Be Thrifty and Shop Volunteers of America

Hello and welcome to the second of our not so weekly or creatively titled "Thrifty Thursday." This past weekend Stacey and I went thrift shopping at the Volunteers of America at 1824 West Henderson Road. It's in a strip mall near Upper Arlington so I was hopeful that we would score so sweet deals from the fashionable rich bitches of Upper Arlington (and I mean that in the nicest way). 

I'm lucky enough that I get to wear jeans to work most days so I was looking strictly for winter tops and the VOA delivered. 

Here's what I bought with styling by Stacey. I only let her shop with me and put together outfits for the sake of our readers looking for outfit ideas. It's all for you Amy (as far as I know, she's the only one reading this blog). 

flower patterned peasant top ($1.99)

Banana Republic striped v-neck sweater ($5.99)

Anne Taylor lambswool sweater ($5.99)

chartreuse pea coat ($5.99) 

Anne Taylor cowneck cashmere sweater ($19.99 BUT it still had the original $88.00 price tag)

blue and grey sweater ($4.99)

And here are the treasures Stacey found in the thrift store home department

Drinko ($5.99) - it's like plinko but with shot glases

three frames ($1.99 each) that will hold menus at an upcoming Oscars Awards party

And while I don't need a comforter, here's a cool zebra-print comforter for just $3.99! That's the price of a Big Mac. 

I ended the day with seven new outfits for just $55. Not bad for a Sunday. Happy thrifting!
