i've been finding some absolutely fabulous thrift store finds lately. perhaps that directly correlates to the ridiculous amount of time i've been spending in my favorite thrift stores lately. but that's besides the point, getting back to those fabulous finds....
here are my favorite finds from a trip to goodwill this past weekend. i almost passed up this sweater. it would have been a sin. in the store it didn't look as cute as when i got it home and put it up to noah. i was so thankful i threw it back into my cart. it's a hand knit sweater in an unknown yarn. it's stinkin' cute. it was 75 cents. what!?? i thought it was a steal at $1.49, but when i got to the register it was apparently on sale. so jackie chorney, whoever you are, where ever you are, know that your precious hand knit sweater is getting another dose of love.

i've been on the search for good hiking boots for the boys, especially tanner. we can't afford to buy them new (at $50 to $60 a pair, it just isn't happening), so i was so psyched to find a pair of vasque hiking boots for both boys. in their current sizes!!! these bad ass hiking boots don't even show any wear on the soles or the insoles, pretty sure they've never been worn! i paid $4 for the black ones in tanner's size and $3 for the brown ones in noah's size.
and for me i found this gorgeous 100% cashmere cowl neck sweater. it's so pretty and so soft. i've scored a few cashmere sweaters over the past few months, but none can compare to this one. look at the gorgeous stitch patterns in this beauty! love at first sight :) I paid $5.99 for it, and it's worth every penny. I'd have to guess it's easily a $100 sweater since even the plainest and lowest quality cashmere sweaters retail for $50 to $60.
have you come across any fabulous thrift store finds lately?
