Rummage sale JACKPOTS

Oh hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. 😀

Last week I was all, “I’m going to a rummage sale” and I did and I did SO WELL but I never showed you what I bought and I know that everyone is wondering.

Obviously.

So, I’ll show you.

clothes

Bam! Bam! Bam bam bam!

This is most of the stuff right hur. Starting on the left we have a little formal number I’ll talk about later. Then a jumper which I doubted but, before a week had passed I had already worn it twice. You’ll do, leetle pink hipster jumper made from a wool-blend.

I seriously used to have that same blue shirt, but I wore it out from love. And sweat. Let’s be real, right?

That maroon-and-orange striped shirt seemed cool enough, and then I saw the tag…”rubbish.” I had a “rubbish” sweater once that I LOVED and lost somewhere…and I’ve never forgotten it (’tis better to have loved and lost? anyone?) so I picked this up as well.

The vest I saw and fell solidly into “like.” I had a vest at home at the time, grey with cables. I never really liked it, never really looked good in it…but I loved the fact that it was grey and versatile. Layers, baby. So when I saw this one I decided it would be my new grey vest. Sure enough, that other one is being donated as we speak. Well, type. And read.

Dear pink, leather flats with what I imagine to be a tropical rain-flower and my yarn.

I also bought a pair of shoes and some yarn. The shoes have proved handy, even in their hot pinkness. The yarn is gorgeous. The price tag on one says it was an $8 skien…but that didn’t stop me from nabbing it for twenty-five cents! Looks like someone might be getting a lovely scarf this year…maybe even with a new and improved pattern since my mom is handy and knows all the patterns. To teach to me, of course!

Beltzzzz.
Beltzzzz.

And the belts. One I found, navy with a cool buckle that’s really a ring. The other has mice detailing. It buckles when they hold paw-hands! It looks like they’re cuddling!

Me formal.

This dress, again. So you could see that the tags are STILL ON IT. For TWO HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE DOLLAHS. Not 100% my style, but 100% the color of my eyes and 100% only SIXTEEN DOLLARS and the lady asked, “Do you have any formal events” and I replied, “I pretty much go to weddings all the time.”

What I’m saying is, if you want to get married, I have a new dress.

How much do you think I spent total on alla those goods? Well, it was 30% mark-up day at the sale (not kidding).

If you guess $7.22 you are too low. If you guessed $105 you are too high.

Somewhere between $40 and $50. I don’t remember exactamente.

Here I am in the vest! Plus scarf that my mom bought/ gave to me. North Face skirt from a different sale. I'm debating whether or not to get those boots re-soled. Just so you know where I stand.

So, that picture above reminded me of this throw-back picture:

St. Mary and St. Joseph kicked out of the inn! Looking for a good place to have beebee Jesus!

And that reminded me of the saints and how I almost scored a second-class relic!

Letter from Fr. Prus!

Not really, though. Since he’s not canonized…yet.

Other letters (thanks!)

Lauren. Practically perfect. I mean, look at that HANDWRITING.

And this one, from baby Julia! (Full-circle!)

Isn’t that lovely???
