Giving Thanks for Thrift Scores

It’s Thanksgiving weekend up here in old Canada, and this year I’m thankful for lots of things, but who isn’t? Today specifically, I’m giving thanks for the glorious thrift finds I scored on this gut-busting, turkey-coma of a weekend. All of these things I picked up at Frenchy’s on my way to the family homestead. Let’s start with jackets. I finally found a camel coat! It shows no signs of wear, so right away I was pumped. I’ve stopped buying things that look worn because, what’s the point? atmosphere beige camel coat (Atmosphere jacket: $7.00) 

Next, I found this Lucky Brand denim faux fur(?) lined jacket. I am crazy over this thing. I had one in high school that wasn’t as nice, not to a mention the tag reads “too tough to die”. How can you not love clothing  with this much attitude? I am all set for my 70’s winter look. lucky brand dungaree denium faux fur lined  jacket   lucky brand dungaree denium faux fur lined  jacket   (Lucky Brand denim: $7.00) 

Anyone who knows me, or at least reads this blog, knows I love the brand Free People. Granted, they often make hideous clothing, at least when a model isn’t wearing it. Sometimes I gotta pass it up, or I buy it and look horrible, but this thrift trip I found a couple things that aren’t that bad! free people light grey sweater This sweater I actually bought in a different colour scheme from a boutique downtown last year. I think I like the grey/red combo better. free people grey and red print sweater  (Free People sweaters: $4.50 each)

rabit fur ear flap winter hatAlthough these ear flap hats are really cute, they look horrible on me. I wasn’t going to pick this up, but it’s real fur, and I figure it would be good for winter camping, or any other outdoor activities I get up to this coming cold season. For $2.50 I think I will be happy I bought it. Burberry eye glasses case  Burberry eye glasses caseLastly, something else I don’t need. A Burberry glasses case. Right now I’m housing my precious Ray Bans in there since the case for them is soft. It’s only a matter of time before I throw them in my work tote and they get smashed. Hopefully, this hard case will avoid the whole made up situation.

 (Burberry case: .75).

That’s it, that’s my long weekend thrift trip. I was looking for simple, solid colour fall/winter pieces, but of course I’m not going to pass up cute things along the way. All in all, I’d say I did alright with this haul!
