I don’t have any pics of them, but my Mom and I have been checking thrift stores for old frames.  I am going to use the spray can chalk to make chalk board signs for the wedding.

I’ve gotten lots of stuff, both for the wedding and for me: clothes, kitchen stuff, books, picture frames, pins/brooches, purses, and fur/faux fur coats for my wedding.

I’m obsessed with thrifting.

Most recently, I found BRAND NEW, never worn before still in the box $125 Hunter rainboots in my size for… wait for it…. $35. I’ve been wanting these boots for about a year but never pulled the trigger because how often does one wear rain boots and they were pricey.

I also found a in-season bridal gown for $25.

I heart Goodwill so hard!

One of my favorite sites is http://www.centsationalgirl.com- she does amazing stuff with thrifted furniture.

I found this unaltered Sottero and Midgeley wedding gown at a Salvation Army store, in my size. I will be wearing it for my May wedding!

It retailed for around $1700. I paid…$40.

Wow!! That’s some NICE stuff!

The only thing/s I have bought at thrift stores are books. I find that a lot of the stuff there is actually overpriced for the condition it is in. That is at least the case here in the area where I live. I’ve visted 4-5 stores in this area and they are all the same. I.e. over priced.

For example, a BRAND NEW basket is at the dollar store for a $1. (This dollar store is in fact right next to this thrift store!) And this same basket that someone gave to the thrift store is also a $1. Wtf!? it’s already been ‘used’ and it is not in a ‘new’ condition either.

When I was in the States, I did find value in items from the thrift stores. Not in Canada, I don’t.
