Latest Thrift Store Trip: Part 2: “21 Pairs of Jeans”

DSC_0082

Poshmark

Last I posted, I was on Part 1 of the Latest Thrift Store Trip.  Now for Part 2, we have the denim portion of the second post. My cart gradually piled high with pair after pair. I picked the best brands and some not so best brands, but those that were long and/or skinny, basically those which I thought would sell.  Brands included 7 for all mankind (finding three Dojo styles that always sell, one of which had an offer the day I listed it), Citizens of Humanity (including Boho, Margo, Kelly and Ingrid styles), Hudson (including a Reilly), Levi’s (including a Bold Curve Skinny and a 515), Fox Racing Hesher Skinny, Joe’s Jeans Provocateur, Lucky Brand Classic Rider, Gap Perfect Boot New With Tag in a size 29 Long, and CAbi #222’s.  I managed to get most of them listed, but are waiting on the laundering of a few others.  I spent $54 on 21 pairs making my per jean cost approximately $2.50 each.  Potential gain around $1,000.

DSC_0640

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ Poshmark

Finding nothing in toys but the vintage Operation game, I spotted bags of vintage boxed Shiny Brite ornaments on the endcaps.  Searching further, I picked up 10 packs of Mrs. Grossman’s stickers, two packs of vintage Christmas stickers, some vintage sewing patterns – the cutest being the toddler jumper/romper pack, and then the coolest tall vintage greeting cards.  Each bag was between 45¢-$1.98.  And in Housewares, only the Lenox mug and Midwest of Canon Falls Cast Iron Santa and Reindeer Stocking Hangers.

While searching through jeans, I spotted the Karen Millen boots on the opposite rack.  Looking them up, I saw that they retail in the $300 range and figured their $10 price tag might be worth it.

Over in Men’s Jeans, I found the Tommy Bahama Standard and the 7 For All Mankind Slimmy, each in the $7 range.Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 7.32.18 AM

DSC_0149

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ PoshmarkMissBargainHuntressShop

Another beautiful day to head across the bay to the thrift store.  In toys I immediately found a grab bag of both new and old Fisher Price Little people for $1.98  Also a bag of what look to be Russian dolls at $4.98, about a dollar a doll. And finally the American Girl Twin, in great condition, though she’s missing clothes, also $1.98.

Strolling by electronics, I picked up the awesome vintage Jack & Jill lamp by Nursery Plastics Inc., paying up at $7.48.

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 3.02.45 PM

Nearby were the dresses and I thought I’d give them a bit of time.  I picked out a Tommy Bahama Olive and Cream Zebra Stripe Maxi Dress for $6.98 and a Bisou Bisou banded dress, new with tag, at $6.48 after 75% off. And then down the jean aisles I scooped up another pair of 7 For All Mankind Dojos, a Current Elliott skinny pair, J.Crew Toothpick Ankle in a lovely watermelon hue, Black Hudson Carly Straight, Antik Denim and a more vintage pair of AG Adriano Goldschmied The Angel.  I paid up a bit for some of the pairs, only because I know how quickly they sell.

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 3.07.54 PM

Okay, paying up this time at an $88 total, potential gain could be $650.

DSC_0912

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ PoshmarkMissBargainHuntressShop

All excited once again, the inventory in the store did not quite meet my expectations.  Maybe I should start going on a different day.  I found nothing in grab bags, but as far as toys went, I picked up a Rodney Reindeer for 75¢, a 1977 Gund Bear, and then two Cabbage Patch Kids, half off, from behind the boutique counter at about $3 each.

DSC_0766

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ PoshmarkMissBargainHuntressShop

I was really geared up for this.  The sun was shining and I had had about enough of rainy weather, no garage sales and limited thrift store trips.  It was time to add some new stock to the store.  Not that I found a ton, but at least I made a good effort.  In toys I only came across the vintage My Little Pony’s and a Dandee Cuddly Kingdom Purring Lion Cub.

Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 1.04.53 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 1.08.06 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 1.09.34 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.17.07 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.19.26 AM

In more grab bags I found the Christmas ornaments, including a Hallmark Keepsake Meadow Snowman from 1997 and two Traditions ornaments from 1992 – a Jack In The Box Santa and a Squirrel on a Clothespin.  The bag for 99¢.

On to jeans, every size section seemed to hold a decent pair.  And all were under $3.  I found J Brand Skinny Leg, Paige Skyline, AG Adriano Goldschmied The Angel in Black, Hudson, 7 For All Mankind Dojo and A Pocket, and Lucky Brand Sant Tropez.

Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.21.37 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.22.26 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.23.34 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.24.29 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.25.36 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.25.43 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.25.50 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.26.39 AM Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.27.42 AM

And in shoes I picked up a few pair for a few dollars.  Miss Bisou heels, Born Concept Laurina Sandals and Via Pinky Naylie Sandals.

Also in the mix was a nice yard of Braemore Fruit fabric, some heavy metal bells and a couple of pretty hand-painted ceramic boxes that I will needlessly add to my collection.  $37 spent, twenty items gathered for dollar cost averaging of under $2 per item and potential total gain of $600.

DSC_0375

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ Poshmark ~ Threadflip

Oh, it had been so long since I’d been back!  Probably six weeks or so.  As I drove there I imagined that all of the inventory would have been turned over since the last time I was there.  I was right.  The racks were even sparse.  I thought they must have purged a lot with the end of the year.  And, luckily for me, marked way down the designer jeans that hadn’t sold at some of their ridiculous prices.  I found:

3 Pairs of Hudsons: Two Nico Super Skinny Midrise and one vintage

3 7 For All Mankind: Dojo, “A” Pocket & Flynt

2 Rock & Republic: Kasandra and Stella

2 AG Adriano Goldschmied:The Angel & The Legend

1 Paige Denim Laurel Canyon

1 Lucky Brand Sofia Boot

1 Joe’s Jeans Harvey Wash

1 MEK DNM Barclay

3 J. Crew: Hipslung, Bootcut & Matchstick

Each pair was under $5, mostly at $2 each.

Once again, the jeans took over my cart.  You can see I found 10 pairs, each under $5 except for the Hudson’s that took a bit of time to decide to actually purchase.  I found two pairs of Joe’s Jeans, Citizens of Humanity Ingrid #002, Silver Jean Pioneer, Marc Jacobs Angela, Paige Denim Robertson, 7 for all Mankind Dojo, the Hudson Gray Amu and a Z.Cavaricci and Banana Republic pairs that were too cute to pass up.

DSC_0445

Find My Finds: Amazon ~ Etsy ~ Bonanza ~ Ecrater ~ Poshmark ~ Threadflip

Starting in toys, I found a couple of grab bags that contained the 50th Anniversary of Snow White, which means 1988, Doc and Bashful hand puppets for $1.  I also found the 1978 Benji with Hang Tag and brush, Classic Aurora White Dog with hang tag, collar tag, tush tag and tush button for $2, and the Scentsy Buddies Lion for $2.  It wasn’t until I went to the Boutique Counter and asked about the two trolls in the corner was I pretty sure they were Thomas Dam.  At $5 each it wasn’t until I got home that I found the stamp on their back with “Thomas Dam 1977.”

Down the jeans aisle I was getting pretty lucky with three pairs of 7 for All Mankind at under $5 each including a Dojo and a Ginger.  I also found a Rock & Republic Costello and a AG Adriano Goldschmied The Angel, both also under $5.

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.32.24 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.32.22 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.28.50 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.23.41 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 12.17.29 PM

In other clothing I picked up a Lapis Dress, a INC pretty beige tunic, a cool Mickey & Minnie embroidered top and a Sisley Paris brown argyle sweater vest, each were under $3. And in shoes I found the Dansko Theas, some really cool Japanese made Platform Shoes and some Steve Madden Lizi’s, each under $3.

In housewares I picked up a very cute Enesco Elephant bank but unfortunately the price tag took off some of the back paint.  I hate that.  Along with two Lancaster Pitchers at 99¢.

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 8.26.47 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 8.26.56 AM

And finally, in Bags, I found the Lilly Pulitzer for Estee Lauder tote at $2 and the oh so very awesome 1970’s Coach purse for all of $3.
