Before I left to visit my sister, I told her that I would love to hit a few thrift stores in LA so she did a little gabbing here and there and was directed to St. Vincent de Paul Thrift. And it was heavenly. And HUGE.
It was tucked back in a strange little location (bless you, GPS) about twenty minutes from my sis' place. I was a little tired and blah feeling until we entered. Thrifting is apparently feel good medicine for me!
They have everything. EVERYTHING. It's a good thing I was flying and could only take home clothes!
When we first arrived, all I saw was furniture. Rows and rows of furniture and housewares. I was a little worried that clothing was in another location somewhere in town until we turned a corner and saw this slice of heaven:
I used my sister as a human clothes rack where I piled on my finds all over her as I shopped :)
We got a pretty big kick out of these shorts which also had a Universal Studios tag inside.
Imagine our elation when we came across the matching top to those shorts in a completely different part of the store! I SO wish I knew what movie they came from! Any ideas???
I came away with six or seven vintage dresses and one 'modern' dress for around $60. A bit more than I care to pay at thrift stores but the finds were totally worth the money. And yes, I'll have the scores lined up for you in another post coming soon :)
