Welcome back to another Thrifty Thursday. Last week we canvassed Melanie’s scores at McCart Thrift Center in Fort Worth. Angela (and I) tried on a decent amount of clothes there, but I struck out completely. Ange, however, did make one find. This beautiful blouse was only $1.41. One dollar and forty-one cents!!
While I was glad Angela found something lovely, we still needed to find her a dress that was “red carpet” worthy, for the program the girls are doing at Church in November. Today we headed out with that very specific idea in mind this time. Usually we are open to whatever great deals we can find, but we were on a mission.
The first thrift store we went to actually had a great selection of formal gowns. The down side was, their prices were a little more than we were looking to pay. Angela had $18.50 left of her monthly thrifting allowance/earnings from teaching her sister piano, and the least expensive dress we found that looked amazing was $24.99. Even though both of the dresses were from David’s Bridal, and we all know that David’s Bridal has gorgeous gowns with price tags that start at over $100, we were looking for a steal. So we headed to another store.
Angela tried on a total of 19 dresses at 4 thrift stores, and the one she picked we found at Goodwill on Camp Bowie in Fort Worth for $9.54. That we could do.
I have never worked that hard to find a dress, but it was sweet victory when Angela put it on and said yes to the dress.
So now I want to know: what is the best thrift store find you have made? Inquiring minds want to know. 😉
