I reasoned out why to not spend the $1.50 on this woven leather top ….
“Really? I don’t think my girls will even wear this … How would you style it?”
When I got home and had a hard time even finding a picture to compare or find value, I realized it was actually a quite amazing top, with hours and hours of craftsmanship, that starts at $100’s and goes into the $1000’s …. gulp, I did NOT buy this.
OK, yes, you heard me right … I left this top there 🙁
Jen and I share all types of thrift store finds with you and we mean it that we LEAVE most of it for you to find!
Here is a practical item that we did end up getting, a JCREW, perfect fit shirt. $78 retail vs $1.75 thrift
Another practical item that will get lots of use in my home, Patagonia fleece vest. These currently retail for $99 and we found this at Family Thrift Outlet store for $1.50.
Here are a few tips on shopping at the Family Thrift OUTLET. (the Thrift OUTLET store is not the same as the Thrift Store, click on link below for locations)
#1 This is the OUTLET store, this is not a regular Family Thrift Store. This is the clearance store for items that did not sell in the Family Thrift Store(s).
#2 Another tip is that if you go to the OUTLET store, disregard the prices on the items. Regardless of what the price tag says, everything in the store is the price of the day ($1.75, $1.50, etc.). The price tags may be confusing your first time there…just ignore them!
#3 NO Dressing rooms or mirrors.
#4 Examine the item very carefully, there are no returns!
