I did a little thrifting trip early in July and to be honest, I’m not really sure what I was thinking. A few things were great choices… and the others. Well, let’s get to it.
Spring Blossom Green Pyrex Bowl, $6.99
As I shared in my Antiquing Fun post, I’ve loved Pyrex for a long time and recently decided to start collecting it. I found this Crazy Daisy bowl first and was thrilled that it was only $6.99! This pattern was made between 1972 – 1978 and it just makes me so happy. Rather than sticking it in my china cabinet to stare at, I’ve been using it pretty regularly for various kitchen needs. It’s in perfect condition after over 40 years… so I’m sure it will still look great over the years that I use it!
Workout DVD’s, $2.99 each
Since I won’t be going back to the gym for a while, I decided to buy a few workout DVD’s to add to my rotation. On this stop I found Billy Blanks Tae-Bo, Denise Austin Power Zone, and Billy’s Bootcamp Cardio Inferno. I also found Latin Cardio Dance and the Dirty Dancing Official Dance Routine DVD…so that should be fun and hilarious!
North Face Woodland Sweater Wrap, $14.99 on sale for $7
I wish this one photographed better, but it’s a cocoon sweater wrap, so it looks kind of odd on the hanger. I did a ton of googling and finally tracked this down it was from the Spring 2018 North Face release and retailed for $75. I love it so much and it will look so cute with a t-shirt and jeans once the weather cools down. The only problem is that I overlooked that it has wool in the fabric of the sleeves, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to wear it!
More Workout DVD’s, $1.50 each, on sale for $.75 each
What can I say, I was on a DVD buying spree and on 4th of July weekend everything in the store was half off! On this stop I picked up: Little Miss Sunshine (my FAVORITE movie!), Jillian Michaels, Hip Hop Abs (Beachbody), Cardo Kickboxing, 30-Day Jump Start. For less than a dollar each, they were a steal!
Okay, moving on the my what-was-I-thinking items…
DKNY Tulle Skirt, $5.99, on sale for $3
You guys. I don’t know. A tulle skirt just grabs me and I must have gone blind when I saw this one. It’s a black tulle DKNY skirt with swirly bits at the bottom… and now that the shopping adrenaline has worn off, I think its actually kind of ugly. At least it was just a $3 mistake!
Harajuko Mini for Target skirt, $7.99 on sale for $4
Once again, that dang tulle got me… this time with glittery silver stars. It’s a new with tags Harajuku Mini for Target skirt and it’s so puffy and glittery, I couldn’t help myself. I’m not totally regretting this one though. My initial thought was that it would make for a great Halloween costume piece, but after trying it on I’m kind of digging it as a running skirt. Sure, it’s a running skirt that will throw glitter all over myself and everyone who passes within 5 feet of me… but that kind of sounds pretty perfect!
