Reader Mailbag: Thrift store victory!



janiceskirt_0.jpgWe love a good success story!

Today's letter comes from reader Janice Taylor, who had shopping luck after reading our post about Sunshine Thrift in St. Petersburg. We'll let her do the talking:

Hello Divas,
I am not a thrift or consignment store shopper, envisioning sifting through piles of merchandise I would never consider wearing. However, when I read your recent post about this store and realized it was close to where I live, I stopped in.

I IMMEDIATELY spotted this just above-the-knee Willi Smith skirt with coordinating scarf belt — and it fit! Total cost: $4.77, including tax. It was not on sale.

I consider it a year round Florida garment; sandals and tank in warm weather, tights and long sleeves in cold. Sadly, it was the only skirt I found in the thirty minutes I spent looking at every skirt I could find. The rest were either very short, very long, very small, very big, or very something else I didn’t like. I’ll stop in again, though, now that I know where it is.

AWESOME, Janice. It's super cute. Thanks for reading!

Have the Deal Divas led you to a good deal? Let us know and we'll post it!
