So I haven't had time to thrift lately, between my masters program and house projects we've been super busy. My mother at acorn hollow http://acornhollow.blogspot.com/ has found some wonderful items thrifting lately. This is why it pays to thrift..
Not all of my clothes are from thrift stores (most but not all!). My wonderful hubby bought me a fleece lined sweatshirt from L.L Bean. The sweatshirt is wonderful, snuggy, and very heavy. My hubster shelled out $49.95. My mom found almost the exact same sweatshirt (the only difference was the inside was a caramel color not white like mine) for $3.00 at the thrift store!
So if you are patient you can find almost anything at the thrift store!
