Thrifty Thursday #4

Hello there :)

I am very excited about this particular Thrifty Thursday post ^.^  I've got a bunch of things to show you from my last few ventures to my favorite shops.  Hopefully, I can remember the pricing of the pieces I'm going to show.  If not, oh well. *shrug*

Onward to the thriftiness!

I found this maroon-plum-ish colored work bag at a Thrift/Antique shop Lamar introduced me to. The shop is chock full of stuff.  It's somewhat organized... well actually it's really organized chaos.  It's called... A & J's Thrift and Antiques MJ's Thrift Store & Antiques (EDIT: I found the actual name)... or something like that.  If I find the receipt I'll correct the name.  Anywho, this bag cost me $2 and even though it has a considerable bit of scuffs/scratches, I still like it.  Maybe I can find some cute DIY way of fixing the scratches. So if anyone has any ideas- leave a comment.

These two silk blend scarves came from The Saving Way. I think I got them for $0.75 each... or maybe $0.50.  Anyway, I loved them even though I don't really know what I'm going to do with them.  The one on the left is square and the other is a long rectangle.  So I'm thinking headtie and headband... or maybe they'll end up being the lining of a crochet clutch... *shrug* who really knows. :)

Ok, here we have two rolls of fabric tape, two sets of replacement sewing machine needles, a seam ripper, and some fabric whitener.  All were found at Dirty Little Thrift Store (it's real name is Breaking Free Mission Thrift Store, but I think Dirty Little Thrift Store is much more accurate).  The thing about this store is that the cashiers price pretty much everything at the register. So all the things in this picture, the next thing I'm going to show you, and a necktie only cost me like $3.  That is stinkin awesome!

This is a storage box/book I got at Dirty Little Thrift store with the crafty notions above.  I found it and the majority of the sewing notions in a drawer in the furniture section.  That's something else I like about the DLTS- they will sell anything.  Some stores are like, 'no if you want what's in the drawer, you have to buy the whole thing...' HA! Whatever!

This is a grommet/snap tool. It cost me $3 and is most definitely one of the most potentially useful thrifted finds. I picked this up at my go-to store ThriftMart. I'm excited to use this! Too bad none of my works in progress call for grommets to be installed... better luck next time :)

OK! OK! OK!!! I am so beyond excited about these shoes! Please excuse the exclamation marks everywhere!!! I have been looking for a woven pair of sandals for such a long time, but every time I found a pair they were too small (boo size ten feet!)  So when I saw these at ThriftMart I was like,
"Hey these are so cute!  Aww... size 9 :( ... well let's try it anyway... wait... what's this... HUZZAH THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!  They must have been worn by some big size 9 lady ^.^ I don't really care! HURRAY!"
They fit and they're Aerosoles so they are really comfy.  Now for the price.................... only $3.00!!! Can you believe my good fortune! The thrifting deities were surely smiling upon me that day! lol.


Well, that brings us to the end of my thrift store haul/recap.  Thanks for visiting. I hope you had a pleasant Thursday and I pray that your Friday goes smoothly so that you can have a great weekend. Peace :)
