for anyone who lives in the twin cities area, if you haven't been, you need to check out the downtown minneapolis Salvation Army. i love this place. not only is it one of the biggest thrift stores in the city, but they have a whole basement dedicated to new "as is" Target items...Target items that are minimally flawed, or items that designers sent to Target as "test" items, not meant to be sold. it's a gold mine...and i love it.
here are a few of the items i purchased this weekend:
sweater (so far, i see nothing wrong with it) $8
clogs (they say size 9, but they fit me and i'm an 8) $3
last, but not least, my new fave faux-fur coat (absolutely nothing wrong with it–this was a test sample) $10
i will definitely continue to shop here to see what new treasures i can find. have you been here? do you have a favorite thrift shop? what are some of your lucky thrift finds?
