Any Favorites?

 You may have noticed this is a pretty big haul. Well, I've been stocking up because I'm selling this Sunday at The Columbus Flea! It's a hip flea market that happens a few times per year. If you are in the Columbus, Ohio area this Sunday come out and see me- I would love to meet you and dress you- does that sound weird?

  1. Love the dresses and the skirts! I wish I could come to Columbus this weekend; we have things going on.

  2. Oh I love the Target skirt with the bike! If only I could get to America from Australia in such a short time ... darn it!

  3. Awesome finds, love the military coat. Gorgeous! And the purple dress is divine. Kathryn, if you're reading this, I'm in Australia and I do what Lindsay does.

  4. Well those are some AMAZING finds - good luck!!!

  5. wow! nicely done! our thift store here isn't usually so fortunate!

  6. Great finds as usual! Wish I lived near Columbus so I could come by the flea. Good luck with your selling!
    I have a giveaway for thredUP today on my blog. Stop by and enter if you get a chance!

  7. I love the pencil skirt, the 2 vintage sweaters and vintage purse! You have a great eye!

    Please check out my blog and channel and let me know what you think XOXO

  8. I love the velvet jacket! So beautiful for fall and winter.

  9. You do press or steam these before selling right?

  10. I love the BCBG dress and the London times dress! I think it's crazy you found one donated...I just heard of that brand last year via another blog!

  11. I LOVE that vintage purse! I wish I had luck at thrift stores!
    Jeans and a Teacup

  12. The BCBG and Limited dresses are so pretty! And those Cole Haan oxfords! These are fab finds.

  13. That Talbot's dress is to die for! You always make me wish I had cooler local resale & thrift shops. Haha


  14. I really love the London times dress! And the cole haan shoes.

  15. I really love the London times dress! And the cole haan shoes.

  16. I love just about everything, but I especially love that Limited dress that looks like a ruffled shirt tucked into a skirt. How often do you go shopping? And how many different stores do you go to in a day? I need some tips! You've already provided the inspiration.

    1. Hi Bethany! I usually got to about 3-4 stores per week and spend about 1-2 hours in each store! Click on Thrift Tips at the top of my blog for more tips!

  17. what size is the merona polka dot skirt and are you going to sell it on ebay? :)

    1. size 2 and yes I am putting it up on Ebay very soon!

  18. That was my first question.
    Do you keep all your finds or do you sell them?
    What does your closet look like?
    Do you rotate your clothes a lot?
    I have just started to thrift by reading your blog. I had to stop a little because I was buying more clothes than I did at retail but my small closet doesn't have room, lol.

    1. If it fits me I keep it; if not I sell it! I actually have an entire room in our house set up as a closet! It is so nice- I'm very spoiled! I do tend to get tired of things easily so I might wear something once then sell it. When my room starts to burst at the seams then I know it's time to move some things out! It is really easy to accumulate a lot when you are only paying a few bucks for each item! I try to only keep things that I really love and fit me perfectly!

  19. Oh my gosh I'm just in awe of these finds and your husband is so lucky those amazing shoes fit! Great finds! I can't wait to go thrifting now! Haha


  20. Ooooh, I love that yellow dress!! I wish I could have bought it from you. You're a smartie for finding such beautiful deals and re-selling them. Best wishes!!
