thrift shop finds of the week

Hello everyone, I hope the week is going well for all of you. My week started of great. Value Village had a 50% of day on Monday and I spent probably 2 hours in the store hunting down various goodies. My time paid off, I found lots! These pictures are just a sample of the many things I ended up buying. By the end of my extreme value shopping experience I was lugging three, that's right three of the huge bags they give you back to the van. Even though I came away with so much the grand total was only 50 dollars. It was just like that Ikea commercial only I had no one to shout "start the car" to. Among my finds were the vase and cup that I am going to use as a vase in the top picture. The second picture is two sweaters I picked out and some craft stuff I found for a buck. The last two are coats, one for me and one for my son. I am not a big pink person but I just couldn't resist the coat for less than 5 dollars. It is so soft and cushy I almost can't wait for the cooler weather. My son's coat is an almost new winter jacket originally from the Gap. Now not only is finding a jacket for him out of the way, but it was sooo cheap too. You gotta love that.
Now that you have seen my goodies... ok that didn't sound right, make that treasures, check out this blog by the Dalomba's. They are hosting a Goodwill finds day so be sure to check out some of the other cool things others have found lately. You can find them here .
Other than my shopping I have been painting some dollhouse furniture and doing some stitching. I am planning on posting some of those pictures tomorrow. Until then, have a great night,


  1. great finds!! i love the pink jacket!!

    thanks for linking up this week!

  2. When I heard you mention Value Village (or the V boutique as I call it) I knew you must be from my neck of the woods. I live in Hamilton, Ont..

    Dome. you have a Talize store near you? It is a thrift store like VV, but I think they have a better return policy - the price of returned merchandise gets put on a gift card that you can use at any time.

    Great finds BTW.

  3. I am in Caledon and I haven't heard of Talize but I will definatley look it up. Thanks for the tip and the comments. :)
