FAB FINDS: $5 Bag Sale

My local thrift store recently held a $5 bag sale. You stuff a grocery bag with as much as you can and you only pay $5. My thrift store carries brand-new or very lightly worn clothing. Many items still have the tags on them. When I found out they were going to have this sale, I was so excited! My mom and I went together because two is always better than one at a mega sale. 

~The breakdown~
We filled up four bags with a total of 58 items. I had $10 off because for every 3 hrs of volunteer work, they give you $5. So, our total was $10 instead of $20!! If I bought everything at the regular thrift store price, the total would have been $340 (not including the 9 items that did not have a price).

We gave away two items and we were able to find two items for my uncle and one item for my nana. All of the clothing we acquired is a combination of summer and fall pieces.

All in all, we were able to score some amazing items! For instance, we found Elie Tahari heels, two Ralph Lauren tops, two Ann Taylor dresses, a Banana Republic sweater, a J Jill Cardigan, an INC International Concepts top, a Banana Republic coat, a Tommy Hilfiger top, an Elie Tahari dress, and a Laundry by Shelli Segal top.
