San Antonio Goodwill Dezavala Store

San Antonio Goodwill Dezavala Store

This was my first visit to this Goodwill Dezavala store.  Doesn’t the word Dezavala sounds glamorous, something like Zaza Gabor?

If you read my blog you know that I absolutely LOVE and adore dishes and I hit the jackpot at this store!

Let me share a few highlights of what caught my eye.

Rita Garcia wore an incredible vintage beaded dress!  The dresses were high end designers, a few with original tags!

Our best piece of advice is to shop early to get the best selection.

Tune in tomorrow and if you don’t get a chance to see it, we will post a link.

An AMAZING Day ~ Meeting some of our Readers at Goodwill Store in San Antonio

An AMAZING Day ~ Meeting some of our Readers at Goodwill Store in San Antonio

As an official blogger for Goodwill of San Antonio they recently asked me to do a workshop at a Grand Opening of their newest store @ Loop 1604 and Bulverde Road.

One of the BEST parts of this incredible weekend was meeting a few readers who came to my workshop (Pinteresting Ideas) to meet me!   I can’t tell you how special that was to know that the time I have put into this blog is touching people and that they took time out of their busy schedules to come say hello!  Writing for 2 different blogs www.ShopwithPippa.com and www.TooCheapBlondes.com , both about thrifting, Jen and I have had the opportunity to meet so many people, it would surprise you who thrifts.  I guess we are a few of the brave souls who are proud about it and will actually admit it!

Here is a reader and a thrifted outfit that she put together from reading the blog, LOVE this!

What the Mannequin wore for Halloween … Sorry I left you hanging 🙂

I needed a break from blogging for a few days and forgot to post the mannequin!  So sorry but thank you for all the messages.

She was a sexy witch this year and unfortunately the poster is covering up her skirt 🙂

I did have a little boy lift up her dress to see what was underneath it and then of course the dad had to follow suit.

What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

What will the Mannequin wear this year for Halloween?

Every year we host the neighborhood Halloween party and to remind everyone, my mannequin dresses up as she holds a sign.

Of course all of her outfits are found at a thrift store.

I didn’t really think it was that big of deal until last year I had at least 30 cars (that I saw) stop by our front yard, roll down their car window and take a picture with their phone.  I am surprised she didn’t go viral!

The funny thing is that I have had neighbors that I have never met, ask me if I am dressing up my mannequin this year.

A few months ago, while thrifting, I found her costume for this year.   Can’t wait to show you!!!! (on Halloween)

 

Rita Garcia, with FOX26 Houston News, wore the witch outfit for one of our segments and I have to say she looks STUNNING!!!

I love a Halloween party with a “theme”, it makes dressing up in a ridiculous costume seem somewhat normal.
