This is my $3 dress. It was on a rack of clothing outside a "girly stuff" store, and I figured even though it was a size 10 and I wasn't sure it'd fit i couldn't go wrong. I also got a paisley print t shirt.

Found some Currier and Ives dishes at an estate sale last weekend. Finding bits and pieces to add to my collection.

Free, free, free, free, free!

I love the turquoise beaded dress. It's a size 8 which will keep me motivated to stay healthy. The shirts and skirt are perfect for spring.

The white lace jacket will be worn over my Easter dress, the orange jacket is merino wool(!) and the green sweater has some wool in it. I also forgot a purple plaid shirt, but it fits.
All these were picked up at a clothes closet in Brooksville run by a church. The lady there said she was giving away some of the winter clothes so she'd have room for spring clothing.

I found a little Haviland Limoges dish at a garage sale for $1.00! I was so excited! I will use it at a ring dish or for my cute little paperclips at my desk, Perhaps I'll rotate it back and forth! I love limoges dishes, I find them so feminine and beautiful - I have a few serving dishes I've been collecting for special occasions and am always watching!

How did you find the free clothes? There are a lot of thrift shops around upstate sc and I really need to explore them.
I would love to find some jade glass bowls.

Tara, I was just in our local shop at the right time. The lady in charge was clearing out winter stuff for the warmer weather. I still got some use of the sweaters before I packed them away for summer.

Oh, sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a shopping trip that had no husband tagging on to try and make me quit.
The shop was Another Man's Treasure, a charitable boutique. I drove up there in the chilly air, warm blouses for to seek.

Enough Gilligan's Island intro- you can fill a large paper bag for $10.60. I tightly rolled all my finds so I could get more in the bag. In all, I got 17 tops (one didn't get in the picture). The gray cashmere sweater was shrunk, I thought I could still wear it, but it was too tight. The dark blue Oxford shirt is too tight across the bust. All in all, less than a dollar a shirt!
