Fab Finds at the Thrift Store

I've recently started going back to second hand/thrift stores again, but now with a little more experience under my belt.  I would like to think that I'm a little bit more picky now than when I was in high school when it comes to thrifting.  So far these have been my haul for three different trips:

Trip 1
Silk scarf / Lord & Taylor skirt
Silk blouse / Leather clutch and handbag

Trip 2
Enya & B52's CDs / Silk cream blouse
Royal purple skirt / Nut dish with silver handle (used for my jewelry)

Trip 3: I saved the best for last.  My fab find from my latest thrift store trip; blush colored Zara pumps with two inch heels.  Please feel my pain and disappointment when I tell you that they were a whole size too small!  Darn!  I really didn't want to let them go.  I walked around the store holding them.  Up and down the aisle contemplating.  Who would appreciate this treasure??  After a quick text to my best friend Latrina, these babies will be going home to her in a few days!!

Getting something that would usually costs way more and shelling out less than ten dollars is definitely thrilling.  Plus, certain days are 50 percent off.  Hello?? Score!  Not going more than once a week can get tricky because who knows what will be at the store on a certain day, right?  Do you buy second-hand?  What are your favorite stores?  What is your favorite thrift find?

XOXO

Thanks Lydia! I think I did pretty well. So far the green blouse is my favorite find. They're from three different trips, and three different stores. Any good spots by your area?
