  • I have a 4 way tie. The first thing I found was a gorgeous 'little black dress' to wear to my hubby's family member's wedding. They're the kind of people that dress to impress so I was super nervous and thought there was no way I'd find something and then there it was! I found that for $5!
    Next thing I found was a set of Wiggles DVD's for my daughter. We'd never seen them before but now they are her absolute favorite! I think those were 1 or 2 bucks a piece.
    Next was an original storybook from The Dark Crystal and last was the original storybook from The Labyrinth. Both books were bought for less than a dollar and both were vintage 1980's.
    It's just amazing what some people get rid of! Like they say, one's person's trash is another person's treasure!

  • I LOVE getting old clothes at thrift stores. I'm losing weight so I don't want to go out and buy a new costly wardrobe if I am just going to need new ones in a few months anyway.

  • Gosh, I don't have an answer for this yet! But we just got a Goodwill in our town, and I am hoping to find some really good deals. A girlfriend of mine did find some Citizens of Humanity jeans (really expensive brand....IMO) for $5 at our new Goodwill....I am hoping to find something along those lines...ha ha! :)

  • A couple years ago I found a beautiful wooden patio set with the couch and chair for $12.00! We painted it, bought new cushions for the couch part..the chairs cushions were perfect and it is a very nice set and we still use it just about every day!

  • I buy there so often that I cannot think of just one "good buy." Everything I have bought at all the various thrift stores have been wonderful!
    I will say, though, that I get better bargains at yard sales.
