Goodwill was so good to me on my last visit. One pleasant surprise about Iowa is how much cheaper the thrift stores are. A different thrift store was selling all clothing for 10 cents a piece! But along with cheaper prices, they are twice as scary. Items piled on the floor everywhere with claustrophobia-inducing narrow aisles. At Goodwill, the skirts were somewhat organized by color... but the blouses. I just couldn't brave it this time. Aisles and aisles of t-shirts, tops, blouses, and sweaters. Sometimes separated by type, but the shear volume and chaos is just too much for me. Someday I will work up the courage.
Thrift stores are the best for buying skirts. It's so much easier to find skirts that hit at the knee, and there's an abundance of classic a-lines. Did I mention they're cheap?
Little rascal thought I set up the skirts so he could take a bath on them. It's kind of embarrassing how many times I kicked him out but then he would sneak back in because our door doesn't close properly. He would immediately position himself on the skirts. I have maybe 3 pictures of skirts, and 10 with skirts + kitty.
I got the shirt on the left for Jason. He calls it too old-manish and bright-colored, I call it vintage. And the shirt on the right I managed to grab out of the shirt aisle before I had to dash out in terror. I'm hoping to layer this shirt under some sweaters. Did you hear that Arizona? Layering a shirt AND a sweater - what?
I also found these dainty little cups. Did I need them? No. But they had dandelions. (You can imagine how well this reasoning went over with my husband)
I also got some frames for a new frame collage in the living room as well as a nice woven basket/trash can. I'm getting better at this thrifting business, I am!
