Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Please pray for those injured and killed in yesterday’s building collapse at The Salvation Army in Philadelphia!

Today is another day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice in it!  I’m feeling vibrant and thrifty in my $20.00 outfit, yes, this entire outfit cost me 20 bones!

On Friday I had the pleasure of spending the day with my girlfriend, her mother and her daughter, 3 generations on a mission to thrift 2 outfits for less than $10.00 each from The Salvation Army Family Store.  Driving north in the drizzling rain to Wilmington in anticipation of thrifting was a great way to start my vacation day.

The layout of The Salvation Army Family Store made it easy to maneuver the shopping carts throughout the floor and in between the racks, making it easier to locate bargains.  We started at the front racks, filled with skirts, blazers, pants and tops organized by color and then worked our way back to the dresses, finding both casual and dressier attire.

The price points for clothing at The Salvation Army Family Store is higher than that of Goodwill but there are still bargains to be had.  I found a pair of new, white Liz Claiborne jeans for $4.99, a perfect wardrobe addition for the summer! The “color of the day” was pink, which meant 50% off all clothing and shoes with a pink tag, and we each found at least one pink tag item.

The shoe racks were filled with a variety including Anne Klein, Steve Madden and Nine West pumps, Merrell Ortholite, Skechers and Enzo Angioline sandals, which I purchased, a little pricey at $14.99, but still a bargain because they can originally sell for $59.00.

Thrifting with the 3 generations of ladies at The Salvation Army Family Store was enjoyable as well as satisfying knowing that our purchases would be helping the Adult Rehabilitation Program.  The Salvation Army’s mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it was refreshing to hear the overhead announcement, “Welcome to The Salvation Army Family Store…Have a Blessed Day”

Clothing is not all you’ll find!
