12-4-18 Thrift Finds- Giant Foam ABC Mat and Stuff to Sell

I have had a lot of luck at the thrift shop this past week. I found this amazing alphabet foam mat for my nephew’s room, it’s the size of an area rug. His mom has one in the living room that looks more like a rug but she likes that it’s easier to clean than a rug and still pads the knees of little ones. It was $20 but they retail for over $100 new and it was in great condition.

 

I bought the above Polo sweater, J Crew jean jacket, Free People Top and Michael Kors blue dress to sell. I think I will keep the exercise jacket. All $2 or less.

One of the finds of the day were the above Melissa & Doug wood clock toys ($2 each) in amazing condition. I will give them to my nephews for Christmas.

I was please with the above clothes I found for me.

All of the items in the above picture are to sell. Starting with the stripped French Connection dress, Lulus Romper, FUBU snakeskin pants, Tobasco and alligator polo (so strange!) and Armani Exchange skirt. The pants are $2.50 and everything else was $2 each or less.

The 4 items in this picture were from a quick trip to Goodwill. The Darth Vader mug may end up as a Christmas gift (or we might keep it!). Goodwill is so expensive compared to our regular thrift shop.

Everything else on this page was generally $2 each or less, unless I have noted otherwise. I definitely have some online listing to do soon. I will wait until winter break after next week.

11-16-18 Rummage Sale Finds – Lilly Pulitzer

I had way too much fun at a local Church rummage sale this weekend. I bought the above 4 Lilly Pulitzer items and the below Johnny Was tunic for around $3 each. These will all be listed on Poshmark soon.

I also bought an assortment of dog stuff including the below outfits, doggie bags, god water bottle, harness and leash all for $3.

We had a lot of fun trying these dog items on the pets.

 

I also purchased the below Black House White Market and Cabi shirt for $3.50 and $2. These will likely also go on Poshmark but if not I could wear them to work.

 

I also couldn’t resist getting these two handmade snow people. I am replacing my glass Christmas decorations with items that the cat’s can’t break even if they throw them on the floor.

9-18-18 Thrift Finds- Disney Lost and Found Items and More

My local thrift shop gets Disney lost and found items every few months. I never know exactly when they will be getting the stuff in (they don’t know either) so when I walked in last Thursday and the store was full of Disney stuff I had fun doing some early Christmas shopping for my family. At least one item has been left out of the pictures so that someone won’t glimpse their Christmas gift early! Of the items above, the most expensive were the R2D2 Mickey Mouse ears for $4 each.

My father has an electric litter box and accessories are expensive but I found some for him for a few dollars at the thrift shop. I also purchased some citronella candles for our hurricane supplies and some other random items.

I was able to buy some little things for the nephews, a Star Trek Enterprise ship for my office at the college, a couple of vintage Nestle coffee mugs and some really pretty reusable napkins.

I found the above baby Buddha, hand towels, Pedi Paws, fans, loafer, and bag of sand toys for $2 or less each. The fans are for Hurricane season, the V.S. blanket is either for a Christmas gift or to sell, and the bag of pool toys and snorkel are for the nephews and our next beach trip.

I also got lucky with some clothes and a blow up cruise ship and a light cover. I especially like the chameleon dress for teaching. The Victoria Secret bra is to sell on Poshmark because they sell well.

7-31-18 Thrift Finds- Jeans and Legos

I also got this giant bag of Legos which had a lot of Star Wars guys in it. It’s already listed on eBay here.

EDIT: These Legos sold on eBay for $33 including shipping. I could have gotten more if I broke up the set but I didn’t have time.

I had really great luck this trip with Lucky brand jeans and True Religion jeans for $2.50 each! Some were our size and some are to sell.

I also got a lunch box, a rolling bag for $4, and some small stuff that will be Christmas gifts including a Lego H&M super hero hat for my nephew. I go through so many professor rolling bags because most are made so that you can’t replace the wheels and the wheels wear out long before the rest of the bag. This bag, you can replace the wheels but the material is already fraying! Someday I will find a bag that lasts longer!

When I am thrifting I always keep my eyes open for like new rugs and towels and this trip I got lucky. I got two matching towels and rugs that didn’t seem like they had ever been used. The towels are super thick and a nice brand and the rugs are memory foam and we have already been using the rugs in the kitchen. They are nicely padded for our feet over our tile floor. Unfortunately, this dark color shows lots of dust and pet hair.

The candle holders match our living room but I haven’t decided where to put them yet. Our house has a lot of really nice accessories that were all dirt cheap from the thrift shop. I love the boho dress in the middle and the shoes were $1 a pair for Vans and Toms and are already listed on Poshmark.

I also purchased a pair of gap jeans and black Express for $2.50 each, one pair for me and one for B. I got a new in package apron from Ikea. I have been wanting an apron and it came with a funny pillsbury dough boy type hat. I also got a Nintendo handheld thing for $2.50. Also a stack of hats for summer. Also a book for my nephew and a set of 6 matching curtains for my mother who needed a set for her front window. The beware of dog sign is a joke. Oh and I also got a new in package set of stainless steel straws.

7-27-18 Thrift Finds- Clothes and Bookshelves

Some smaller finds this week. I found a really nice rug ( don’t mind the blurry picture) and some cute clothes. All less than $2 each

Shoes were $1 each and I also got some small Christmas stuff.

I bought the above hoodie and overalls to sell but when I got home I realized that neither had size tags. My brother got a nice hoodie and I’m still trying to figure out what to do with the overalls.

The books on the left were free and I will give them to my nephew for Christmas. I bought butterfly pics for the guest bedroom, brand new socks for B, and a wooden cover journal for my aunt.

All small stuff $2 or less. A battery operated lamp for hurricane season. A ladle and new shot glasses because we needed them for the kitchen AND a laser toy for the cats and puppy. Unfortunately, the laser moves too fast for them to chase it but I might try attaching a toy to the top LOL

This pic is horrible but these two matching, solid wood bookshelves were a steal. They originally wanted $55 each for them but it was half off day and I had a 10% off coupon. I even paid $35 to have them delivered and it was still a great deal! Now to unpack our books that haven’t been unpacked since we moved a year ago!

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).

EDIT: The blue boots sold on Poshmark for $35 plus shipping.

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.

3-26-18 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.
