I really thought I would miss the thrift stores where I lived before but I don’t at all! The choices here are amazing too. It turns out that the Salvation Army AND Value Village are both walking distance from my loft!
I walked by the Salvation Army Thrift Store today and noticed a sale: Buy any 4 pieces of clothing for $15 (no tax). I haven’t done that much clothes shopping since I moved here but I also don’t have that sense of urgency like I did before. I am not deprived of good fashion here, so I can always find anything I want anytime. 🙂
Here are my 4 pieces for $15!
This is a dress by Costa Blanca. A lovely burnt orange with pleats on top. Very flowy and feminine.
Next, is a beautiful black pleated dress by H&M. This one can be worn at the office and dinner, very versatile. Love it.
The following is a voluminous stripped skirt, no name on it! Could be vintage, hard to tell. Stripes are in again for spring/summer, so I jumped on this one.
Lastly is a black dress from Vero Moda. I wish you could see the detailing more. It still had the tags on and is worth 35€ ($46Cdn). I don’t need another black dress but I am willing to let go of another one I own so I can keep this one. 🙂 Yep, it’s no secret that I love black dresses. Everyone looks good in them and they are so easy to style.
Salvation Army also gave me a discount card and each time I go in and purchase something, they stamp it and I get 10% off my purchase with $1 donation. After my card is full, I get 50% off my entire purchase. If you live in Ontario, they have coupons on their website that you can print out as well.
I will be visiting Value Village as soon as I clear out my existing clothing stash, I am doing it this weekend and I have a hunch a lot of my clothing will be donated. As I’ve said before, new life, new or new-to-me clothing!
