Secondhand Treasures

There’s a Frugal Fashionista Fashion Show going on at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam today, showcasing fabulous secondhand finds.  Here are some of my secondhand treasures:

I found these shoes at a thrift store yesterday for $6.00, perfect for my upcoming 10th anniversary party.  Pointy-toed shoes are my favorites, and I usually have a difficult time finding anything pretty for my size 10 feet.  I love the rhinestones details and the $85.00 original price tag on the bottom of the shoes.                                       75787574 I have had the most success finding clothing for my daughter.  The top was $2.00 and the skirt was $1.25.                                             75847585Thankfully, she likes dressing up, as I always seem to find dress clothes for terrific prices.  These dresses were in great condition and cost $2.00 each.                                                   7591 7593 These shrugs can be worn with dresses or with pants for a more casual look.  The pink one was $2.00 at a thrift store, but I splurged a bit more on the white one at a consignment store, paying $10.00 for it.  My daughter wore it with her Easter dress and will get many more uses out it, so it was worth the “hefty” price. And it was so pretty…                         7587 7598 Here’s my princess in her brand new with tags $3.00 thrift store dress (navy blue with satin trim) and shrug, all dressed up for Easter!Easter 2009 Easter 4 And my son, also dressed for Easter, in a $2.00 dark navy suit from the thrift store.  The tie and shirt combo were purchased new but on clearance for $4.00. 

Shopping at thrift stores can be such a fun adventure, since you never know what you will find.  It can be frustrating if you’re looking for something specific, but with an open mind, you may find something even better than you originally wanted to get.  That’s often been my experience.  And I have been blessed beyond measure at the wonderful finds at bargain prices.

Your kids look GREAT! No one would know you got their outfits so cheap - except now we do! You are also right about finding not what you are looking for but something even better. God is like, and with more than thrifting, huh?
