China dishes!

Today after my dance class I went thrifting even though I was a bit tired and hot. I stopped by one of my favorite Goodwills which was a bit out of the way but so worth it. On the way there, I passed a thrift store I had never seen so I checked it out and...was majorly disappointed! It was junky looking inside and the people running it were all just hanging around outside not even minding the store. It's places like that which give all other thrift stores a bad rap. Anyway, at the Goodwill I checked out the items in my usual order-shoes,belts,glassware,skirts,jackets,dresses,and then shirts. I came across a Yves Saint Laurent belt for $1.79! After looking through everything for about two hours and finding a bunch of great deals, I checked out the glassware one more time and came across this amazing set of China on the floor in a bin. It was priced at $50, which I thought was a bit high for even Goodwill prices. I asked one of the ladies how long it had been there, and she said it was there about a week but she just wanted to get rid of it. She gave it to me for $30 because it was taking up too much space, and it only cost me $26 with my student discount! I came home and looked it up online and the exact set was going for...$500!!!! All the pieces were there and everything. An amazing deal! :)
Noritake 45 piece China set-$26.99 (found it online retailing for $500 used!)

Gorgeous detailing!

The red one is the YSL belt

Vintage sequined evening bag-$3.59

Ashley white shirt-$1.66 (Doesn't look like much, but the fabric is amazingly soft and sheer!)

Evening dress-($5.39)-I had a love/hate relationship with this dress as soon as I laid eyes on it. I'm not sure about the sleeves...but I do love that it fit me perfectly...)

Shirt from China($2.69)

Gorgeous beading!

Old Navy tank-($2.69)

Beautiful nylon material shirt-($2.69)-Loved the color palette
