Home for the holidays :)

A thrifty blog shouldn't look shabby! So, to spice things up, here are some fun pictures of our latest finds. And the best part for these besties: Sarah Jane's "home" for the holidays and we can thrift together for the first time since we started this in September! : D

Just a nice, basic GAP T-shirt. Can't get enough GAP!! Especially not for $2.99!

Henry can't keep his paws off of good deals either. ;) What you can't see in this pic is the cute, rope-like detailing along the bust and necklines. SalVal find for $2.99...and it's Ann Taylor!
This long sweater has the label torn out, but it is soo warm, soft, and light that I think it's cashmere! SalVal for $4.00!
The pants are actually a chocolate corduroy, and are from The Limited originally. Super warm, which I need for winter.
Only $4.99 at the Salvation Army :)  Btw, as always, both pieces were in perfect condition.

Got this super velvet coat at Salvation Army for $24.99. The tag was ripped out though, so I
don't know the brand :(

Franco Sarto large purse/carry-on sized bag. Totally like-new condition!!! Salvation Army for $5.99.

My (Sarah Jane's) beauteous sister Rebekah got this cute and warm BMoss sweater for $4.00 at Salvation Army.

Rebekah also got this vintage 80's cashmere sweater for $2.50 at SalVal.

My (Sarah Jane) brother Ben got himself a vintage sweater for $4.00 at SalVal.

Found this wallet (in unused condition!) made of Eel skin at Salvation Army!!

Wet Seal hot pink pumps, $7.99 at Salvation Army.

My (Sarah Jane) Mom even found a cute new sweater (Relativity brand) for $4.99 at SalVal.

Fun little Christmas find. These gold nesting boxes (perfect for gift giving OR decorating!) were $0.49 for all four at SalVal.

We are having so much fun being together for the holidays, not to mention winning over family members to the idea of shopping at thrift stores!

Black Friday at the thrift store!

This Black Friday Salvation Army had a 50% off sale. Yay! People were literally leaving the store with arms and carts full of huge bags of clothing and what-not. I (Sarah Jane) also braved it and did a little shopping myself. Got a few sweet deals, and here are the pictures to prove it. The tag says the original price, but I paid half that because of the sale.
Tulle brand long sweater, tags still on, paid $1.75.

Gap brand super soft striped sweater, $1.50

Gap brand jeans (these go for at least $50 new, by the way) $1.75.

New York and Company wool dress coat, $7.50. This was my best find.

Gap brand black cardigan, $1.50.

Forever 21 super cute shirt- $1.50
No label shirt- $1.50.

By the way, any spots seen in pictures on the clothes are from my camera, the clothes themselves are in very good condition.
