I have been SO BUSY lately, running around like a crazy lady (which leaves me so little time to blog, sorry!). It’s unfortunate too, because I have been DYING to tell you all about my amazing 4th of July weekend thrift-shopping experience in Phoenix since…well…the 4th of July.
Did you know Phoenix has some of the best thrift shopping (aka thrifting) in the country? Yeah, me neither, but according to Fabulous on a Budget (one of my favorite blogs), it does! Per the recommendation from Fab on a Budget, I decided to scope out Hospice of the Valley’s White Dove Thrift Shoppe, and let me tell you: IT. WAS. AMAZING! I found so many great deals, most of which were marked down even more! I discovered a whole new appreciation for that whole “one person’s trash, is another’s treasure” thing:
Check out some of my fav thrift market finds…
A lovely Ralph Lauren Cashmere cable-knit sweater, $8. Yes, you read that right…CASHMERE!
Going right along with that whole boho Native American trend that’s so hot right now,
I replaced the buttons on this pleated baby-blue blouse, for delicate pearl ones. The super-feminine look scored me DOZENS of compliments!
This silk sweater is perfect for chilly evenings on the beach, cuddled up with the hubs! Silk Sweater,
…and you can never have too many cozy beach sweaters, especially when the price is right! Ralph Lauren cable-knit,
But my favorite thing to thrift for, is home goods. For example…
The platinum ring on these vintage cocktail glasses go perfectly with my wedding china, $8 for set of 6
This glass lamp is the perfect choice to replace the hubs’ ugly ones in our bedroom, $10. It’s in perfect condition, you’d never guess it was thrifted!
I’ve been eyeing this Kate Spade vase at Macy’s, $75, for a loooong time
Look familiar?! Just $4, thrifted! The vase looks great with my favorite large-stemmed, leafy flowers like Hydrangea, peonies, and these bright, cheerful sunflowers.
I’ve been searching for a storage bench for the foot of my bed, so when I saw this sad little gem, I couldn’t resist! She could be so glam after a little make-over, and I always love a good DIY project. Thrifted for just $63, and I also scored 7 yards of fabric to reupholster it, for just $5.50.
After my thrifting-spree, I stopped by Goodwill, where I snagged MORE little treasures. My total bill: $2.50!
