San Antonio is one of my favorite cities in Texas and the riverwalk is always charming!

When I visit other cities I always try to fit in some thrift store shopping and this trip was full of thrifting …. I will share my finds over the next few weeks.

My first visit was to the Goodwill Thrift Store @ 281 & Bitters.

Walking into the door you will see how this store is open, bright and wow … I can’t wait to get shopping in this organized store!

 

Very open and inviting store!

A whirlwind week of Thrifting, TV and those Ten Pounds ….

A whirlwind week of Thrifting, TV and those Ten Pounds ….

Last week I spent 5 days in New York with my daughter, 2 days in San Antonio thrift store shopping to come home to loads of laundry, catch up on life, home and work!   I wasn’t even here one day to find out that not only are Jen and I shooting several shows with ABC “Stretch your Dollar” later this week, FOX is doing 3 more shows with us in 2 weeks and Mirror/Mirror is in the planning stages for another segment!    Super excited about all of this and ready for work.   Oh yeah, TV adds 10 pounds so now I really have to lose the 10+ pounds I have been trying to get rid of for over a year!

Top of the Rock ... New York City!

Top of the Rock … New York City!

I have not forgotten about you and sharing my finds but my camera is so full of pictures I had to buy 2 more memory cards!  Now I just have to find the time to show you all of this FABULOUS shopping from the past few weeks!   Plus Jen has been on vacation so I am missing my shopping buddy but don’t worry, we are still virtually shopping together from different states.  One quick TIP:  Don’t always believe the yelp reviews of thrift stores, thrifting is objective so check it out for yourself.  See her post her about her thrift store shopping experience while on vacation HERE.

Now here might be the most ironic part of all of this … I don’t have anything to wear for the TV appearances!   I know I show you all of these fabulous name brand clothing but most of the time I buy casual everyday things, plus I always think  “I don’t need that, I don’t have anywhere to wear that to” or its not my size.  Well now I do have several events and I have been shopping like crazy the past few days to find something!

This was the first store I went to and I found a few things for me but as ALWAYS I have found a ton of awesome things that won’t work but I just have to show you!

(ps.  thank you for coming up and saying hello to me at thrift stores, its always fun to meet people who read the blog!)

“Miss Pippa … Where do you find all these fun clothes?”

 “Miss Pippa … Where do you find all these fun clothes?”

I have heard this comment over and over from my kids friends lately.   They want a sequins flag vest for 4th of July and where can they find them?  But of course at a thrift store!   I am not even sure if they sell these is a regular retail store???????  (have you seen them?)

I try to shop off season, for everything!  This men’s polo shirt was $1 at a New Years Thrift Store Clearance Sale, the red & white gingham check shirt was also $1 at that sale.  The red, white & blue sequins vest was $4.99, found this past spring, at a Thrift Store!

After we had passed all the new road construction and got stuck in the Burger King drive-thru …

We only had a few minutes left to shop!

MOVE OVER PEOPLE … we have some thrifting to do!!!!!!!!!!

This thrift store shop was “new” to us so we at least had to stop by and WOW are we glad we did! 

Actually we can’t wait to go back when we have time to go down every aisle!

I will admit after driving through this neighborhood I didn’t expect anything great.  

The store looked huge from the outside and we at least had to take a peek!

A First Time Thrift Store Shopping Experience in Houston!

A First Time Thrift Store Shopping Experience in Houston!

I have a friend, who if you asked me to describe her I would say “Vivacious, Full of Life and the Queen of NORDSTROMS!”

… not sure if she even knows that thrift stores exist other than to donate clothes!”

I have to admit I was a bit surprised when she asked me if she could go thrifting with me.

She wanted to find a dress for an upcoming event.

I didn’t want to discourage her so we only went to the dress section.   At the first Goodwill store here is what we found:

Crochet Anthropologie Dress for only $9.99 (plus she was Tiny enough to fit into the dress!!!!)

A.B.S by Allen Schwartz off the shoulder dress for $9.99 @ Houston Goodwill Thrift Store

A.B.S by Allen Schwartz, a favorite of Hollywood, darling off the shoulder dress for $9.99 @ Houston Goodwill Thrift Store

We actually found quite a few things but they just weren’t her size.   Ya know, she is a newbie so I can’t push her to shop more ….

Next Thrift Store (Family Thrift Center) we went to she did not find anything but I found this STUNNING Sue Wong Silk Nocturne Dress marked down half price to only $7.57!!!!!

WHAT THE HECK!!!!

I am going to list this for $189 on ebay this week!

Next stop …….

She found a darling navy ZARA dress with front pockets!  (sorry, forgot to get a picture of her) but I do want to show that ZARA is a favorite of the royals …

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge loves to wear ZARA …

I did find a vintage dress by Larrabee that is numbered L50.  It is not in perfect condition but the beading can be easily fixed.   I have never seen a vintage dress that looks so modern with with the turquoise, coral and silver beading on top of tan linen!   Exquisite and I will start the bidding at $69.99 on ebay.

Vintage Larrabee find in a Thrift Store! numbered dress, hard to find!

 Overall I would say it was a “toe-in-the-water” kind of day!  

She did find 3 fantastic dresses for $9.99 each, so a total of $29.97. 

Plus I did explain that when you find something fabulous at a thrift store you need to buy it. 

For some reason it seems when you NEED a particular dress you can’t find it. 

Thrifting is always about finding the deals!
