I love thrifting :)

I got a new dress today, that I love...and a really neat medical textbook from 1897...some of the 'science' back then was hilarious...

Cute dress!

I haven't been to a thrift store in a long time, but last time I was there I found 2 Ralph Lauren polos for $5 that looked brand new. :)

They had a book (from 1856) about the slave trade and the hostilities between the North and South yesterday...I wish I could have gotten that one as well...I love collecting old books :)

I have some of my papaw's old primary school books...


Quoting DragonInfinity:

 Brand new shoes for my ds (the original price tag said $35 and I got them for $2). A 1867 history/war book (I collect very old books). A couple of new shirts for me. And a new tableware set (6person set)

I love to go thrift book shopping. That is my main interest when going to thrift stores, if I find something else that catches my eye, I'll buy it. But, yeah, mostly old books!

 I go to thrift stores before I go anywhere else.  So most of our clothes and household items are from thrift stores.  My most recent favorite finds were a kids spiderman fold out couch thing ($2), and this really cute woman's dress, it was a very short dress, so I refashioned it into a long dress for my 6 yr old dd the dress was .50.

They didn't have a lot of old books, but what they had was really neat...I think I'm going back for more, haha...

I used to volunteer at a little church thrift store, and we'd get first choice.  I got a Dooney & Bourke purse for $4.99 and a Longaberger covered basket  (large, magazine rack sized) for $3.99

I bought tons of toys for my kids at thrift stores in San Antonio when they were younger. I found a Barbie dream house for $4, and a like new formal dress with shoes for less than $10.
