Friday Frugal Finds: dresses and baskets

Back with another entry in my Friday Frugal Finds series where I share some yard sale, thrift store, or clearance finds with you.

I stopped in Value Village this week and was so glad I did!  I found some great stuff!  And I have 1/2 price day to look forward to there this week.

First I browsed the home décor and housewares section and found these really nice baskets for $2.02 each!  That was great price for a basket with a really nice liner and another nice tray type basket.  And I have already put both of these to use in my home.  I don’t think I can have enough baskets – I am all about organizing!  I do much better keeping the house clean when things have a place.

And then I had a little extra time so I browsed through the ladies clothes.  I have lost some weight recently (not for a good reason, unfortunately) but I am definitely not complaining about the weight loss!  So I am in need of some new, smaller clothes for summer.

I found 2 really pretty dresses, that I LOVE!

This one was $4.49

2 dresses for under $12 – can’t beat that!

Have you found anything good recently at thrift stores or yard sales?

  1. Love your second dress!! Would be so pretty sleeveless or with a shrug. I have found several dresses second hand lately and I just love them!! It’s taken me awhile to find my dress style, but I think I have. 🙂 Great finds!

  2. Very cute dresses, Christina! It is so hard to find cute dresses, so when I can find a bargain on cute dresses that excites me even more! Our thrift store ran a any 5 for $5 last month, and I got some nice skirts and tops them – Petite Sophisticate and Ann Klein, none the less!

  3. Great finds! Cute dresses, too! I tried to find a garage sale this morning, but the signs ended and I couldn’t find the sale, much to my disappointment. It’s still a little cool here for many sales, but hope they start picking up soon. My latest finds have been a purse and a sweater. Both which I love!

  4. I love thrift stores! Love those baskets too 🙂 I found a Value Village about 45 minutes away, not too far from my favourite Goodwill store. So, I guess I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow. I did find a cute little denim skirt at a thrift store close to home and when I found out the label was a high end clothing label I was quite happy with my find. I will say this though – some of these high end labels tend to have a different sizing system so it does pay to know that if you wear a size 4 in most everything you buy, it might not equate to the same size in those high end labels. The skirt is still a great buy (even if it’s too big on me) and I’ll just take my sewing machine and take it in!

  5. Oooohhh…cute baskets and awesome dresses!! perfect for all this warm weather!!!

  6. I love your posts, esp. your Thrifting Adventures. In NE, Value Village is known as SAVERS. I have made some great plus size scores recently, including cashmere sweaters – – yes plural cashmere – – as well as nice slacks from Talbots brand, along with some great Ralph Lauren tops, all appropriate for business casual office. they typically have some great housewares. just found a Longeberger basket for $2.99!!!!

  7. Alright, I have to find a Value Village! You got some amazing deals Christina! I love the dresses, my jaw actually dropped when I read the price for both of them. Total SCORE! I also feel you can’t have too many baskets.
