Thriftanista Social Club (TSC) Spotlight + Link-Up Party

I'm starting a new series and link up as of today. I thought it would be a good way for all of us to show off some of our favorite finds. You don't have to be a blogger, just a lover of fabulous treasure to be in the spotlight. Your find doesn't have to be thrifted either but it does have to be a good thrifty deal.

If you would like to participate, email me with answers to the below questions, a picture of your find, and a picture of you or your button.

Also, I'm adding a link-up! Link to a post you think we'd all enjoy.
Please link back to this blog if you plan to participate.

Sound good?
Since this is the first spotlight, I will kick it off.



Name or Alias
Troy

What makes you a Thriftanista?
I spend a lot of time in thrift stores. I love to hunt for good deals and I like to be fashionable on a budget.


What did you find?
brand new in the box Ferragamo flats

How much was it?
$2. The retail price was $230!

What makes it special?
While Ferragamo's aren't my personal style, I know they are loved by many so I was pleased to sell them to one lucky eBayer. They were also in pristine condition which is pretty amazing considering the condition of everything else at the sale.

Where did you find it?
Church rummage sale. This was my first time going to a church rummage sale. I had sifted through all of the piles a few times before spotting the shoes. I heard the thrift angels sing.

Where can we see more of your fabulous treasures?
I blog, tweet, facebook, and instagram my finds so look for me at:
