Thrifted Treasure: By the pound sale at Salvation Army

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 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?
