No, that title isn’t a teaser-- I’m really asking you.
Shopping at thrift stores (thrifting?) has never really been my strong suit. I'm learning. If I see something put together on a model or in a picture I can get a good idea of what I want, but hunting for clothes has been a challenge.
With the Grand Opening of Deseret Industries in Springville (a.k.a. South-By-Southeast Provo), I decided to give it a(nother) try.
Here’s what I found and brought home:
These pants-- with tags still attached-- for my daughter:
These scout shirts (I’m only showing you one, but I bought two-- one in a bigger size for later) for my son:
These snow pants:
**Yo, those pink pants? With tags? Burton brand. Srsly.**
Now, I don’t know what the total would have been had I gotten these things directly from their original store rather than gently used at DI, but I know at least one of those dresses would have been way more than $77 on its own.
645 South 1750 West
(the 400 South exit; located to the East of W*M, just across the street)
I think it’s a good location to take some of the crowding away from the Provo store. There are a lot of families in Southern Utah County who can donate and shop here (and probably fewer college students just dumping their junk, amirite?).
