Earlier this month I went to a rummage sale here in town and I scored me a few items. While I was there, I realized how much I really miss shopping at the rummage sale and how much I miss the people. It was nice to see some familiar faces and talking to them.
During my thrift shopping, I ended up spending under $17 for five grocery bags full of junk. I mean goodies! I was really hoping to find more kids clothes and some vintage dresses, but I didn't. Maybe next time, which probably means next year. Ouch! I am really going to miss it. Here is my Rummage sale haul.
It is actually a spacious building and this is just the other side of it. I wasn't able to take a photo of the entire building.
I got some clothes for me and for the kids, and as usual, nothing for the husband. I also got some bags and four picture frames that I am taking with me back to Wyoming in our other house.
When I first saw this skirt, I immediately thought of refashioning it into my little girl's 4th of July dress. We will see if I can do that since I didn't bring my other sewing machine. All I have is an old one and crossing my fingers and toes it still works. She loves the design on this skirt and when she saw me wearing it, she told me to take it off because she wants to wear it.
I was super excited when I saw this plaid skirt. Yaye! It is a vintage skirt with buttons on the side and one side pocket. It is comfortable to wear and you can bet it will get a lot of wear time this fall and winter. I have been looking for one for a long while now and I finally got one. And the fit is just right.
I know I already have like three long sleeves in this color, but the designs are different and this one has two pockets on the front and a button-down shirt. I couldn't pass it and it is in perfect condition.
I found another Vintage Dooney & Bourke and this time it has the shoulder straps. The last one I had, which is the white one (photo below), didn't have the straps. The awesome thing is, the strap is removable so I can just remove the strap and use it on the white one if I want to use it.
I thrifted the white one last year and it's still in good condition. I am hoping the next time I go rummage sale shopping that I would find another Dooney & Bourke. I want more! How about you, have you thrifted lately? Have a good one!
