THRIFT STORE FIND




I love a good thrift store find and this one was my favorite all-time find. 

I was just walking through the aisles and of course had to go by the purses to see if there was anything interesting...because, well I love me a new purse. I was about to walk away when some brown leather caught my attention. I walked a little closer and saw the Dooney and Bourke label and couldn't believe my eyes. It was a gem, covered in some sort of white film, grim all around the edges and the inside needed a good vacuuming, but for $10 I was down for the challenge. And after a little loving it was good as new. 

I love my new purse, its just the right size, not to big (so I stuff my life into it) and not to small. 
Who else loves to go to thrift stores???

  3. Great find! :)
    I love thrift stores. But have never found anything good at one!
    Every time I am so hopeful and just leave sad because I've searched high and low for nothing.

    1. This has been my best find yet, but I will say you just have to keep looking. Sometimes theres a little gem hidden away. I always end up leaving with a vase or something I really didn't need :)

  6. I absolutely LOVE thrifting. You never know what you might find. It seems like you can never go into a thrift store looking for a specific item, you wont find it. However, if you have a little time and can wander around the store, something can usual catch the eye. I rarely like to pay full price on things...most of our nice baskets for organization have come from Goodwill. I have a thing for vintage cameras ( which are VERY rare to come by it seems) but have manage to find a few for around $10. Picture frames to make DIY chalkboards, and vintage blue mason jars.I have never purchased any purse or bag from a retail store. They all have come from a thrift store, practically perfect condition, needing maybe a bleach wipe or leather cleaner. Goodwill frequently obtains brand new items from Target that just don't sell in the store. New tags still on! Glad to know someone else enjoys a little thrifting! :)
