May's Thrift Store Treasures

Friday, May 29, 2009

Here are some of my favorite finds from the thrift store this month:

I found these red leather Steve Madden Mary Jane Mules yesterday and they are in perfect condition. I adore them and they are my favorite color! I love shoes that just slide on and they are so comfy! A bargain at $7.99
I found these Dr. Martens a couple of weeks ago for $5.
I love these black leather boots for $7.
I have always wanted a jogging stroller but they are soooo expensive. I picked this one up for $20 and then looked it up on the internet and found out that it is a $400 stroller. I love rollerblading and have already taken my toddler out a few times. We both love it! I love having breaks; it is hard to stop on roller blades.
I couldn't resist getting this for my daughter. She styles her dolls hair in it every day. Only $3!

My son is turning 11 next month and going into boy scouts, so I was thrilled to find this shirt. It would have cost me about $25 to get it at the scout store. I was thrilled to get this one in perfect condition for $5.99. I also found this beautiful red leather wallet that I looooove for $3!

I just found this really great blog that I am instantly in love with and had to link up this post. I am hoping that Jen from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam will inspire me to be able to shop for more than just shoes next time. Go to her link party to check out other thrifty fashion finds.

  2. You're so lucky to find shoes that fit! Those red ones are gorgeous. I just posted my yard sale finds, so I added them to the Mr. Linky.

  3. Sadly, the only "finds" I have to report are yard sale items from one morning of tagging along with my sister on her quest to find new things for her house - "Discovery Toys" Marble Raceway parts (with a nice tote that is probably worth more than the parts inside) = $2; 10 "Highlights Puzzlemania" books in a canvass tote (which are expensive, we own a couple already, and I break them out at Stake Conference to keep my kids quiet for the 2 hours) = $4; AND the one thing I was really looking for - some cheap, smaller plastic shelving for storage in our crawl space = $2!

    Not too exciting, but - Hey, you asked.

  7. I love all of your shoe finds! Garage sales are the best for finding great shoes. That little styling chair is so cute, and you got an amazing deal on that jogging stroller!

  13. GREAT finds! Especially the boy scout uniform. My daughter is in girl scouts and the uniform supplies can get a bit pricey. Every little bit helps!

  20. Those are such fun finds. :) They said that red shoes are the new black. They are showing red with EVERYTHING! and yes, you got a steal on the Boy Scout shirt. I had to buy one new last year right before camp...it was more than $25. UGH!

  21. My favorite pair of brown leather boots were only $5 on clearance (brand new) at Old Navy a couple of years ago. They had been around $60 originally, but I caught them at the end of season clearance and wear them all the time!
