We haven’t had an open thread to share our best finds, lately, and frankly I love it when you tell me about the great bargains you scored. (Because the only thing better than that great deal is the admiration of your fellow shoppers, afterward.)
Here, I’ll start: I was dropping off some outgrown clothing at our local kids’ consignment store, this past weekend, and everything in the store was half off for Easter. Naturally I decided to do a bit of shopping, and I found a few things for the kids at great prices. Then I wandered over to the “Juniors” section and found a brand new summer dress from J. Crew in my size. (Okay, it’s nice to be small enough for this sort of thing, but here I insert my standard disclaimer about how grown women shouldn’t wear clothing actually meant for teens. This dress wasn’t, but just a general caution about how dressing too young actually makes you look older.) I flipped over the tag to discover it was marked at $20, which meant it would be $10. I was in a hurry and someone was in the fitting room… and I didn’t need it… but it was really cute and $10 for a J. Crew dress? Okay, I had to chance it.
But when I got up to the register, it turned out that the dress was actually on clearance. It wasn’t $10; it was $1. When I finally tried it on at home I discovered that it fits perfectly. Woo!
Your turn—what was your greatest find of late?
