Well I needn't have worried...they took to the thrill of thrifting like a spider monkey on a bologna sandwich...full attack mode! Two hours later we met at the register and proudly showed off our Booty...not that booty ;-)..our clothes silly! My mom, who is a young 82, found this wonderful 2 piece J Crew wool sweater set. It was in perfect condition and with the Wed discount came to $3.75. Isn't it adorable? She's kinda cute too.
I think she is getting into this modeling thing. Great buy mom!
Her other purchase is this beautiful creme cotton designer wrap top. The embroidery is just fabulous all around the blouse...so delicate and feminine. Again with 25% discount......$3.75. My sister-in-law, Melissa, found two wonderful skirts, a couple a great tops, two new leather belts, a fleece jacket for my brother Rick and a fleece top for her son, Jon. All that for about $45.00. I am proud to say I awarded each of them an Associates Degree in Thrifting for their hard work.
Salvation Macy's is definitely on their list of places to go next time they come to Virginia. I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of my family started making thrifting pilgrimages to the Salvation Macy's Shrine. Instead of no longer needed crutches and wheelchairs, people will be leaving their department store credit cards and Walmart sale ads. Maybe little alters where you can light a candle in prayer to help find a good bargain. Ok...maybe that is getting a little sacreligious...sorry. Can you tell I am passionate about this subject? Well until next time be kind and stay creative.
