Thrifting in King of Prussia.....

On Thursday, 5 of us meet in King of Prussia for a fun day of great conversation, good food and of course thrifting! A few months ago I was so lucky to start a blogging friendship with Kim from My Domestic Bliss. In one of our conversations we thought, wouldn't it be so much fun to meet in King of Prussia and go thrifting. Then we thought, why not see who else would like to join in the fun!

So here we are (minus me) from left to right:

These girls are awesome and so much fun! First we meet for a brunch and had some good laughs! Then we set our plan of action for thrifting!  Jessi wasn't able to join us thrifting, but so glad she could meet us for brunch! She is a sweetheart! Kim was our tour guide and she did wonderful! Our first stop was a consignment shop, Kim took her camera in and you'll need to keep an eye on her blog for the pictures! We didn't want to scare the owners with too many camera's! I did pass on a beautiful china pattern, now I am thinking I should take a drive back for it. Although it is probably gone by now.

Deb was our taxi driver and we had 3 GPS's...just in case! (We still manaed to get lost on the way there.)
We went to a Good Will and a Salvation Army in Norristown, Pa. I was so proud of Deb for making a great purchase on a mirror! (Deb is a long time friend and neighbor)

Hurray up take her money before she changes her mind!

Deb did it! Purchanse made! Isn't that an awesome mirror! She is going to hang it in her foyer. I think she said she is going to be painting it black. 

Here is Kim buying a picture frame! She bought 3 addorable frames through out the day!

Here is Stephanie showing me a picture. It wasn't until after I took the photo I realized what the picture looked like. Ummmm...Is she holding it up side down or right side up? Any ways...she didn't buy that picture. (Stephanie is the one who got me hooked on blogging!)

On to our next shop....this is where I did good...really good! I will take the trip again to this thrift shop!
Let me give you a closer look at the shoes. I paid $12 for. They look like they were never worn!
When I got home went on line and found them at Nordstrom for $89!

I also got 2 great jackets. They both look like they were never worn! The owner told me they wash and iron everything, if it needs dry cleaned they will have it dry cleaned first.

We plan to get together again and find another fun town to do some thrifting in! Thanks girls I had a great day! Maybe you can join us next time! We hope :)

Great finds! I think we have the same taste. I love your dining room and now your jackets. Too cute. That looks like a lot of fun.

Isn't blogging great?
The friendships made are priceless!
It was neat to read about you girls shopping together!
I wish I lived in PA!
I will have to see who is near me here in SC!
You all scored some wonderful things, and what's more important, you spent time together having fun!
