Some Great Deals!

Pin It Now!

I can't believe how lucky I've been the last couple weeks. I went to the DSW Shoe Store with my daughter after Christmas because she had some Christmas money to spend. I saw these black espadrilles but they were $49 which was too much for my after-Christmas budget. Then I noticed they had a purple tag which meant they were 80% off that price! I walked out the door with them for a little over $10 with tax! I can't wait for Spring, I think they will look so cute with capris.

Then the other day I was in the Goodwill. I was walking by an area of miscellaneous things and spotted this cute purse. Then I saw "KATE SPADE" I couldn't believe it! It was marked $7 but everything was 50% off so I got this for $3.50. I hardly ever look at the purses at thrift stores and I would have never seen this if it were with the other purses but it was just sitting in the home goods section waiting for me. I got home a did a Google search to see if it was real or fake and found this website (click here) and it looks like it's real! I saw some just like it on eBay selling for $40 but I plan on keeping mine.

The scarf was another thrift store find awhile back. There are so many great deals out there! Don't you just want to go shopping now! I do!

It's so funny, but I saw the same purse at a thrift store this week, too! I passed on it because I already have lots of black purses. Great finds!

Cindy, My kind of deals!! Thanks for sharing. I love how you displayed them!

Glenda said...

I think I'll come down to Cupertino, to your thrift shops. I think we are all shopped out up here in the SF Bay area.
I like Thrift town and some antique shops in Martinez.
I also, like going to Marshall's and Ross.
If your ever in the Hercules area let me know and will shop till we drop. I have an SUV so we can get a lot of good stuff.
Again great eye.

Judy said...

Cindy, what darling finds! Those shoes will be so "chic" with white capris, a little black top, silver jewelry, and the Kate Spade purse. I love the way you've tied the scarf on the purse...I've done that before and get a lot of compliments. Lucky girl!
