    So I went to take a gander at our local thrift shop here in Whitecourt. This one is very organized and has a section called "Fab finds" which is all brand name stuff.

    I got myself a beautiful brand new condition Calvin Klein raincoat for $10. The lady told me it was originally a $300 coat. WOOOO!

    I also got a pair of lulu crops that retail for about 60 new for 5 bucks, two ten tree tank tops for $10 and a pair of brand new american eagle flip flops for $2.

    So pricing it out i probably saved 420 plus bucks!!!

    I did the VV thing too at 50% off. I haven't shopped there for over a year. I was in there for about 2 hours and got $250 worth of really nice brand name clothes for $125.00. (Ralph Lauren skirt, Denver Hays pants like knew, etc)

    Filled a small bag of kids clothes ( size 0-6) for $3 at my local missions thrift shop! They are trying to clear the kids clothes so had a promo on.

    Also picked up a top for myself for $6.

    :O Those items would have been quadruple the price at my local VV! Their pricing is absolutely insane. They often ask retail or plus/minus 10% of retail prices for poor quality clothes from stores like Walmart, Old Navy, etc.

    My only "rare" find was a pair of Birkenstocks at another VV far away from here. There was a 50% off sale the day prior and they forgot to take the signs down so I asked if I could have them for 50% off and they agreed. Got them for $6 and they were in practically brand new condition. Unfortunately they were one size too big and after wearing a few times I decided to sell them. Got $40 for them. A nice turn around and the next owner still got a steal of a deal on them too.
