Thrifty Thursday Nov 4.10

I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that I've lost 15 lb over the past year. So, you know what that means: loose clothes! And you know what that means: thrifting!
I've had a good week at my local thrift stores.
I found this beautiful wool coat at Frenchies for $11.00; other than the lining in a side pocket needing to be sewn, it's in perfect condition.

Every gardener needs a good pair of boots, but $40 is too rich for me. This week, Frenchies have received a truckload of boots and shoes; and I was there at the right time. I got this pair for $6! .
With working an office job, I often wear skirts. I was really pleased when I found these double packs of pantie hose for $2 each and the pair of navy for $0.50.
And then just as a cute treat, I found this sweet little set of melamine measuring cups at The Daisy for just 50 cents.
Happy Thrifting friends. And don't forget to check out Leigh at Tales From Bloggeritaville for more wonderful Thrifty Thursday finds.

Great finds. High five on the weight loss. I am trying to lose the weight I put on after having to have a hysterectomy because of cervical & uterine cancer. Love to hear of an achievement!

I am seriously going on a hunting trip with you one day - you seem to have some sort of "great deal radar" or something!

That coat is amazing, and I adore the blouse/pants combo in your previous post. How does that look with the boots?
