thrifted find #2 + digging for treasure {31 days of thrifting}

Another favorite thrifted find:
 
coach
 
A Coach swingpack for $1.99! I found it at the bottom of a cart underneath a bunch of other plastic and vinyl purses and bags. It was horribly dirty, but I figured it was worth $2 to see what I could do with it!
It cleaned up pretty nice, didn’t it?
 
I washed it and resold it on eBay for $35 plus shipping the next week. Hey!
 
I’ll take that deal.
 
Which leads me to:
 
thrifting tip #2.
 
Be prepared to dig.
Once you’re okay with the umm…differentatmosphere of a thrift store, you have to be ready to dig for the treasure. You will see piles of what seems like worthless junk at first glance, but in my experience, the best stuff is rarely at the top of the pile.
 
You’ll see what I mean soon enough…
 
let’s just say I’ve got a little somethin’ up my sleeve for tomorrow’s post.
 
heh heh. :)
 
 
Okay, so I loved hearing about your thrift stores yesterday! I’m glad to know most thrift stores are pretty much like ours down here in Texas!
 
I’m loving your finds too! I’ve got a few reader finds lined up to show you all this week, so keep sending them in if you’d like me to feature yours as well! How much fun is that?!
 
So tell me, have you found something awesome hidden in a pile of junk at your thrift store? I’m all ears!
