Frugal Fridays - Thrift stores
I LOVE thrift stores!
I mostly buy fabric at thrift stores. I find brand new fabric. I have gotten some really good deals.
Check out my finds here, here, here and here!
This quilt is made completely from fabric I got at value Village. Total cost of fabric is approx. $13.
When my son was younger I was able to get him clothing in good condition - but now that he is older, not so much.
My sister buys most of her wardrobe at thrift stores. She often finds item with tags still attached for only a few dollars. She is able to update her wardrobe each fall and spring due to the savings.
Even if we don't find a good deal at a thrift store, we always have fun checking out all the stuff and saying "wow didn't Mom have one of those?" or "I remember that!"
It's also a great place to buy books.
So if you haven't recently, go check out your local thrift store! :)
