Hello, all of you blog readers and fellow good-deal finders! How has the month been treating you? I haven’t been busier in I don’t know how long, but I am about to the point where I can let out a big huge, sigh of relief because my summer break is just about here. I can taste it, everyone. But before we move on to June, let’s talk about what was thrifted for May.
Honestly, nothing. Nope, I have no new thrifted items of clothing, no yard sale finds to speak of, and not much of my thrifted wardrobe has even been worn this month. It’s is Me-Made-May after all. (Anyone tired of it yet?) But I do have a couple of things of the second-hand sort that get some very regular wear to tell you about for this month’s Thursday Thrift theme. In fact, as I started to think about it, I have several similar items to these that I have gotten used: Doc Martens and handbags.
Doc Marten shoes, I have quite a few of them. And bags, I may have even more of them. My guy has suggested to me a time or two that I lay off the bag purchases, which I considered, until I started finding them at yard sales. How can anyone say no to practically free bags?! The one you see in the picture only cost me a couple of bucks, and it has been my most recent bag of choice.
Now for the shoes, these I would say are currently my nicest pair of Docs and I like to wear them when I think I am dressing up some. I got them from ebay a few years back for about $20. How can a twenty dollar pair of Doc’s be turned down, I ask?! They cannot. They were slightly used, but really looked very much brand new to me. It was the deal of the year at the time, because they were a particular style that I had wanted for a very long time.
Yes, I have found a deal or two with these items. Handbags and shoes, both definitely things worth thrifting. What do you say? Any particular brands of either that you have found while out thrift shopping or yard saleing? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading. Feel free to add a link in the comments to your thrift inspired outfit & accessory posts. Until next month, happy thrifting!
