~I ventured into a thrift store today after 2 1/2 months of staying away. I bought some books and fabric for $11 with my pocket money but the real deal was the jeans. I picked up 2 pairs of flawless, new-looking jeans by GAP and Tahari. I bought a pair of Tahari jeans at Marshall's last year and paid $40 for them. Most I've ever paid for jeans, but they fit fantastic and the original price was $200! Can you believe that? How much are GAP jeans, $40-$60? So for $7.88 I got 2 new pair of jeans(new=$250!:thud:) and a green silk top. Woooo-Hooooo!~

I never seem to have that kind of luck when it comes to clothes, but I do need to start looking for something appropriate for a wedding or funeral. All I have at this point is jeans and flannel shirts.

Wow you did get a great deal, I got a pair of Hollister jeans for $4, which I thought was great but you sure did get a better deal. :)

OK. I've decided that the Goodwill here is cheating. They don't have sales and the prices here are NOTHING like you guys get. Their jeans are 7.99 (which, don't get me wrong is not bad, but you never get brands like you guys do, just old Walmart brands and Chic jeans from the 80s).

All women's tops (including just plain t-shirt types) are 5.99. But on the bright side, you can't beat the prices on their purses. I bought a green Liz Claiborne leather purse just exactly like one I had seen at Macys for 5.99. The Macy's price was over 50.

And I got a pair of new tommy hilfiger shoes for 1$

Normaly I never buy used shoes but these looked like they have never been woren so I thought for 1$ I woud take the risk.

I love my yard sales around here too. I find if we go to the middle class house or new suburbs I find lots of brand name clothes cheap usually under $2.00.
