The good and bad thing about going to thrift stores is you never know what you will find. If you are looking for something specific, there is no guarantee you will find it, but along the way you might find a few things you have wanted previously. But the really good thing is that you spend so little on each item, you don't even feel bad about getting it, especially if you can find some really good quality items.
Emily and I had a very successful thrifting date this weekend, which started with a delicious breakfast to fuel our shopping. Neither of us are really big on lots of shopping. We don't really go to malls or do much clothes shopping. But, it was our day. I got a few nice quilted jackets and Emily found the southwest style jacket for me! A lovely dress that can go with so many things (the bottom of the dress has some pretty applique features). Barely worn Minnetonka Moccasins? Yes please! A vintage looking necklace jumped out at me on my way to the register. Emily got some Ked's sneakers and several dresses.
Mostly, though, it was a lovely day hanging out with my friend and enjoying a relaxing day off from our busy schedules!
