Thrift Store Finds

Don't you just love when the thrift store does a sale: Everything You Can Stuff in a Paper Sack for $2? It's a dream come true for me! I got some exceptional deals yesterday; the most exciting of which was some leather dress boots, which I've been needing. I often wear dresses, even in the winter, and I usually just wear my normal Crocs or sandals around anyway. This usually works in WY unless we're in the mountains, but is crazy when we visit the arctic world of MN. So, I've been wanting to get some warmer shoes for winter that aren't snow boots (I have those) but aren't sandals either. I was browsing a local department store and thinking, "I just can't swing a $30 pair of shoes right now." I wasn't sure what I was going to do about it, but God provided! Not only did I get a pair of leather boots in my bag deal, which were clean and hardly used and not stinky (and yes, I washed them in the washer with lots of soap to make sure they are VERY clean), but I also got a pretty, thick dress for Ali for next year, jammies and overalls for Jer, receiving blankets to make diapers out of, a zippered purse toy for Ali, some brand new (with tags on them) baby gloves for a baby shower gift, thick socks for Jer, new baby socks for my gift bag, nice snow boots for my nephew, and a shirt for one of my friends' children. If you have children, this is the way to shop people! Some of you will remember that a few weeks ago I found a cute pair of hardly-used Mountain Sprout polar fleece overalls for Jer at this same thrift shop. I checked the price online and that same pair costs $56 not including shipping! Who pays that for kid's clothing? I love that I got them for a quarter!

What a great deal Lindsey! I'm so glad you got such fun finds for the kids! I need your luck sometimes! I just did a very controversial post on my blog.. I'm kinda nervous. Talk about baring your opinions! Its about the Golden Compass. Maybe you can do me a favor and check it out, see if it is OK. :) Thanks

I think I'm going to have to employ you to do my Christmas shopping for me!
