I haven't been thrift store shopping in ages, so imagine how excited I was when I saw that there was a massive vintage sale going on at the Omni hotel today. An upstart vintage shop had to file Chapter 11 before it even opened, so they decided to sell their inventory on the cheap. How cheap you ask? I'm talking $5 dresses and $3 shirts, y'all!
My friend Heidi and I got there a little after 1:00 and I was happy to see that even though things weren't hung up, it was actually very well sorted (blazers with blazers, vests with vests, denim with denim, etc). There were only a handful of girls there and no one was pushy or cut-throat in the slightest. We were even able to try some things on behind a little curtain they had set up in the corner.
Look at all those clothes!
I have never seen so much polyester on one table in my entire life!
These dudes manned the sale and kept it awesome. Thanks, guys!
My finds: a hilarious hand stitched cat shirt (for my movie), a kimono inspired bedroom jacket, and a seersucker blazer that fits like a dream.
Total spent: $11.00.
All in all, it was a stellar day! It felt so nice to leave the house and to feel the Texas sunshine on my face. And it felt extra good to get a few new duds and to eat a cheeseburger from P. Terry's.
