Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘second-hand

Hello friends and happy Saturday night, I am posting Part 2 of my Goodwill Goodies from Smyrna. Last month while shopping my closet I realized that I was in need of long sleeve blouses to wear under blazers. Today I thrifted mostly dark colors but next week I will be back hunting for more colorful ones because on Saturday all clothing will be 50% off – Woohoo!

This location always has a wide variety of shoes, these caught my attention but weren’t my size.

To clean and disinfect thrifted shoes I use Clorox and disinfecting spray inside, outside and on the soles.

Hello friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you had a great day and are winding down to a relaxing evening. I finally broke my “thrifting fast” and went to Goodwill in Dover and Smyrna in search of a few blouses and skirts. On the top of my list were a white blouse, a houndstooth skirt and anything colored oxblood – JACKPOT I found them all and then some!

I love these shopping baskets on wheels at the Goodwill in Dover, the store where my sister last worked and I could only smile thinking about her. RIP Gloria!

My next post will feature the items thrifted from Goodwill in Smyrna.

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!

Tomorrow hubby and I will be celebrating our 22nd Wedding Anniversary at our favorite restaurant in Newark. I will be wearing the blue dress that I purchased from Boscov’s and for the life of me I couldn’t remember if I had shoes to wear with it. Driving home I contemplated stopping at the mall but I didn’t want to spend a lot on a pair of shoes that most likely will be worn only a few times.
I drive by a Goodwill so I decided to stop and found 2 pairs of shoes for $4.00 each! In the past I would never have purchased second hand shoes but thanks to the recession that is no longer unthinkable.

Most times the shoes are gently worn or haven’t been worn at all and I make sure to thoroughly disinfectant them prior to wearing. I donate shoes to Goodwill all the time and there are times when women have tried on shoes in the department store prior to my purchasing them so it’s no big deal.

I spray and wipe out the shoes and straps while wearing plastic or rubber gloves, and for non-fabric shoes I use bleach and water.
