I know I promised photos of all the treasures I picked up at the Salvation Army this past week. Sorry I haven't gotten around to it yet. It's taken me a couple of days to get it all organized, much less take photos. I'm super excited about all the things I found that are going up for sale in the store. I have enough stock for several weeks worth of sales. Let's put it this way - I had to call my boyfriend to come and pick me up because I couldn't carry all of my bags back onto the bus.
I've never had that kind of luck at the thrift store before. I'm not sure what was going on but it seemed as if several old ladies had gotten together and cleaned out their closets. Every aisle was loaded with little ruffled blouses and 60's house dresses. Most of the clothes had name tags on the collars. Names like Agnes and Helen, Margaret and Sophie. I think at one point I had Mildred Bidgood's entire wardrobe in my cart. And that's not all! I also found tons of treasures from the 80's and early 90's. Cute little flowered sundresses and summery sandals as well as fitted acid washed skirts and stretchy mini dresses. Here are a few highlights (all of which will end up in the store):
70's & 80's mini skirts & wrap skirts, 70's & 80's blouses
ethnic print dresses, 70's sundresses
80's & 90's cotton dresses, secretary style ruffle blouses
70's & 80's secretary style dresses, 60's bags & shoes
And this is just the tip of the iceberg! Right now I don't even have enough hangers to hang all the clothes on my racks. All I know is the readers of SJV are going to be a well dressed crowd this summer!
