Today was a great day at the thrift store! I went to THE. BEST. THRIFT.STORE in portland. The only thing that I don't like about Red White and Blue is that they don't have dressing rooms (try pants on under a skirt!) and that they organize by color of clothes not size. Oh well, you just need to look and look and you find great deals!
I was shopping for pants (which I found three pairs) and ended up with some toys for Ruby, and a dress for me! The pants were an amazing find. One was a pair of prAna pants that still had tags (original price $60) and I got them for $10. Also some black capris (nice enough to treat patients in) and some capri causal pants because my comfy ones from last summer are just too big. I'd post a pix, but one pair of black pants ( or three) aren't exciting.
The dress I happened upon was a Hanna Andersson summer dress that looks brand new. For $8 you just can't go wrong.
Hopefully it will look good on me!
Next up I found some awesome toys for Ruby. A little toy train set for $4. She already likes the truck that came with it
TrainAnd this cool magnet board thing. I know she won't really have interest in it for a while, but I will hang it in the kitchen and we can get used to changing the months and adding magnets.\magnet board What's really funny.... I called my friend Jackie to tell her about my cool finds, and she LAUGHED when I told her about the magnet board. She donated that very one to the same thrift store two weeks ago.
I have had some amazing decluttering success, and have a whole post on it coming tomorrow (I hope!)
I have some thoughts on advertising and what not - we were just in San Francisco a week ago--- that is a town for shoppers! but it's bed time, so I'll save it for later... meaning, who knows when.
