Thrifty Thursday Feb 6.11

After not being able to thrift for 7 weeks, I had fun while my daughters were home over Christmas. So today, I'm joining Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday . Let's start with my local thrift shops.
At Frenchies, I got this great summer dress, brand new ($34.95 tag) for $3.85.
And in case you didn't notice yesterday's post, I got this lovely felt hat, again brand new ($18.95 tag) for $1.85. [The broach was bought at VV last winter for $1.99.).
I dropped into The Daisy on Tuesday and found this beautiful necklace for $2 and the 100% cotton turtleneck for $3.50.
The coral colored leather purse was expensive at $4..
Then on Tuesday the 29th when I took my eldest to the airport, we dropped into the city and went to Value Village. I got these 2 t-shirts for $3.99 each.

I also got a lovely 3/4 length brown wool coat which needed all it's buttons reattached; it's now at the dry cleaners, so you'll have to wait for that reveal. But I have begun looking for flats as I'm not sure how well my foot will react to a heel for a few years. I found these 2 pairs for $3.99 and $4.99).

However, as you can see, my right foot is still a little swollen. Healing takes time, I guess!
But I am walking on my own now; I'm not walking well, but I am walking! And you know what that means ...
If I can walk, I can thrift!

Ahhhh! My world is slowly be set to rights again!

My right foot looks JUST LIKE your right foot! Had surgery in November and am still limping around. Still junking though. Happy New Year!

I love the new header! You have been lucky with your new finds. I'm not as fortunate when I drop in at Frenchy's in Bridgewater. Maybe I should try the Lunenburg location. Love that purse and your foot is looking much better in those elegant shoes. :)
