I Spent all day thrifting yesterday at the local Good Will. Can't believe the clothing that can be found there. I find it super therapeutic to stand at clothing racks for hours, just moving one hanger after another to look for hidden treasures. It does take a long time, and I probably look at 100 items before I find a good one. I have decided to sell my great finds on Poshmark and possibly Ebay. I don't plan on making tons of money, but I do feel that I at least deserve a finders fee for spending the huge amounts of time looking thru the clothes to find real gems for people to treasure.
Today, I have spent all day washing and logging my clothing items into my log book. Most thrifters/re-salers say that they do not wash the clothing before they mail them out to their customers, but I do wash everything. The clothes have a nauseating odor and actually feel grimy to the touch. Even the new with tags items are in this condition. I even hand wash the dry clean only stuff, and it turns out just fine. I would not send these unwashed items to anyone, so rest assured, the clothes you get from me are nice and clean.
I found this stunning Whit House/Black Market cocktail dress. The picture doesn't do it justice. I could just picture this as some winter parties and other events.
I love this little stretchy sweater dress. Put a long sleeved tee, some leggings, and slip on some little boots and you would be ready to go. Toss on a leather biker jacket and you could do the Urban chic thing.
I found this Banana Republic wool blend career dress. Said it was dry clean only, but I hand washed it. Came out just great. This would be some very classy office wear. Jazz it up a little and you could do an after 5 look.
Found this adorable J Crew linen jacket. My dress form is ridiculously busty, so I couldn't button it up. Wish I was small so that I could wear it.
The Ebay sellers are always talking about North Face items. This vest is in superb condition. I have never come across this brand before yesterday.
Another great Banana Republic office dress. Hand washed this dry clean only gem and it is right as rain. I personally don't like dry clean anything. If I can wash it, I will sell it. If it is ruined by being washed, well, I didn't want it anyway. Love the vibrant pink. Could jazz this up as well for after 5.
This was so unusual, that I couldn't pass it up. Just wish I was small enough to wear most of this stuff. Look at the sleeves and ruffles. Who doesn't like polk-a-dots?
This is one of the best denim shirts I have ever found. What interesting details. There is actually a tab on the inside of the sleeve, so you can turn it up and then tie it thru those O rings.
This Banana republic sweater is the lightest sweater I have ever seen. It has alpaca wool in it, and is so unbelievably soft. Not a single snag on it. Some lucky girl will love to add this to her wardrobe and wear this little gem.
That's just a few of the items I found this time. I will be holding most of this stuff over until fall, when I will most likely list it on Poshmark. I need to get busy and list all of the lovely things I have for spring and summer. When I do list items, I will be sure to post my link on the contact page. If you see anything you must have, just shoot me and e-mail.
