You don’t know how much you’ll miss something until it’s gone. I am of course talking about cell reception. I expected some dreaded “no service” zones but not days and days…. Sigh. Now that I’m back in the good ol’ Alberta cell coverage, I will catch up all my thrifting adventures but first a moment of silence for the original post that I had prepared and ready to publish that mysteriously vanished… (I’m having a hard time liking you right now, Blogger Mobile.)
Sacks provides financial support to the Sexual Assault Counseling Center. A good cause and they concur with me about dresses!
Sure enough I spotted a happenin piece off my hunting list, but sadly it was the wrong size. 🙁
Some sunnies are just too big.
They had a good vintage section that had me ponderin whether this yellow jumpsuit would be considered happenin.
I found one pretty top for $2 then realized I had no American cash. 🙁 Goodbye pretty top.
The Community Closet was AWESOME!
Pants for $2.50, dresses for $3, friendly staff and a fitting room with a bathmat on the floor! (These small thrift stores have the most interesting fitting rooms!). Then another tragedy occurred! My phone died! From 35% to dead in a second! I don’t understand what happened but it meant I didn’t capture my finds OR get a selfie with John Mayer who happened to be standing on the streets of Livingston! Sigh.
I like how Goodwill arranges their stock by colour. It’s like an inviting rainbow!
Pretty floral pattern. Too short. 🙁
Gray jersey wrap dress for $2? Yes please!
Nice colour, nice fabric but what the what is with all the bunchy fabric in the middle?
These light cotton Old Navy tops are perfect for those of us prone to shoulder sunburns on hot days. I only got one – any guesses which one?!
This perfect-condition blazer was labeled a petite but I thought it might work as a cropped blazer… The tailoring told me otherwise!
I saved this piece de resistance for last, crossing my fingers it would fit…
You bring in your clothes and get cash on the spot!
Luckily I outsmarted the fitting room signage and found plenty to try.
These beauties were both a smidgen too big despite my road-trip snacking and camping imbibing (what I consider to be my camping-survival instinct).
This dress fit but reminded me of Mrs. Roper.
I liked this pretty top but noticed a small hole which means my other thrifted tops would budge it right out of the wearing rotation.
I ended up snagging this skirt at the last minute because I’m fresh out. Pink, gray, mustard – obviously it was meant for me.
I wasn’t convinced it was a thrift store at first…
Yep, it’s a thrift store alright but are there any clothes?
Score!! 99 cent rack at the bottom of the stairs in the back! A little treasure chest!
I scored a few pieces including this light cotton floral pretty top. Not sure if this beats a wool winter coat for $2 though!
This was a true thrift store and had a bit of everything including a box of free Bibles (“We don’t charge for Bibles”).
I didn’t find any clothing pieces here but…
I almost bought this for Megan Voss. And I had a good chat with the owner and it turns out we missed the town fair by a day! Darnitall!
No bathmat in this fitting room!
Just me in denial about short dresses again.
I have been looking for an olive skirt and thought I wanted a pencil skirt but this Gap one had a cool summer vibe that worked with all the tops.
This pink striped banana republic tee had my name on it.
I ended up taking home these two pieces and might just wear them tomorrow. Because I’m like a 12-year-old with waiting to wear new clothes.
