Like all die hard thrifters/ yard sale hunters/ scavengers, I have a few favorite finds. one of the best is a vintage four coat from a thrift store in Cincinnati, in perfect condition, for $4.

I think the only thrift find I've ever had is a huge pink knit sweater. I wore it today and to my surprise a lot of people liked it. I go to a school where most kids don't wear different things unless they honestly can't dress. I hope it was a nice surprise anyway.

Oh goodness, I don't even know where to begin. My rose-colored 50's ball gown, my vintage Coach bag from my aunt, Salvatore Ferragamo flats in mint condition, Lennon shades, a 70's sparkly white shirt with flared sleeves for $8, the most adorable sweater in the world from the 80's for $20, and a whole bookshelf full of vintage cameras (hopefully I can be the proud owner of one of those someday!).

As for basic thrifted clothing, a Fendi wallet for $5, my favorite leggings for $3, gorgeous flats for $5-10, and loads and loads of amazing t-shirts. :)

Okay, this thread inspired me to go thrifting today lol. I got a Jones New York jacket suit for $1.30. It's a little big on me but almost in excellent condition. I should get it altered. I also saw this beautiful lacy wedding dress for $244.99

My mother kept a good deal of her clothes from the 80's & 90's-VINTAGE GOLD. Tonnes of the pieces are one offs, or custom made, which is awesome. She has a really eclectic style, so whilst 80's might inspire visions of huge puffs and too much gaudy lace, my mum managed to avoid MOST of that (Though there are some pretty wicked shoulder pads here and there). My favourite vintage find however, is probably a cream silk blouse i found in a box in my shed. It is so beautifully made, and was accompanied by a patterned boho skirt that shows it's age with the label reading, "MADE IN WEST GERMANY". sigh. I love thrift shopping too!
