Who here are thrift store shoppers?

I'm becoming one. I'm sick of spending a ton of money on things that break so easily from stores when they were made in China or Taiwan!

From now on, clothes and toys will be bought at Thrift Stores!!!

i do sometimes. its hard to find things when i need them but when im just out looking around for nothing specific, i can find good deals. ya know like when the boys need jeans like right now, i never find their size at the thrift stores unless i get really lucky. but if its not a need i can find clothes to put away for when they grow into it.

We buy most of our clothes at second hand stores. There is one in our hometown that is in a really nice part of town, so it always has really nice clothes and shoes.

I love charity shops as we call them in the UK, and car boot sales, and Ebay. Lots of clothes, toys and books in our house come from one or other of them!

definitely a fan here!! LOL, it's the only way (besides ebay) I can get my favorite cookware!! Most of Kaiden's baby items were 2nd hand and I still get his clothes 2nd hand. I just don't see the point of buying new when there's so much great used stuff out there!

Went to the thrift store yesterday and I got:

A small altar cloth.
A heavy/circular wall hanging that has the word Herbs on it and then a bunch of herb names.
A beautiful ceramic green vase I'll put flowers in. Looks like an old fashioned pitcher.
A white flower wall hangy thing that I want to paint and use to hold the girls' coats or something.
Tap shoes for Kailey, sun glasses, some doll thing, a Dora ball...


All for $18!
