Bought 2 pairs of capris, a pair of shorts, an Anne Taylor tee, a vest (new with tags) a denim skirt and a tank top at my favorite thrift store this week.. When I got to the register they told me I had a credit (they keep track of purchases and you get a percentage back). My total bill was less than $7.

I love thrift and consignment stores! I have been compiling an almost entirely new wardrobe for an upcoming 35 day cruise(s). I started with about 6 pieces that I had in the neutral colour palette I chose (brown, beige, cream, tan and white with coral as a pop colour) and have been adding found pieces over the last few months. The photo attached shows my "rack" of clothes that are waiting for the suitcase to come out. Total cost: approximately $300 with most of the finds being designer labels, some with price tags still on them. Not too shabby!!

Loosy, you did well. That must be an awesome store! Is it consignment or thrift? I volunteer in a thrift store but we don't get that many really good brand names. Live in Lower Mainland.
Have fun on your cruise!

Two are consignment and there are actually 2 really good thrift stores. It's also about the "finding". I enjoy looking around.
