The Wardrobe is a thrift store that's a block away from my apartment. I believe they spend most of the week doling out clothing to the less fortunate, but they are open to the public for maybe two days a week, keeping weird hours that have not permitted Matt or I a trip before last weekend. I walked in and was informed of a $0.25/$2 sale; meaning each item was $0.25 or I could fill a recycling bag to the brim and the whole lot would cost $2. Of course, I took the latter option. This is what came home with me:
Next, while in Cape Girardeau this past weekend, Matt and I frequented our favorite thrift spot there: Teen Challenge. I think Teen Challenge is up to the same sort of do-gooding as The Wardrobe, though I know they sponsor activities/crafts/the like for the local teens.
Apparently they'd done some remodeling since we last visited- altogether doing away with their vintage section! Such a bummer. That was a goldmine. I came away with some cool stuff anyway : )
And lastly, we made a stop at Annie Laurie's- hand's down, the neatest place in Cape. Actually, it would probably be the neatest place in a lot of different locations. It's the best vintage and used clothing/collectible/knick-knack/everything store around. I always spend most of my time in the clothing, since, you know, that's momma's bread + butter. I only came away with two items this time, (whhaaa?) but I love them both:
Needless to say, I'm a thrifting nerd. Thanks for readin' my rambles!
