SCORE: A Direct Hit. Thrift Town Haul of the Century. Total Damage: $40

SCORE: A Direct Hit. Thrift Town Haul of the Century. Total Damage: $40

Yesterday morning I played a bit of hookey and my hubby and I and booked it over to Thrift Town for some treasure hunting. This place is definitely ghetto, but correct me if I’m wrong, the south side is the BEST place to go thrift store shopping in almost any city, am I right???

Tip: go thrift store shopping on a weekday, when the tag sales are the best, and find out what days they restock. This Thursday, it was 30% off all clothing in the store AND 50% off everything with a pink tag.

Somebody please pinch me, this is the greatest haul ever!


Clockwise from left:

Ann Taylor Sandals: $5

Taupe moccasins with T-strap from Germany:$2

Black woven brogues: $4

Adorable Tuquoise 60′s Pinwheels tennis shoes: $2

Black Oxfords: $4 (50% off!)

There was actually a break-in the night before and they smashed the jewelery case (Like I said, crack town). They managed to sneak off without these beauties:


80′s futuristic pewter earrings: $0.99 (50% off!)

Handmade silver eagle earrings: $3

As Amber says, “Things are looking up!” I HOPE that this is just the beginning of a string of good luck. I just had a job interview today:


I got the top at Thrift Town yesterday too. $4! Also a nautical cap sleeve striped tee and an Ann Taylor skirt with red boat schematics all over it.

Danny didn’t find anything. EXCEPT FOR 2 LACOSTE PULLOVERS FOR $3 EACH! He got one for himself and our friend-who-knows-a-good-thing-when-she-sees-it, Kaar-kaar.

They are like two peas in a pod, or two cuties on a rainy tennis court:


So then I got home, and discovered a beautifully amorphous package on my doorstep. Michelle from Lady Language had sent me some samples to thank us for Amber’s post! (I’ll have to save those beauties for a future post.)

They say luck comes in threes…

Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.

    Nothing’s so uplifting as a terrific day at the thrifts! What bodacious luck with all the shoes, Eve! For some reason I don’t find many great shoes. (I did get some brown Cole Haan woven brogues similar to yours for $12 on ebay, happy find of the week!)In our city the “downtown” thrift is mainly my mecca for gorgeous old dishware. The richier side is where I find sharp vintage dresses. Love those pewter earrings!

  • great work.. keep it coming


  • The Woven brogues are a great buy.

  • that’s so weird! i had a major shoe haul the other day at the salvi. i got four pairs, for ONE DOLLAR A PAIR. it was like heaven.

    Hello there…I am looking for a good way to contact Diana to place an order for a floral button-down tank that i adored (but didn’t fit into) at the 4th ave st fair. I tried emailing the gmail address, but have not heard anything back. Could you please direct me! I would love to buy a top. thanks!
