Hi all! Today I reached 200 followers on this Fancy Frugal blog of mine! Thanks to Angie from Thrifty Like Me for pointing out she was my 200th! very cute blog by the way…check it out 🙂 And thanks to all of you out there for the sweet comments and support over the last few months. I am new and still learning, but loving every bit! And by the way still a little sad I missed out on that Creative Estates blogging conference that was here this past weekend! Boo-maybe next time?!
To celebrate I am revealing the my 3 top fav thrift stores in my area (Phoenix-Ahwatukee). many have asked and now I am spilling! lol We moved back to the Phoenix area after a 2.5 yrs in Las Vegas and I am now addicted to thrifting. I think it is because I am a bargain hunter at heart and am constantly challenging myself to spend less while still loving nice quality stuff!
1. Goodwill (32nd St & Chandler Blvd) 15633 S 32nd St Phoenix, AZ
(I call this one my super secret hidden GW because it is never crowded and very “unshopped”. They separate the designer clothes and its always clean.) This is 5 min from me so I am here at least 3 times a week! Most of my finds are from here. You should see the nice furniture that comes through here!
2. Goodwill (32nd st & Cactus Rd) 12010 N. 32nd St, Phoenix
This is a brand new location! And it rocks!!! It’s super big and clean. I just discovered it last weekend and found a Gap dress, 2 shirts and 2 skirts for less that $14.00!!
This store is super fun and the prices are fantastic. It is a treasure hunt for sure, but clean and people are nice. They have an entire rack of Tommy Bahama men’s shirts at $5.00 each. I bought 3 and one still had original tags ($96.00 originally).
So there you go!! Leave some stuff for me 🙂 I am the one with the screaming 2 year old!
Also did you know there are 20% off coupons for Goodwill of AZ? Go here to sign up! Every other Sat the whole store is 50% off!
Most of my thrifty projects are purchases from these stores, but here are some pics of the many great finds in just the last few months!
Burberry dress shirt (with dry cleaner tags!) $6.00. Doesn’t he look thrilled? hehe
And here are those $5.00 Tommy Bahama Shirts
Those great wall sconces $10.00 each.
Baby Gap lot 5 pieces $14.00
Gymboree skirt & hat $4.00
New looking Spiderman bike for G man $6.00
Hope this is helpful!
