Thursday as I made my way through the Family Thrift Outlet, I spotted the CUTEST needlepoint purse….in someone else’s cart. It’s an item I have heavy on my radar for the bestie, since they can cost $40 & up in the upscale resell shops.
Well, I see the woman who’s cart it is & tell her that it’s an amazing find. She laughs and tells me that her daughter asked her last week to look for one while she was out thrifting because they saw one in a resell shop. The kicker? It’s the same resell shop that put this item on my radar & the SAME purse because she told me they wanted $60 (that’s how much the one my bestie was ogling)!!
We went on to talk about our favorite thrift spots & how that resell shop had some ridiculous prices. We both agreed the Family Thrift Outlet was our go-to store! I mean where else could you get a needlepoint purse in MINT condition for $2?!
Her thrift tip? If you have something in your basket you like, cover it up. She’s had things swiped from her basket when she’s walked away to look at an item. Might have been innocent, but it can be chaotic so just keep an eye on your basket 😉
