FAB FINDS: $5 Bag Sale

My local thrift store held a $5 bag sale about two months ago and I have finally found the chance to post about it!! During the 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. I went with my mom again (I did last year as well) because we tend to find a lot of great pieces for each other.

~The Breakdown~
We filled up four bags with a total of 53 items. So, our total was $20! If I bought everything at the regular thrift store price, the total would have been $342 (not including one item that did not have a price).

We gave away about five things that we ended up not liking. The clothing we acquired is mainly fall/winter pieces. All in all, we were able to score some amazing items! For instance, we found a Columbia Sportswear black vest with stitched flowers, an LL Bean purple and black gore-tex ski jacket, a Banana Republic Genuine Italian Leather Belt, a DKNY Italian Leather Black Belt, the Sweet Scoops book by Shelly Kaldunski, Easy Spirit Brown Boots, ski poles, and lots of CD's. I would have to say that the belts and the CD's I found are definitely my favorite finds. Some CD's I got are Corinne Bailey Rae, Lenny Kravitz Baptism, Mariah Carey Merry Christmas, Jamie Foxx Best Night of My Life (love!!), Dierks Bentley Feel that Fire, Josh Turner Punching Bag, Martina McBride Eleven, Faith by Faith Hill, Miles Davis Kind of Blue, and Al Jarreau Heaven and Earth!
