Top Ten Favorite Thrift/Consignment Store finds of 2011

Last year was chuck full of great thrift store adventures for me. I traveled all around the country and found some of the most unique items. There is not enough space on this blog for me to showcase them all. All I can say is that shopping thrift has been financially beneficial and personally rewarding. Granted shopping thrift stores can be hit or miss at times and sometimes coming away empty-handed is the outcome. However remaining positive will yield you better results. that combined with a little patience can reveal many treasures.

Silver Spring Sewing Society took several field trips last year to many of our local thrift stores and when I tell you the women walked away with some fantastic finds I really mean it. We are getting together next week and I hope to take some photos of the great items they have picked up. I’ll be writing a post soon about living the life of a thrift store shopaholic. In the meantime enjoy some of Fav Thrift Finds of 2011

Stay tuned for my top ten Estate Sale finds of 2011. Coming soon.

Black leather pointy toe shoes made in spain. I googled them to find the retail price. WOW! Goodwill in Rockville $12

Whenever I find BCBG I almost always pick it up even if its not my size or my style. I can surely find a friend who can benefit. This blouse I picked up at the Goodwill Trunk Sale last year.

What's better than finding a fabulous find for a friend. This is my friend Lily wearing a mustard yellow Arden B leather coat with a fox fur collar.

I attended an event with FLOTUS and saw her wearing these silver pumps. I thought these would look great with my peach suit. And they did. Don't have a photo with them on but I will this spring
