Today Nate and I decided to have a romantic date at our local thrift shop. Though thrift shopping has become a popular conquest to get that vintage look, the task at hand is a lot harder than it is made out to be. Many a time I have left a thrift shop empty handed – people threw this stuff out for a reason. Or, I have run into shops that price their goods way too high for what they are worth. I am a very particular shopper – a very stubborn bargain shopper. Too picky for my own good – but today’s little adventure turned out great. Here are our spoils:
For a grand total of…$7!
Immediately upon walking in the store, I spotted these shoes for Nate – classy eh? $5.
This was also my doing – probably the first time I have ever found a bow tie in a thrift shop. I always have a difficult time shopping for a simple, self-tie bow tie, thrift shop or not. $1
And finally, Nate magically found me a polaroid camera. How he did, I don’t know. But I love it. It just needs film and batteries – I can’t wait to actually start using it 🙂 $1.
And that is all! A successful thrift shopping experience 🙂
