Two Days in Minnesota MID-WEEK with favorite female relatives? NO PROBLEM!! We have this agenda for when we get together….
Wednesdays are perfect for hitting every 2nd hand store and consignment shop in town, and Thursdays are reserved for yard-sale-marathons!
I am so worn out from shopping shopping shopping and bargain hunting and laughing! But we are headed out in the morning early for the yard sales, so I am recapping the thrift shop hopping before I head to bed!
What was on my “HOT LIST?!?” Why darling, don’t you know that EVERY woman needs a little black dress for a cruise?! See this little number in the pic above? I have no idea what this would have cost me had I bought it “at the mall” ----but this little must-have is ADORABLE on, and I got it for a whopping $15.00 bucks! Cha-ching! ((Yes, I know the top of my head is missing, but it was the dress that is the focus of this pic! LOL!))
We were at Savers in Bloomington…each of us pushing our carts around and searching for treasure….Mom has a purse fetish! She won’t admit it, she will justify it every time WHY she needs another purse…and we just laugh and nod and smile and let her indulge her every purse-whim!
I was wandering around, not sure where to start digging, just looking --- when I came upon this wall of Barbies in plastic bags…..
CREEPY!! But Barbies hanging UPSIDE DOWN in plastic bags is even creepier than Barbies hanging right side UP in plastic bags….
And trolls in plastic bags?! SACRILEDGE!!!! ((Speaking of which..umm…Lorraine? I’ve been watching the mail every day for that package and it hasn’t shown up yet..and I’m so anxious for it to get to me, just wanted you to know!))
Growing up I used to envy and play with Auntie Joy’s trolls extensively! Joy is only 5 years older than me, and I literally worshipped her as I was growing up….Still do!
After a bit more shopping, we were joined by another partner in crime --- My Mom & Aunt’s COUSIN --- Janine!
She’s another wild and crazy thrifter, and I was so tickled to see her! She shopped with us a bit and then spent time helping me pick out things to take on the cruise. Her fashion sense is fabulous --- She really helped me a lot!
This little number? Cute on the hanger, terrible on me……it stayed behind!
These two tshirts? They were the same style and I loved them both, but the orange one did NOTHING for my complexion and my hair color…but the purple one looks great with my eyes ((Thanks for saying so, Janine!)) And it was definitely a keeper! I’ll just have to save the orange color for use in QUILTS, not to WEAR!
Here are the three lovely ladies after a lunch at Applebees! From Left to Right, Mom, her sister Joy, and Cousin Janine! I loved spending the day with these ladies!
Tomorrow it will be up and at it for the yard sale adventure of the year. I’m sure we will find some great bargains! If so, I’ll also be on the lookout for an extra duffel bag to haul all my treasures home in ;c)
Time for some beauty sleep..((These gals wore me out today!))
Sleep Sweet, Everyone!
