For this month’s thrift, my mom joined me! It was only her second time at Value Village since I first introduced her to the store about five years ago. My mom is essentially how I got started in the preloved lifestyle as I grew up spending afternoons with her in second hand consignment stores. She wasn’t much into thrifting though until I brought her with me and I remember her commenting that she was impressed by what a nice store my Value Village was (Whyte Ave, Edmonton).
Here’s what I spotted:
Soia & Kyo jacket $6! This was my second Soia & Kyo jacket that I had spotted at Value Village as I just seen one last month but this one was in need of some TLC (dirty, buttons missing) hence the price.
Rachel Roy dress $18. Ok so this is a very sought after designer, hence the higher price but it’s missing the slip that goes underneath so that you’re not wearing a see-through dress! This one needs a price adjustment.
And now for what I purchased, actually let’s start with what my mom purchased.
Matt & Nat purse $5. I had seen Matt & Nat purses at Value Village before but they were all priced $20-$40! This one caught my eye as my mom was interested in another purse but I convinced her to get this one as it was a better brand, condition and resale value.
Rudsak purse $8. Then I also spotted this Rudsak purse which had three spacious compartments and was a great purchase because these purses are $200-$300! I’m pretty sure she won’t go thrifting without me next time so I can spot all these lucrative brands for her!
Burberry scarf $7!!! My mom picked out this scarf, I was expecting it to be fake but then when she showed me that it had a very convincing tag, I encouraged her to purchase it no matter what. Then she gifted it to me! Thanks mom! I researched many posts to verify it’s authenticity and have not come across anything that leads me to believe it’s fake!
And now for what I purchased:
It was a pretty lucrative thrift shop for both my mom and I, can’t wait to take her again!
I’d also like to give a shout out to The Spirited Thrifter who mentioned me in her podcast interview as one of her favourite blogs! Was definetely great to hear how appreciated my posts are from another fellow thrifter! Give it a listen here.
Thanks for reading! Until the next thrift!
