My Large Thrifting Haul + Cost

>> Wednesday, January 10, 2018

So, changing gears from clearing all clutter out of my house . . . I had a very productive thrifting trip last weekend. I only visited two stores for these items. The first is the second-hand shop that's a mile from my house. The second is the children's thrift shop across town.

Total amount spent: $86, which -- admittedly -- sounds like a lot. But stay with me!

The mission: Ada's stretching to the max in her size 6 clothing lately, so I am slowly collecting sizes 7/8. Eloise needed some cold weather stuff and a few basics, since Ada and Eloise were born in different seasons.

Anyway, here's what I bought for each family member.

For Ada:

  • Matilda Jane Top NWOT ($6)
  • Lands End Rocket Sweatshirt ($4)
  • Johnnie b Boden boatneck ($1)
  • Garnet Hill Kids fleece ($4)
  • Johnnie b Boden dress ($4)
  • Children's Place jeans ($3)
  • Dr. Martens boots ($10)
  • Minnetonka moccasins ($5)
  • Hanna Andersson dress NWOT -- not pictured ($3)
TOTAL: $40

For Eloise:

  • Hanna Andersson fleece ($4)
  • Hanna Andersson pants ($1)
  • Okie Dokie shirt ($2)
  • Unlabeled wool pants ($2)
  • Wool polka-dot jacket NWT ($4)
  • Saint James boatneck ($2)
TOTAL: $15

Also for Eloise:

  • Patagonia lightweight snowsuit/bunting ($14 -- half off, so $7)
  • Stonz booties NWT ($14 -- half off, so $7)
TOTAL: $14 (and these will fit next year, too -- and the snowsuit might stretch to age 3)

For Stephen:

L.L. Bean fleece shirt NWOT ($5)


For Ashley:

  • Patagonia zip layer ($6)
  • Nike Dri-Fit Fleece ($6)
TOTAL: $12
