If you have been reading this blog for any time at all, you know that I head straight to the vintage dishes whenever I enter a thrift store. I don't often take the time to go through clothing, pick through purses or browse the jewelry counter. Last time I was at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, though, I had a coupon that required spending $25 to get $5 off. (It was an old coupon. You can now get a $10-off coupon when you donate clothing or housewares.)
I didn't find quite enough glasses, plates, etc. to reach $25. But I did spot this floral-design straw tote bag. I got the idea from Design Mom to keep a "summer bag" packed and ready to go for summer excursions - you know, with sunscreen, towel, hand wipes, sunglasses - that sort of thing. So when I saw this thrifty bag, I knew just what I would use it for. Of course, being the hasty and kind of unobservant thrifter I am, I didn't notice the name stitched on the bag.
When I got home my daughter was like, "Why does your bag have a name on it?"
Heading to the cash, I noticed this pretty silver bracelet. I have large wrists and I find many bracelets uncomfortable. This one is nice and stretchy and smooth so it feels quite comfy.
It still had the original Denver Hayes tag on it (from Canadian retailer Mark's), with a price marked around $17. I got it for $2.99.
Do you buy accessories at thrift stores? What do you look out for?
