Today we went to a garage sale that I found on craigslist. It didn't list any brands or things I usually look for, but I was in the mood to get out and didn't want to just go to Meijer's. Well, the garage sale was a bust. Seriously, it was a multiple family sale, but they all must suck at laundry. There were stains on everything. And no, a Gap shirt isn't worth $3 when there are stains on it. I was still in a thrift shopping mood, so we headed over to Goodwill.
I found an ArtPrize t-shirt and Carter's pajamas for Tillie and I found a Zutano cardigan for Teddy. Then I started looking at the dresses. Something bright and colorful caught my eye. There were 4 vintage Lilly Pulitzer dresses. $1.99 each, sizes 4 and 5. Oh my word, they're the cutest, retro-est, awesomest ever. Even Tillie said yes to them.
Some of them need a little work -- the yellow bears need a little stitching in the waistband and the green cats need some work on the hem. The pink/orange floral had some discoloration to the lace at the waist, but I'm hopeful that the sun will lighten it.
The elastic needs to be replaced on a lot of them too. My guess is that they're from the early 70s. I got Tillie to try on the two size 4s. Man, dresses were shorter then! They're going to be crazy short when she wears them next year.
I have been LOVING Goodwill lately. Have you thrifted anything good lately?
