So Groooovy

I have been wanting a house coat for quite a while now, but I didn't particularly like any of the ones I've seen in the stores and I definately didn't like the prices that came with them. Then I was thrifting with Ben the other day while Carter was at preschool and I found this gem for $2.99. I fell in love.

I also just discovered that our Value Village has a "vintage clothing" section. How did I not know this before?!?! AND they were having a half off deal the other day, so check out this groovy orangy red jacket I found. I'm thinking a white tee and some cute jeans. What do you think? Check out this collar and the super cool stitching!! Price? $5.





This coat is a little darker than it looks in the picture. Its HEAVY. Wool and gorgeous. Price? $5.







And then, my first find of my super cool groovy vintage clothing. This 100% double knit polyester jacket. I didn't find it on the half off day, so I paid a whopping $6.99 for this one. But I fell in love. Its just sssooo, sssoooo.....vintage? Either way, I love it. We just finally got summer here, but I'm already looking forward to fall!

I NEVER find good deals like this...I'm thinking I'm in the wrong area...or maybe the wrong shops? Move to NC so you can take me 'thrifting' :-)
