Treasure's Thursday!!!

I headed out this week to Goodwill for my usual treasure hunt. Usually while treasure hunting I stumble upon all sorts of goodies for the home. This time wasn't like the rest. The shelves were dull and lifeless. Nothing calling out to come home with me except this one lonely tea cup that I thought my Mom would appreciate.

I grabbed the cup and headed for the checkout. I was feeling like it wasn't a very successful trip, when I happened to turn and see the children's racks. They were overflowing with all sorts of clothes. I've never purchased children's clothes at Goodwill. I just never had the patience to search through everything. However today was different. With my new budget "constraints" and my recent trip to the vintage clothing show, I decided to give it a try. To say I hit the Jackpot would be an understatement! Not only did I find name brand, I found name brand in my daughters sizes!!




First there was Juicy!?!!

Followed by Billabong


Then Gymboree



Limited Too



and last but not least, Roxy



I couldn't believe the brand names or the shape they were in!?! Best of all was the price! I purchased all of these brands plus a couple others for a total of 7 articles of clothing (and don't forget the tea cup) for $22.00. $22.00!?!?!



These are all brands/stores that I've purchased from in the past. If she needed clothes, these are the brands we bought. Never mind the price tag. Of course after 2009 I'm not able to shop the way I used to and have to make sure my dollar stretches as far as it can. Well, with an original total of approximately $230.00 give or take a few, I'm more than happy with the over $200.00 savings on this treasure hunt!


Have you been to your local Goodwill lately?

Great finds. That juicy jumper is so cute.
At Goodwill, the same type of thing happened to me... I turned around and they "hey, I've never looked through their clothes" (for me though, no kids). And what do yanno... I found a pair of Citizen of Humanity capri jeans that fit me like a glove for $6.50!
