 1 maxi dress that was $3.

Wish me luck with my online sales!

5-10-18 Thrift Finds- Armillary Sphere

I have wanted an armillary sphere for almost 8 years but they are so darn expensive! Today I found the above one at the thrift shop for $5!!!!

The stuff below is from a couple recent thrift trips! All clothes were less than $2.50, most $1 each.

I found a couple of cool books for my one year old nephew, a couple tiny stuffed animals for the puppy, a marble utensil holder for a dollar fifty, and a Yeti style coffee mug for a dollar!

This picture shows everything I bought to sell including a J crew suit jacket for $2, Hollister jeans for $2.50, two little girls Reeboks shirts, and a Nike Dri-FIT pair of shorts.

The Pug leggings are actually H&M brand and I also bought them to sell. The Star Wars shirt I am also going to list for sale but if it doesn’t sell I’m going to use the fabric for my Star Wars quilt. The dress and skirt I bought to wear to work for myself.

I got the little makeup mirror that lights up with the cord for about $2 and then I got the Buddhist sculptures for $2 each.

4-13-18 Thrift Finds- Planet Drinking Glasses and More

I bought the above planet drinking glass set for $7.50. I wanted to keep it but they are selling for a decent amount on eBay and so on eBay they go! I also believe they would quickly get broken at my house.

I bought the MK jeans and Kardashian dress to sell on eBay, they were $2 each.

I also got some cute toys for my nephew for $1 each or less.

More clothes for work and to sell, all $2 or less each.

I bought these adorable little girls clothes to sell for less than $1 each. The Merimekko dress is from a sought after designer.

B needed new shoes and I got these for $1 each.

More clothes for work and to sell, all $2 or less each.

The curtains were for my mother and were $5 for 2 panels.

4-21-18 Finds From 2 Rummage Sales and 3 Neighborhood Yard Sales Including Hand Carved Wooden Chests and a Flatscreen 

I had way, way too much fun going to 2 rummage sales and 3 entire neighborhood garage sales! And all within a few minutes of our house.

I was especially excited with the above carved wooden chest that I paid $30 for! They are about 2 feet high when stacked (I mention this because my family thought they were jewelry boxes from the picture). I have wanted some like this for a long time but wasn’t going to pay hundreds of dollars for them. They are (supposedly) hand carved from Bali, Indonesia.

I was also excited to find this Central Fl History book! It was a quarter.

I got 3 Chive On shirts for .25 cents each to sell online.

I also got this box full of clothes to sell online that were .25 cents each or .50 cents each. I probably spent about $8 total and we will see what profit I can turn that into.

We got this small HD flatscreen TV with a remote for $5. I wanted a little TV for the office (when I’m listing all the clothes!) so this is perfect.

I love the above whitewashed, wooden, carving wall hanging. I haven’t figured out where to put it yet but we have a lot of empty walls.

I got those two plastic storage contains for $1.50 for both.

The mirror and bag of marvel toys were $1 each and came with about 30 free hangers that I need to hang the clothes I’m selling.

I got quite a few nicknacks too including a miniature, ceramic bathroom set, an hour glass necklace, an anthropologie, elephant, ring holder dish. My mom told me to look for antique, bronze baby shoes and I got the above one for .50 cents and there is an actual baby shoe inside. I think it’s super creepy.

I picked up some other small stuff too like the bag.

I was also very excited about this $5 dresser. It’s ugly and a little dirty but I really think that it will be perfect when I’m done with it and it’s summer so it’s a good time for a project.

4-03-18 Thrift Finds- Dress Pants and Clothes

The puppy always wants to see what I have bought!

I found some clothes and some more shoes! The boots are great for wearing while I am teaching in the winter. I have worn through several pairs already and was looking at buying another pair for $50 so finding these for $1 is amazing! They are Croft & Barrow brand and have memory foam padding!

They gave me my stuff in this cool bag for free! I will save it for a future gift.

I got a battery operated fan new in the box for hurricane season. I paid $1 but these things sell for over $30 during the season. I got a book of herbs, a gift bag with dachshunds on it, a glass fish, and a bunch of doggy clothes patterns.

I also got a few things to sell. The cute little girls dress, Ralph Lauren Polo boots and a Chico’s cape (it didn’t photograph well).

I am pleased with the top dresses and skirt but the PJs ended up not working. I am going to give them to my mother.

I am especially excited for the above two pairs of Kenneth Cole dress pants. They fit me perfectly and don’t need to be hemmed. The pants with buttons are from Express and also fit great but need to be hemmed. I plan on going through all of my dress pants this summer and only keeping the best ones. I also have several pairs sitting, waiting for me to hem them.

3-7-18 Thrift Finds- Stuff to Sell on eBay, Clothes and an Octopus

I purchased the above clothes to sell on eBay and they are all great brands including Victoria’s Secret, Lucky, Hollister Shorts or Jeans Only, Harley Davidson, and White House Black Market ($1 to 1.75 each).

I got these 9 West shoes for $9.99. I might have over paid but they are my favorite shoe brand, super comfortable and I think I will wear them while teaching until they fall apart.

I am so excited about this Octopus ($2.99). It’s SOLID metal and very heavy. I plan to paint it so that it will match our pool area. The silver is currently not in great shape.

I got B a shirt ($1.99) and jacket ($5.99)and I got myself the above jacket from buckle with the tags on by way of the thrift shop for $7.99.

Here are some more items I plan to sell on eBay. The brands are Motherhood Maternity, Chicos, and LIMI. The last I had never heard of but it seems to sell for several hundred dollars per coat on eBay.

The above clothes were for me and B and cost between ($1 to 1.75 each). All of the clothes cost in this price range unless I mentioned it specifically.

This Michael Kors shirt for less than $2 will be going on eBay with a much better picture.

I was especially excited to find the duvet cover on the left with pillow cases because it matches a set I already LOVE from IKEA. I tried to buy a larger size also in this fabric but they no longer sell it. I also got the above folding stool for FREE. And the expensive pocket square was in the pocket of one of the coats.

Thrift Finds- Outside Rocking Loveseat for $7.50

Since we moved into our most recent house with a pool we have been wanting to have more outside seating. But of course I was determined to find it at a thrift shop. I got the above chairs that go from seating to laying and also fold up small for $9 each at the thrift shop.

When I saw the below cute little Outside Rocking Loveseat for $7.50 I had to get it and the best part is it fit in my small SUV. The cushions were it good shape too. I am planning to recover them this summer, when I’m off of work, to match the teal chairs and pillows I also got at the thrift shop for $1 each.

3-26-18 Thrift Finds- Paint Bucket Spill (LumiSource WOOPSY) Lamps for $2.50 each and more

I was so excited when I found these two matching paint bucket spilled lamps.

Turns out they are these:

LumiSource WOOPSY Lamps in Yellow

As I was headed to the thrift shop, my mom asked me to get her some curtains and a shower curtain. Apparently the put it out into the universe philosophy works because I found a set of 2 green designer curtains for $2 and a set of 4 pink curtains for $4. I also got her a designed shower curtain for $1.50 and one for us too.

I bought two long grey sweaters to wear while teaching for $1.75. I got the boots for $1. And I got the set of 9 bowls that we needed for $2.50.

I bought this adorable little purse for my sister. It has skulls and looks like disney so it’s perfect for her!

I got more long sweaters, a knee brace and a heating pad. Everything less than $2 each. I have joint problems and hopefully those will help.

I got these shirts and teal bowl. The bowl is plastic and looks like ceramic so it’s perfect for living with cats.

I bought two more pairs of boots for $1 each. I’m stocking up for next winter. I paid $40 one pair of boots last year when I needed a pair so I could buy 39 pairs of boots for next year and would still be saving money.

I got this cute picture in a nice frame for our bathroom for $1.50.

This bear picture will be decor for next Christmas/Winter. I like that the cats can’t break it.
