Today on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/haveparasolwilltravel) I shared one of the treasures I scored at a local thrift store. If you have yet to follow me you should really get on that! 😸 It is a shirt/sweatshirt from the clothing line UIDEAZONE. More about them later in the post.

You may have heard of and/or been to one before. The thrift store is Savers. I first discovered them through a friend/bandmate while living in Orange County. They one we visited in Quebec City was called Village des Valeurs. You don't know how happy I was to find one several close to where we are now. When I go to a thrift store I usually find something unique. Not sure if it's because I look for an item that others overlook, or that they just put it out. Depending on the day it could be either. There are occasions when I find way too many overpriced items. When the item is from Target, Walmart, Old Navy, or Kohl's it should not be vey expensive in a thrift store. In the end....if someone is wilingl to pay that amount then good for the store. On the flip side....they will price something I know has significant value (at least to me) very low. Being a treasure hunter is in my DNA. I go to town trying to find things that are just right. I want to find clothing and accessories that make me feel good and express my playful side. So, what do you do when you don't have a budget to go crazy (for me, most of the time!).

Well, right now when you bring in a bag of donations you receive a card punched for 5% off of your purchase. Bring in three bags than it's 15%. Bring in six then it's 30%. Every time I go I bring at least one bag of donations (clothing, accessories, household items, etc.) and have a card (currently green) that was previoulsy provided by them hole punched. Once the card reaches 30% off I start another. They also give you a red card that is marked for every $5.00 you spend. They even give you multiple cards when warranted. How can you beat that? If you donate items regularly or like to go thrifting semi-regularly take advantage of these discounts. Don't even get me started on the sales they hold during certain days of the week!!!
