Yesterday I went to Deseret Industries, it's the Utah version of Goodwill. I went in search of winter clothing. We don't have too much in the way of cool weather raiment and I didn't want to spend too much on winter clothes since this might be the only (real) winter we ever experience. So that's why I went to the thrift store. But actually, I love thrift stores so I had planned to go anyways.
Oh my gosh. You guys. I went crazy. I spent $71.00. I didn't intend to spend that much. But you won't believe how much I got for that price! Are you ready?
3 Pairs of pants, 3 jackets, 5 sweaters, 3 shirts and 2 pairs of shoes. On average I paid less than $5 per item! I'm so excited! The crowning glory of my purhace are two shirts and one blazer that were originally from Banana Republic. Now, ordinarily I don't really care about brand names (clearly, because I'm shopping at a thrift store) but it gives me so much satisfaction to know that at Banana Republic I would probably have spent a full day's pay on those items (Maybe more. That store is way over-priced.) but at the thrift store they only cost me about one 1/2 hour of my hard earned wages!
Yay! I'll post pictures when Peter gets back from his "man weekend" with the camera. I hope you can stand the wait until then. ;o)
