Weekend finds

Over the weekend I tried out a new thrift store in the area. Well new for me at least, I think its been around for a few months now. Ever since the store opened I tried to find time to check it out but something always came up. It is called the Arc thrift store. It is quite large by thrift store standards and I had been hearing both good and bad things about it. So needless to say, I was not passing up the opportunity to scope it out for myself when I had a few moments to do so. Like any thrift store it had it's good points and bad ones. I think the main thing I found with this thrift store was that they had a lot of volume but the quality was not the best when it came to the clothes. But regardless of that I did find a few things I liked. On the plus side the store had some really good sales happening that helped with the overall price I paid for everything! All the shoes were 50% off and the clothing was an additional 30% off. Here is what I found, plus a few items I saw but did not get. 

I snagged this polka dot pencil skirt for $2.00 after the 30% off. 

This floral skirt was just $1.99. I am not sure about the length though on me, so I might refashion into something else. I loved the bold summer floral pattern on it. 

Ok, call me crazy but this midi skirt is my favorite find out of everything I got!! I am obsessed with the pattern even if it is kind of out there. You will see this styled soon!

These ME TOO flats were $1.50 after the 50% sale! That is one of my better finds considering these normally retail around $50.00 to $80.00. 

Finally I snagged these flats for my sista for only $1.00. That is correct! A great deal if I say so myself.

Here are a few items I saw but did not end up getting. 

Ann Taylor blouse.

Gap skirt.

J. Crew top.

The J. Crew top was the only one I was second guessing myself about getting. I was close to grabbing it but decided against it. I just didn't think I would wear it enough to justify the purchase. 

So overall I found some good stuff and yes I will give it another try in the future. There is never the same product day to day in a thrift store so who knows what it will be like a couple months down the road. 

Have a great Tuesday!!



  1. Ohhh you finally went! I'm sorry you didn't quite love it. I think they have super good product and I always find good things. I find them a bit over priced though,but I noticed even GW is going up. You went on a good day to get all the deals!

    I don't think the bright red floral and dot skirt is crazy at all. I dress like that daily haha! And wow you got some good deals on the shoes. They are usually kind of expensive there.

    I wish I was your sis-haha! I love those pointed leopard flats..what a find. The red loafers are fun too.
