Consignment Store Finds

I have a consignment store near my house that takes my last season cast-offs (okay, I wish I could turn over clothes each season, but it's usually clothes that I've worn for a couple of years and then consign). I never know what I'm going to find but I usually find something. So before the husband and I went to meet celebrity chefs, I headed to the consignment store to see if I could find some black heels that were low and fairly comfortable as most of my black heels are not. And my cute polka-dot DSW shoes won't arrive until Tuesday. I ended up finding a pair of black, strappy shoes with a cute bow in the clearance section ($7.50!). They looked like there were worn maybe once. And after last night, I can see why. My feet are screaming. Yep, I walked around a casino with strappies in my hand after the main event. Thank goodness for carpeting and a staff that picks up the tiniest crumb.

I wrote a post not too long ago about finding the perfect bauble pearl necklace. Well, I haven't found it yet, but I did come closer. And at $8, how could I not get this necklace? In addition, I also found a funky, mesh necklace with grosgrain ribbon. Best part about consigning my things is the money I end up building in my consignment account to use for new purchases. In total, I ended up shelling out just over $4 on Saturday for two necklaces and a pair of barely used shoes. Not bad!

Pin It!
