A few weeks ago I was in Myrtle Beach hanging out with some fab chicks from a PR agency that represents the beach authority. I was actually there for their 2nd annual Food & Wine Food Festival. It was pretty laid back, chill and full of southern-style food.
Sure I was there to grub, but I asked my itinerary include an afternoon of thrifting. I think they were a bit confused at my request but when I insisted my host drive me 20 minutes out to an area where thrift and vintage stores laced the avenue, she was intrigued. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon and every place I had scouted out on my iPhone were, er, closed!
I was relentless in my search of some serious finds and so in my determination we drove a few more miles and came across the biggest Goodwilll Retail I've ever stepped foot in. A good 11k square feet of goodness!
I spent all of 45 minutes and walked out with 12 uber fabulous, timeless pieces. The best one: this STUNNING peach beaded and sequin short blazer (almost bolero-style) with fully attached new tags, MY size (the most important element) and all for $3.75! Clearly it was worth every dime of about $300 when it was on the market. It fits me like a silk glove needing nil a touch of fixing! What more can a girl ask for? Swoon!
The white knotted blazer in cream was also $3-something, which I'd been looking for. And I love the burnt orange butterfly collar poly shirt. Fab. $2-something and though a marked Large, I can rock it with bell bottoms.
The other finds were just as amazing, needing little alteration and modification. All in all, I walked out with 12 pieces and only spent $30. Now that's what I'm talking about being a GOOD GoodWill!
Next time you're in Myrtle Beach, you must, must stop at the Goodwill I stormed through!
