Ladies, my heat is back on and it only cost $135. Thank you for all of your support. I am good and toasty now. Now I have to find someone to come and checkout the fireplace.

That is beyond cool!

Bought 2 for my GD's for Xmas . Retail for $254 each! My dh complained the whole time I was buying them and loading them.... He now has a smile after he realized I paid less than the tax would have been retail!

They just redecorated their room in hot pink and zebra print. So these headboards were a great find for a 6yr old and 9 yr old girls! They even came sealed in the box marked target.com. So they were easy to google retail price.
$510 savings = priceless for 2 smiles on Xmas

I just read this article about Fiestaware and thought of the thrifting crowd. Not sure if anyone collects it or not, but probably not something you want to eat off of if you find the really good old stuff!

My main errand was to go to Crossroads and be rid of some clothes. What an awesome experience compared to BE!!! I'm lucky if I walk out with $5 in credit. So imagine my delight when I walked out with $90 in cash annnnd I scored my first pair of JBrand jeans. 😁 Granted not nearly as cheap as you all have found but for a short girl like me, perfect jeans are hard to come by.

Since I had credit, it's like free right? Attachment 2424248
Excellent! I feel you on the jeans! Jean are one of the few items I'll pay a little more for on eBay or even (gasp!) retail. Never full price, mind you. Good jeans are so hard to find.

Crazytown!! They were doing random "markdowns" today only. Whatever that means. They had lots of premium and contemporary designers so it must've been left over from their recent event. Now when does all this make it to the bag sale is my question. And has anyone ever gone because now I'm intrigued?
Love the second one! So cute. :)

Awesome! My mom collects vintage Fiesta and has done so for years. Way before it got "cool" and they started remaking it.

Praise the Lord! I'm so glad you aren't out too much cash, and that you're warm again!

I got a vintage Chloé jacket! 27.50 at Crossroads but I had my trade credit so it's like it was free, right? The collar and trim are oh-so-pettable velvet!

Not too sure of the age but I love it!

It was a good day, my buyer got her package. No idea what happened to it, I have a feeling it was misdelivered to someone else.

With my 'rewards' I only ended up paying 5+ change for tax. I hunted to no avail for the Phillip Lim bag I stupidly didn't buy in store but no luck.
Your finds are awesome. Love the Equipment blouse and the J Brands.

Best of all? The ankle straps have velcro closures!
Those look super cute!

Wow, congrats on that great find. Weren't you the one who found that Tiffany cat on ebay for super cheap?? Seems like you have great ebay luck :)

After Crossroads, GW and HW, i figured I'd press my luck and hit another GW. Some fun finds include this KS Amanda Bracelet Clutch that was green tagged so it was half off coming to a grand $2.00. Funny enough I own the same exact one I purchased at a KS sample sale many moons ago (back before they had an outlet store or a sample sale site). I remember buying it for $125 and thought that was a bargain then! But I've used her for many weddings and parties because she's perfect.
Attachment 2425529

I also found these two while making multiple rounds in the same GW. A navy blue Smythson iPhone case for $3 (silly people- this retails for over 150) and this vintage-ish coach wallet for $6.
Attachment 2425530Attachment 2425531

I know a lot of you are Coach aficionados. I'm pretty sure this is real but never heard/seen a clasp to say 'fiocchi Italy'. Any insight? I've done google searches and even checked tpf, but nada. If it's fake, I'll live. Like I said, still a newbie thrifter.
Attachment 2425532
Great looking clutch!

finally, a vintage dooney and bourke doctor bag for $25.

mind you these were all in the same thrift store (and only my great steals on bags, clothes is another story!)
That is an amazing Longchamp! Such a score! It looks like it's the planetes line. I scored a similar one myself this year for $4 :)

Beaded Jacket Ricco Antonio ... $3

It's posititvely encrusted with beads! I bet it weighs 5 pounds. There's a tiny repair I need to do on it at the back sleeve. The sleeve is split a bit and needs a hand sewing job and I'm just the girl!

trina turk, I was really pleased to find this. Long sleeves. Silk. Love the style. This was a goodwill find ... $3 ...

silk ... so lovely ...

1970's Maxi dress ... $1! Happy! This is a great fit .. maxi dress .... and it is warm!
You guys know I LOVE vintage. I really do. Look at all these animals! That's a lot of animals! I'm off to a Fondue Party right? I bet they will make something with sprouts and eggplant ...

mink lined jacket

Cashmere! This was $3 and came with a skirt. The skirt is too small, so I might take off the trim and use it elsewear ... or ... I might make it into a hat ... you know how I am. And in other news, I didn't know Project Runway was about people making stuff out of ...nothing! I missed ... um ... 12 years!? LOL ... I feel a TV Project runway binge coming on .... I watched an episode where they made a design outta the pajamas they were wearing when that Tim Gunn character (he's insane) came running in with his pass key and made them all death march over to Parsons ...

(I didn't know! Feels like when I found out that The Tudors was that hot guy nearly naked running around yelling "I'm the King of England!")




Looooove the vintage fabric and the Trina Turk dress.
Great beaded dress as well, you have been finding a lot of heavy pretty sparkly things :)

Love the wind charm.

I found a Marie St.John navy blue jumper and an 80's North Beach Leather vest. I found a few other things, all for $23.

I can't believe I found a pair of new chloe boots! They have a distressed leather, it's a bit lighter than this but I just conditioned it so its a light brown. It's more of a taupe. Cost $7.99!
