thrifting finds + an anthropologie mug look-alike


I mentioned on Monday that I scored a few fun thrifted finds last weekend in Dallas- I was looking for more $10 business items to sell, but I didn’t really find any bags or awesome steals. Saturday night is not the best time to find thrifted items-  it’s the one day everyone shops and the staff don’t usually restock like they do on the weekdays.

But I still managed to find a few cute things! We went to two stand-alone thrift stores on the sketchier side of town and even with my all of my thrifting experience, I was surprised at the condition of the stores- clothes were on the floor everywhere, and the items and the stores themselves were very dirty. I’m thinking I will stick with Goodwill and chain stores from now on. :)

Here’s what I found at Goodwill {my knight in shining thrifting armor}:

A pair of Nine West red leather heels: $4.99 {soooo comfy!}


A brand new chair cushion from World Market {that I’d just seen at the actual store the same day!}, $2, and a pair of funky red candle holders, $2 for both.


We scored a pair of girlie crocs for this summer {with 4 kids- we LOVE crocs at our house!}: $2, along with a super cute polka-dot 3T Gymboree sweater for $2.


And a Hollister jacket for $1.99 and this cute dress {that matches the heels!} for $5.99:


And this Dutch Wax mug was a non-thrifted Marshall’s find for $3.99:


And $4 isn’t exactly a steal for a mug, but when you love the $12 Anthropologie version:


You’re very excited to find a look-alike on the cheap! :) I’m finally getting ready for that kitchen renovation next month! I found a few fun things for the kitchen too but those will have to wait for the big reveal! ;) So fun!

Have you found any great deals lately? I’d love to hear! Leave me a link if you wrote about it- I’d love to read about it! :)

  1. Love those mugs! I have six from marshalls in different styles! So cute and a great deal too! :)

  2. The Dutch Wax mugs are actually quite pricey, I picked up two of them at TJ Maxx for $5 each, and now am wanting a few more, and having a tough time finding them anywhere! All my online searches have them at $10 to $15 per mug, and I've searched a few other local stores with no luck. So, they are worth about as much if not more than the Anthropologie mugs!

  3. You found some great things! I love the mug - Anthro style is to die for, but so are their prices...literally! :)

  4. Wow. You had some great finds! There is nothing like thrifting! Seriously. I would love for you to check out my thrifty finds {and decorating series}
    Love your blog! So happy to have found ya!

  5. Woops. Here is the link to my blog. So sorry about that! :)

  6. You did GOOD! Here's the latest from my most recent thrifting trips...

  7. Where do you find all these amazing finds? The GW near has just has junk and it's always super crowded so there its hard to really search through everything. Have any ideas for other places to try?


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
