 I did this post today to encourage you to celebrate National Thrift Shopping Day this Friday August 17th by going thrift shopping! If this amazing haul doesn't convince you to go thrift shopping this Friday, I don't know what will! Many thrift stores including Volunteers of America will be offering discounts in honor of the holiday! And don't worry there is still a ton of great stuff left at all of the Volunteers of America stores- I didn't buy it all!

I got 12 items for $50! That's an average $4.16 per item!

Challenge for you:
1. shop your local Volunteers of America Thrift Store this Friday
2. see how many items you can get for $50
3. let me know if you beat me (13+ items)! I dare you to try!

  10. Gosh, where would we be without thrifting? It makes me very sad to think I could have 1/2 items new for the same price as a whole load.

    I have a lot of loves here.. The French Cxn corset, the Fleurish dress, and the One September cardigan. I think that cardi would be so amazing in the Fall!

  11. I will have to go check out my local thrift stores this Friday!
