Baby seester and I spent the day thrifting, along with the three little girls, and we didn't have high hopes! Most times, I find southern California thrift stores, at least the ones I live by, aren't that great. I find an occasional thing here and there, but it ain't nothing like the loot Rachel finds often! And vintage dresses for me and the girls are so, so, so hard to come by! Even Ben gives up on thrifting as he would rather go straight to a vintage shop and pay a bit more because stuff for him at the thrift stores are really few and far between. They really are picked through so much! We started having bad luck at thrift stores right around the time Napoleon Dynamite came out. That's just our experience though...
I had a couple stores on my list that I wanted to check out. The first one was "eh..." I got a couple shawls, but I think the score of that place were some cowboy boots for True (and Brave). They share everything (and fight over everything too!). Then, we moved on and we moved up in my opinion as the second place was great! The first thing I found was a vintage coat, then right after that we were just "oohhing" and "ahhing" about everything I pulled out. It was hard to narrow things down when it came down to it. There were a couple things I had to say no to and there were some things that were cute, but weren't exactly the right fit, but I just wanted to buy cause it was so good, but didn't cause well, must still be smart. Right? In the end, I came out with some pretty vintage sweaters for me and the girls, a vintage coat, shawls, and some shoes (too bad not my size!). 'Twas a happy day!
We had a good time searching for treasures and boy were they treasures indeed! We are already planning another trip for next week! Can't wait!!!
I am so off on my days this week, I feel like the weekend shouldn't be here yet, but I am glad it is! Tomorrow we are off on a late birthday adventure for Ben! Its delay is due to Brave's pneumonia that happened his birthday weekend, so we are doing it tomorrow. We hope he likes it!!!
Will be back to share all about it soon!!! Doing anything fun this weekend?
