It has been SUCH a rainy week! The kind of rain where you don’t even want to get out of the car because you’re just gonna’ get soaked. That being said, I was bummed because I was really looking forward to doing some Thrifting while I was in Farmington, but the rain washed out my plans.
I just wanted to get home. However, just down the road from “home” is one of my favorite local thrift stores (having received Honorable Mentions in previous posts) The Economic Ministry.
Now the rain, as I’ve mentioned, was poo-ing on my day since I wanted to shop, but didn’t. I was thinking I could stop at The Ministry, but I ALWAYS go there, and I was feeling kind of BORED with that, and then…THEN, I remembered the adorable boots that the neighbor girl had on….! Where do you think she scored those babies?! Yup. The Ministry. So, I figured, what the hell…Just a QUICK stop…a Quick browse…You never know. Doris and the Girls working there are always putting out new merchandise and I mean, Always. So, I did. And Voila! Instant Mood Enhancement…Rain Clouds over my head- Be Gone!
I was able to find my son a totally cool Tony Hawk t-shirt (.25), my daughter an adorable one shoulder summer t-shirt from Gymboree (.25), and for myself, a great Danskin athletic shirt in bright red (easy to see while riding my horse) Bonus: it had those cool thumb hooks (love those…wonder if they have a name?)($1.50) also, a blue Ralph Lauren t-shirt with orange polo pony applique (another huge equestrian fave) ($1.00) AND a sweater ($2.00) for my current favorite Thrift Craft : Leg Warmers to wear under tall boots.( Note: This can be found on Pinterest. And I will add it here as well. Just as soon as I figure out how to do that..:/ LOL)
OH! Here it is!
My total cost = $5.00 AND I was there for maybe, 10-15 minutes tops AND never had to wait in line OR pay for shipping.
Thrifting! Save Time – Save Money
