What A Deal!

I LOVE finding a good deal. My favorite venues are thrift stores, yard sales and auctions. Below are some items that I've purchased from said venues and some details about each one. Also, I have in the past purchased items of clothing, put them into outfits, and sold them on eBay for a profit...this is why I have a manikin. (I'm sure you were wondering)

This skirt is a size 2P and is from Ann Taylor Loft. I paid $1 for it at a yard-sale

 The jacket is a size 12P Anne Klein and the Cotton shirt underneath is a 10P Charter Club. I paid $1 for each at the thrift store

 I love this jacket and wish it was my size. It is size 4 from Apt. 9 and I splurged and paid $2.50 for it.

I purchased these vases at an auction, $2.00 each.

This vase was originally from Pier 1 but I got it at an auction for $2. It's sucha beautiful purple.

This is a signed print of Burton Parish church, still in the original wrapper and with a certificate of authenticity and explanaiton on the back. Got it at a thrift store for $.50!!

So, I hope you're inspired to get out there and find some good deals.  Now for the giveaway!!!
