As most of you who know me probably know, I am a big fan of thrift store shopping. In fact, I would venture so far as to say that 90% of my wardrobe has come from thrift stores, or has been given to me secondhand. I don't know, I just usually find that you can get good quality clothes at a good price at thrift stores, so my mom and I enjoy going almost every weekend.
This weekend I took some friends thrift store shopping to introduce them to the fun. My friend Sarah is also a big thrift store shopper, so she and I had fun watching our friends Kristy & Michelle discover how much fun it is. We all found something fun.
While out, we decided to have lunch at Sonic because it is kind of a treat when we venture to the next town over. While we were enjoying our 99-cent hamburgers (which totally trump hamburgers off of other fast food value menus, at a much better price), tots with cheese (I never had tater tots as a kid but love them now!) and cherry limeade (a Sonic favorite), the friendly carhops rolled around on their roller skates to offer customers samples of a limeaid creme slushy. We, of course, accepted a sample and had fun drinking our little slushy out of the miniature plastic cup. And it was quite tasty.
I mentioned that we all found some treasures on our outing. I only found two things this time, but I am quite pleased with what I found.
Yep, I'm pretty pleased with my finds. :)
As a side note, I think I need to stop looking in the skirt section at thrift stores. The green corduroy skirt brings me to a grand total of 22 skirts in my closet. Not including my floor-length formal skirt, and not including any of my dresses. Plus not including any skirts in my winter clothes boxes (I can think of at least one). I already knew I had a shoe fetish. I think I have a skirt fetish, too. :)
EDIT (08/23/10) - When I woke up this morning and realized I needed to take the dogs on their walk and it was only 51-degrees outside, I decided to wear my new purple fleece. I am pleased to report that it kept me quite warm.
