Thrifty Thursday

Hey, It's Thrifty Thursday over at Bloggeritaville and I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to shamelessly flaunt last Saturdays garage sale finds. I spent $35.00 on Saturday. I know that this does not sound thrifty considering that I was at various garage sales, but wait until you see what I got...:):)!!!
Adorable desk set for my half pints room.


Two super nice, hardly worn pant suits.




And,...a cute little blouse that matches them both really well.

Plus, the clothes were all some of my favorite but seldom (if ever) purchased labels. The biggest bonus is that high end clothes run 'huge' so that the labels read really small sizes. Even if the sizes are laughably untrue to what I usually purchase, it is fun to feel like 'a little waif person'. Happy times!!!

Good for you Holly, what finds! Lovely things indeed1
I am going on vacation to Prague soon and although that city is filled with historical buildings and great sights, all I look forward to is visiting flea markets and thrift stores.;)))

WOW! You got some amazing deals on the clothes. I LOVE the outfits, so cute and styling and sheek! LOVE those. You can dress up or down. Lucky you!
And the desk, charming. That is an heirloom piece. I LOVE that!
Lucky you! Great finds!

That desk is fabulous! I bet your daughter is so proud and feels so grown up!

LOVE THE DESK SET!! And I'll tell you , it's almost worth the money just to see those sizes on the tags! I bought an Ann Taylor skirt and shirt for a wedding a couple of years ago...I just love the fact that the "sizes" are so much "Smaller" than my normal! Ha!

Great finds! (I bet you find some great yard sales around Palm Springs, huh? Or are they too rich to care?)

Love that desk....love it! Your little girl is going to really enjoy it.

Aren't the small size tags so nice. I always enjoy slipping into a 3 when my normal size is in the double digits LOL

I don't think I EVER wore a size 4. Nope, that isn't true - - - I KNOW I never wore a size 4. The smallest "adult" size I ever had was an 8, which is what my mom put me into when I outgrew "girls" sizes.

So, will it hurt your feelings terribly if I tell you I HATE you if you can wear size 4??? Oh I kid - - - I don't hate you, I'm just way jealous!!!

Wow! You scored...ESPECIALLY with that yummy desk! Love the clothing, too. = )

I guess it's a good thing I couldn't figure out anywhere to put that ADORABLY cute desk and I'm too chubby to fit into those cute outfits... or we might've had some serious yard sale war going on... I think this week it's only fair if I get first pick :) :) :)

Jane said...
