Thrift Store Thursday

I haven't done one of these in a long time, but I hit the jackpot today so I felt like showing off.
I have a very good consignment store close by which sells clothing and household items at reasonable prices.  Next door to it is a much smaller room that they call their outlet.
All clothing, shoes, jewelry, and purses are $1 each.  Household and decor prices vary.

Sometimes I'll stop in and find nothing, sometimes one or two things.  A few times, like today, I've had much better luck.  Here's what I got:

For me, a pair of Loft trouser jeans and a pair of Anne Klein stretch wool dress pants.




 From the Gap, a casual button-down shirt for Craig, and a black blazer for me.




For Firstborn, an Old Navy fleece pullover and a pair of sweatpants.




A heavy winter coat from The Children's Place for Skippy.




And just because I liked them, two vintage industrial weaving spools ($1.75 ea).




Total:  $11 and change.

Good stuff! I really love the spools :)
I've been having a lot of luck at the thrift lately, too...but the prices weren't as great as yours!

I LOVE those spools!!! Wow!!!! What great finds. :) I found an awesome green plastic (looks like glass!) vintage footed bowl for $0.25 the other day at Salvation Army!

What an awesome trip to the thrift store! I can't believe you got all that for less than $12. I just love those spools--you will show us what you did with them, won't you?

Have a great weekend!
