Want nice stuff cheap? Be willing to do minor repairs! Just got 2 pairs of summer shoes new/practically new for $2 each at a sale at the Salvation Army (they have sales, too) - Why were they there? - One pair of moccasins had to have the lace re-threaded and the other had tiny bleach spots, which I easily filled in with my all purpose marker set! (I have also gotten great deals on clothing with simple ripped seams, lacking buttons, etc.!)
I picked up a very nice, new pair of black pants at our local Goodwill store. When I got them home, I saw they had a brown spot, like a bleach spot, on one side. I used a black pen to blacken the spot, and now they look just fine. It's fun to find a bargain.
I love thrift stores. Even if I became extremely wealthy I think I'd still shop there. I went to Macy's last night and about died when I saw the prices of their sales clothing and left immediately to head to my closest Goodwill where I was able to buy 3 wonderful (still new with tags) tops. I also went to Sears which had some good sales going on but the Thrift Stores here are the Bomb! I get so many of my birthday and Christmas gifts at these stores and family are always commenting on how much I give and I smile knowing I barely spent anything but gave them so much enjoyment.
