Tea For One.

Hello hello!

Today I actually have some new thrifting finds to share! It’s been awhile since I have posted about anything thrifty. About time I change that.

So, first up is a lovely corduroy jacket I got for $6. It’s originally from the Gap, and I love that the inside lining is a pretty fabric!

Next I have a mini upcycle. I was super stoked to find this 1990 Reds World Series sweater for only $1! The only problem was it was an extra large and swallowed me… It was simple enough to take in the sleeves and the sides a bit though!

My final find I have to share with you I one that I am very pleased to have found! I have begun a recent obsession with loose leaf tea. Its fantastic. (My favorite place to buy it is from here) Anyways, this find was perfect timing. It’s a ‘Tea for One’ set! The set is complete with a mug, a little teapot, and an infuser for loose leaf. I only paid $4 for this set, and I was very excited when I looked it up online and found that its $32 here!
I must say this little set gets a ton of use!

Well that is all of my current thrifting finds worth mentioning! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

New Stuff!

Hello everyone!

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but my camera USB cable went MIA for about two weeks and I just now have found it! (it was under the sofa go figure). So anyways, I promised I would take my roommate/best friend to my favorite Cincinnati thrift stores over Christmas break, and a few days ago we finally made the trip.

I took her to Valley Thrift Store and also the Goodwill right next to it. Here are my finds for the day!

Travel Case: $2
This little number is some sort of hair straightener case. I really love the fringe it has going on and I figured it would be nice for transporting my straightener and makeup!

Wilsons Leather Jacket: $8
I know I know, another leather jacket… what can I say, I’m a collector. This one is Wilsons like my purple one and I really wanted one that was not a blazer style.

Scarf: $2
I found this cute yellow and grey scarf at Goodwill. I know I’ve also got tons of ‘decorative’ scarves, but as I said before, I’m a collector. I can’t help it. :]

Well, that sums up my most current finds. My friend also bought a teal blueish colored Wilson’s leather jacket. I wish I had gotten a picture of it. But that is all for now!

Purple Jacket


So I have a new thrifting post for you today! My roommate and I were picking through things at Goodwill the other day and I came across this jacket. It’s Wilsons Leather and is a purple suede material. The inside is a floral print which I love, and the edges are lined with a sort of velvet material. I could go without that, but it’s not a deal breaker. Anyways, the jacket was supposed to be about $6, but was on sale for half off! When I took it to check out, the cashier even decided to count it as a blazer instead of a jacket, so I ended up getting it for a grand total of $2.50! Not bad right? :]

Sorry you can’t see it very well in the picture. I have no excuse… Well that’s about all I have to say. Make sure to check out my Etsy shop!

I know I’m Slacking…

Well hello there. Long time no posts I know. I am truly sorry and I have missed you! School has been taking up my time [as it should] and, okay I admit it, I have been watching ridiculous amounts of Lost on Netflix… you know, the show from a few years back where people were stranded on a crazy island? But don’t worry. I’m on the final season so it won’t be taking my time for much longer.

Anyways, I am posting today to update you on some of my thrifting finds from the past month or so. Now I like to thrift a lot… so yes I do have a lot of items I have found since my last post. I suppose I shall just tell you about the ones I was most excited about. :]

First off, I had been looking for some ankle boots or oxfords or both for a bit of time, and I was really excited to find this pair at Goodwill one day! They need broken in a bit, but for $6 I can deal!

Another find that I was pleased with is this small leather shoulder bag. I was looking at a few of them trying to decide which one I liked better when this particular one caught my eye. The little fringe detail on the front instantly sold it to me over the other two I was deciding between. Plus it was cheaper. Only $4. :]

My final find that I feel the need to tell you about is my new leather jacket! I’ve been wanting one since they have appeared in just about every store this fall, but I was determined not to spend as much as those would cost. I found this one at my favorite thrift store ever, Valley Thrift Store in Fairfield, OH. It’s 100% leather and my favorite leather color. I looked it up online, and the same jacket can be bought off ebay for about $65. How much did I pay? $7. Yep. :]

Well that pretty much brings you up to date with my thrifting. There are a few things that I have also found which you will be hearing about later on. Things that I found and am currently working on altering and upcycling to suite my own taste, and I’m very excited to show you the finished products as soon as they’re completed!

Until then, you should do yourself a favor and check out my Etsy Shop!
