December finds

Here’s what I got at my Salvation Army Family Store this month for around $25.
Pewter plate
Silver Tray
$4.99
I see a craft project with this tray.  Not sure what it will be yet, but it may include some chalkboard paint!!
Yellow sweater
J Crew Sweater
$2.99
Mustard is a hot color right now and this is the first of two mustard items I picked up this month at my local Salvation Army Family Thrift Store.  I love this sweater and can’t wait to pair it with some skinny jeans, boots, and a plaid shirt or scarf.  J Crew is a brand I absolutely love but I just can’t afford to pay around $70 for a sweater!!
PD&C
NWT Boys Shirt
$1.99
This shirt retails for $42.  There would be NO way I would pay that for this shirt.  I was super excited for finding it 90% off!!  Can’t wait for my son to wear this shirt with his Sperrys and some khaki shorts this summer.
Plaid scarf
Vintage Wool Scarf
$2.99
I’ve been drooling over all the plaid scarves I’ve been seeing in stores and online this fall.  I knew I could find one at my local Salvation Army Family Thrift if I just kept my eyes open!!  This is a vintage which is a double score for me!!
Gymboree outfilt
NWT Gymboree Set
$1.99 each piece
I spotted the NWT sweater first.  This sweater is absolutely adorable and retails for $34.50!!  I knew this sweater would probably been purchased with a skirt or pants to match, so I slowly made my way down the aisles and found these red velvet pants from Gymboree in the same size, so I snagged them too!!
Floral shirt
NWT Eddie Bauer Blouse
$2.49 (1/2 price tag)
I LOVE this top!!  The mix of colors is amazing – aqua, mustard, black, cream, and gray!!  I will be wearing this during the winter months with a cardigan and then in the spring and summer with a fun skirt or capris.  Eddie Bauer is one of my favorite stores and I love getting their catalogs, but a $39.99 blouse is just not in the budget!!
Hpotter scarf
Hogwarts Scarf
$1.99
My three boys love Harry Potter and we’ve been on the lookout for something Harry like for awhile.  This Gryffindor scarf was a hit when the boys pulled it out of the bag.
Loft AT
Ann Taylor Skinnies
$3.99
Here is my second mustard item!!  I’ve been trying to find a pair of skinnies in olive, burgundy, or mustard for awhile.  Online these would have retailed for around $60!!  They really don’t look or feel worn.  I will be pairing these with sweaters, boots, and my plaid scarf this winter and with ballet flats and my Eddie Bauer blouse this spring and summer!!
Be Thrifty!!

About Me: I’m Nikki!!  I’ve been married to Tommy for 17 years.  I’m a stay-at-home-mom of four, who loves a good bargain.  I love thrifting for ANYTHING!  From an early age, thrifting was a way of life for me.  My family is fashionably clothed and my home comfortably furnished, with second hand finds.  I am always scouting out Craigslist, thrift stores, garage sales, and dumpsters for goodies!!  I find more joy out of finding an awesome used item, than when I find a retail sale.  I’m not afraid to revamp an outdated outfit, think outside the box, or tackle a renovation project with my treasures.
