Thursday Thrift Score: Clothes Swap Edition

This week, I had a lovely time perusing other ladies' cast-offs at the spring clothes swap hosted by Echo Theatre. I totally lucked out too! Apparently, someone my size was unloading lots of garments, so my wearable-to-refashionable ratio ended up a lot higher than it usually is.

First, let's tally up the good-to-go pile!

Six sweaters (one Gap)
Five t-shirts
One tank top
Two button-down shirts
One dress
One pair of Gap jeans
One Fossil bag

Clothes Swap Haul

And in this corner, we have the refashionables:

Five skirts
Two dresses
One pair of slacks (which might be wearable as is, I haven't decided yet)
One blouse

Clothes Swap Haul

All for just $20 and a box of donated clothes lacking refashion potential. Now to do some laundry and get to work!

    1. I know! I've gotten some clothes there before with holes or stains, with the thinking that if I don't take it and refashion around the damage, it'll probably end up in the garbage. But this time, I think I only saw one such garment and someone else had already claimed it with the same intentions - to alter it herself!

    1. Yeah, it's fantastic! I'm so glad I found out about it!
