Happy Thursday, ladies.  It has been such a fun week to begin 2023 here on the blog.  Let’s keep the fun going and discuss how it’s time to donate and shop thrift.

January is one of the best times to donate and shop thrift…activity at my local Goodwill San Antonio locations confirm it!

I went to several locations this past couple of weeks, just to have some fun…here is what I found.

IT’S TIME TO DONATE AND SHOP THRIFT

I am in one of my rare clean out moods (Mr. B loves these times), so I began the year as I donate…and shop thrift.

It was refreshing to clean out some cabinets.  I found that my kitchen and master bath remodels showed me that I had too much stuff and it needed to go.

I do like to re-purpose and love the fun in it, but many times hold on too long to items with the intention to give them new life.  Many of those are now gone.

I donated easily at one of my local Goodwill San Antonio locations, and then walked to the front.  The donation area was very busy as many had the same intentions for the beginning of the year as I did.

IT’S TIME TO DONATE AND SHOP THRIFT: GOODWILL SAN ANTONIO

There was a line waiting to go in and I wanted to show you how I saw many women dressed to spend time diving into the racks.

Almost as if playing a sport.  I know the economy is challenging right now, and our Goodwill San Antonio is so good that many can find real bargains there for families.

The racks are packed and there were special racks for designer clothing.  Many included tags still on.

IT’S TIME TO DONATE AND SHOP THRIFT: FASHION FUN

I really go to Goodwill San Antonio on a regular basis to have fun and to treasure hunt.

This time of year, you can come upon some real finds.

The items I am showing you today were selected to encourage you to do your own treasure hunting.

This white blouse is a designer find!  I did not purchase this, but wanted you to see the finds.

This had tags still on and is a top from three dots fashion…often discovered at Nordstrom or Bloomingdales.

The tag reads that it was originally $138…at Goodwill it was $14.

There was a special section full of kimonos….they are excellent items to find in thrift stores.

I almost purchased the orange sleeveless sweater top I am wearing underneath….it had nice detail.

I think it is fun to find pieces like this tunic and imagine what could be done with it.

There were also many tunics I saw this day.

This little red, white and blue jacket has a “crane” print and is fun.

I purchased it at $5, and I have plans to design it for a trip….of course, I will show you if what I plan works out.

It was worth the $5 to take it home and play with it.  Sometimes, if my plans do not work, I just donate them back.

That is part of my donate and shop thrift mentality.

If this jacket had been in my size, I would have paid the $20 and taken it home in a heartbeat.

I love the detail of the jacket and the color.  The brand is called Gallery, and again can be found at Nordstrom (Gallery Jackets).

I always have fun with fashion at my favorite thrift store…Goodwill San Antonio.

IT’S TIME TO DONATE AND SHOP THRIFT: HOME GOODS

My favorite departments past fashion, are the home goods and children’s departments.

I followed many women around Goodwill San Antonio shopping home goods, a couple were staging homes.

At this time of year when more donate and shop thrift, you just do not know what you will find.

IT IS TIME TO DONATE AND SHOP THRIFT – WHAT I PURCHASED

These lovely little leggings are a Target brand, and there were many in each location I stopped by.

I knew my DIL would love them for my youngest granddaughter…and she was happy to get these. She often shops Target…how fun to find them for less at Goodwill San Antonio.

I purchased the $5 jacket, these leggings, a planter for my yard, a book for me, and two Winnie-the-Pooh books for my grandchildren on this trip.

Goodwill San Antonio has already helped me to have Valentine’s Gifts for three of the grandchildren…all for about $26.

So, tell us, do your donate and shop thrift this time of year?  Please tell us any special finds you have discovered.

If you live in or near San Antonio, make sure you check on some of the many Goodwill San Antonio locations…they do so much for our community needs…and for us!

Thanks for being here…fashion fun continues tomorrow……

KEEP SMILING!!
