I decided to venture out to a new thrift store and see what goodies could be found. I can find needles in haystacks no matter where I am so I had no reservations about what I would find at a new store – I was mainly looking for a change of pace.
I visited Goodwill in Old Strathcona, Edmonton. It’s a very small store as compared to the large stores that I am used to but for a small store, it packs a good punch. What I was most interested to learn is that some stuff is priced individually and some has a set price, for example all sweaters $7. This makes some items priced possibly higher than what I would pay at other thrift stores but also helps regulate the cost that I would usually pay at another thrift store.
So here’s what I spotted:
And here’s what I purchased:
Top Shop sweater $7. I love this over sized sweater, I had been looking for one for years that didn’t make my petite figure look like I was wearing something too big for me. Some of the studs have fallen off the sweater and I normally don’t buy things that require fixing but because they are silver, I could paint over the plastic molds with nail polish and/or a silver sharpie and it looks as good as new!
I will definitely be back and will be checking out other Goodwill locations!
Until the next thrift!
