Thrifty Things Friday #55

Hi everyone!

Is your wardrobe Spring/Summer ready? Not me! I was trying on shorts the other day while purging the closet and they did not fit! I have gone down a size since last summer.  A lot of shirts are still okay to wear but, shorts and capris, not so much.

Building up a seasonal wardrobe is not cheap! However, if you are a thrifter you can get lucky and find some great deals out there.


I stopped at my favorite little independent thrift store a couple of days ago and was able to pick up some cute clothes.


I got:

  • 4 pairs of capris
  • 3 pairs of shorts
  • 6 tops

Total spent: : $23.75

Not bad.


Let’s check out some fun party participants from last week!

Over at Sharing Shadymont, several fun thrift finds including this cute little shelf.


And Marty at A Stroll Thru Life showed us this gorgeous end table.
