Oh my I don't know if this place has always been there
I was ThriftTrippN and spotted The Purple Dove
Once inside I found the neatly organized store with a lil of everything inside. I was kind of tired by the time I made this stop, but if you know me I could not pass up a chance to see what goodies were in there. First thing I really like The CAUSE that their proceeds benefit which is battered women and children. Immediately I knew I had to thrift for a cause and support them.
After being in the store for around 20 minutes I scored a brown leather jacket and another casual jacket plus an inspirational framed art piece!
I'm glad I was ThriftTrippN and learned of a new spot.
Everyone knows thrifting is my thing, but I love hanging out in antique shops and villages too. I furnished my house with a few antique pieces from both thrift and antique stores.
Funny thing is that when I'm antiquing I see items that I have seen in the local thrift shops, yet the antique dealers turn their nose up when you mention thrifting like thrift items are a totally different thing.
When they simply go thrifting to find items at the low thrift store price mark it up put it in a fancy booth.
When I visit Fernandina beach I don't pass up dropping in to see the folks at the National Humane Society Thrift Store.
It's been 2 years since I had been to Fernandina, when I dropped in the thrift store and realized that they have added a new CLOSET store, which has higher end brands. I enjoyed chatting with the lovely ladies and friendly gents at both stores. Needless to say I scored some goodies at BOTH. Scored 2 pairs of shoes and a nice necklace at the Closet and an awesome leather brief case at the store! I love ThriftTrippN at NHS thrift stores
In July I scored a pair of Prada shoes for $1.39 a pound a the GOODWILL OUTLET in Savannah Ga. I had been hearing about Goodwill Outlets, but had never been able to find one . Just so happens I mentioned to a fellow thrifter that I was heading to Savannah w few days she says you gotta go to the Goodwill Outlet while you are there. The morning I was leaving out of Savannah I decided to Google it. Luckily it was really close by,so I dropped in WOW, there were lots of goodies at $1.39 a pound . I scored a few pairs of shoes and some clothing pieces, but the Prada shoes were the prize score of the day .
In August I was heading to checkout a Farm Market when I noticed a Thrift Store on my way past. It was in Byron as I was headed to Montezuma to William Brown's Farm market. Any thrifter knows that I could not pass back by it and not stop.
After I had gotten some garden fresh goodies at the farm market. I stopped back in the the lil shop . Ms. Ethel's Thrift and More neat lil place loaded with nice pieces that were nicely displayed.. Lots of new with tags at great prices ( clothes shoes, jewelry kids clothes and MORE as promised. I didn't get to meet Ms. Ethel , she was at her home hosting a Mega yard sale but her sister was really nice and helpful. I can't wait to go again. You should drop in too, it's located in Byron right off the interstate,
This past weekend two friends and I decided to met up with our dear friend Angela in Columbus Ga.
Angela traveled from Montgomery Alabama. We decided on Columbus because it was equal travel distance drive for us all, and great spot for a quick girl’s day trip.
Our day was planned by the planner of the group Lauralen, she had our day laid out starting with a great brunch at BARE ROOTS FARMACY farm to table restaurant*** it was delish. Of course the tip would not have been complete without visits to a couple of consignment shops as a treat to me.
One of the shops was called SECOND TIME AROUND * Consignment Boutique,
It was a nice shop, great visual layout, with some and nice selection of designer brand inventory .They were having 30 - 50 % off SALE our salesperson Peggy was very pleasant, Maureen snagged a few pairs of earrings and I snagged a great Brahmin wallet for $34.00 . YESS I said $34.00
Next time you visit Columbus go by 2211 Manchester Pkwy and shop with the ladies of Second Time Around Consignment .
We ended our day with a trip to the RIVER WALK then off we went to try some delicious goodies from KILWINS a local chocolate/ice cream shop .
I enjoyed #ThriftTripping and eating in Columbus Georgia * I can’t wait to go again and explore more thrift and resale stores.
