Recently I was sucked into a local thrift store by the bright signs in the window advertising that all clothes were $1. I could not just pass by without taking a peek inside. I ventured inside that store with my toddler twin daughters, my nephew and niece. It was a blistering hot day, and the store was just slightly cooler than outside.
This particular thrift store always catches my eye as I drive pass because of the color themed window displays.
I immediately found several things that I liked and figured I would be able to fit. I purchased 13 items of clothes for myself, 3 for the twins and 4 for my son. I ended up spending around $28, $1 for each article of clothing and very cute United Colors of Benetton bag that was under $10. Among my finds were several Ann Taylor and Calvin Klein pieces which were very nice.
Shopping in the thrift stores are great! You can feed your need to shop, spend a limited amount of money and add to your wardrobe. I suggest you look into thrift and consignment shops in your area. If you live in the Hampton Roads area, there are quite a few that are nice. Some specifically carry children’s clothing and others have a wide range of items that vary from clothing, housewares, furniture to home decor. I do believe in the phrase that someone else’s junk can be another’s treasure.
