My First Haul

Well today I'm going to do my very first haul. I love thrifting and I have often seen hauls on other blogs so thought I would do one of my own.  In town we have a really great thrift store called "The Repeat Boutique" now the really cool thing is, is that it's run by volunteers for charity. All the money that they make goes to buy equipment for hospitals. So, let's take a look at some of my awesome finds!

Item #1
Now here in Alberta we don't usually get to where capris until usually late in may or June, but they had just gotten out the summer clothes and I couldn't help myself. I'll put them away and have them ready for me in spring.
As you can see, they come from Warehouse One. Now I don't know about you, but I haven't been able to find jeans at Warehouse One cheaper than $35 , and I bought these, like new, for $2.

Item #2
Yup yup! another pair of capris. I like these because they have a nice stretchy jean waistband, so they are really comfy.
They also have nice pockets!
These new (yes, they still had the tags on them) Contrast capris would be at least $30 and again, I got them for $2

Item #3
I love this shirt!
Especially the pleats around the neckline.
This shirt is about $35 new, and I got it for, yes, that's right, $2!

Item #4
I love the shiny silver color of this sweater! It's a bit annoying to wash, but it's well worth the effort.
I don't know what this would cost normally, but I got it for $2, so I'm happy!

Item #5
This bracelet is that same beautiful silvery color.
Isn't it beautiful? And I got it for only .50 cents!

Item #6
I really like this bracelet. I usually have a hard time fitting bracelets because of my bigger wrist (big bones run in my family), but this one is made out of memory wire, so it just winds around my wrist easily.

Well, I hope you've liked reading this, and that I didn't bore you to death. And I hope that if nothing else I've inspired you to check out your local thrift store!
