Something kind of epic happened here in Chicago thrift world last week. Salvation Army had a 3 day (it was 2 but they extended it) .87 per pound sale. Holllerrrr! I've drooled over countless post about NYC's Housing Works by the pound sales. I've scoured "the Internets" looking for such a local sale. The closets I've ever found is in Wisconsin.
Finally it came to be.
I am certain I had something to do with it. Law of attraction. Ask. Believe. Receive. All that!
I only went one of the days. The schedule went crazy in a good way so I couldn't make all 3 days.
My total "weightage" was 5 pounds (10 items) and the cost was just under $5 with tax. Let me say that again. $5!!!!! I gave the cashier a $5 and she gave me change back.
What I Thrifted
Gretchen Scott silk dress
two pair of AG jeans

Vintage a-line striped skirt
Calvin Klein zebra print tunic
Donna Morgan dress

vintage silk Talbot's blazer
This is my favorite item!
Vintage striped dress and a wide purple belt
What I Saw
This was not a sale for the faint of heart. It was hot, dirty and grimy.
Just look at this panoramic shot. Don't you just want to dive in? No? Just me?
V looks like Flat Stanley!
Surprisingly I only saw one person inside a box. She was a #stonecold #hardcore thrifter.
Did someone lose a Manolo?
Are there by the pound sales in your area?
Did you do any thrifting over the weekend?
