Rummage Reclaim

 Super Sweet Santa Cruz Score

I am so excited about the score I got in Santa Cruz this weekend. I don't go to garage sales that often, but when my parents and I saw the sign for a church rummage sale we decided to go ahead and check it out. Best decision ever! 

I got everything above for $30! Clothing items were only $1 each! I found a few things I've been hoping to receive for weeks, black trousers and tweet jackets & skirts. I love the little animal print footstools; one for me and I just had to get one for my friend Nani. AND the cute tiger print suitcase, and the white drawer unit!!! Hello this is the best rummage sale ever!

I can't believe how much amazing fabric I've got to work with for $30. I can't wait to get home to attack all this great stuff. 

I think I might have lost one of the pants scores to my sister though. I found a great pair of striped pants, the lady selling them told me she paid $200 for them on sale. I got them for $1!!! But, they fit my 6' tall sister perfectly. I know she was wearing them earlier, now I don't see them anywhere...

As a side note, I also went to Harts Fabric to pick up some material for a custom order. Harts in Santa Cruz is one of the best fabric stores I have ever been to. I could easily spend a fortune there. It's not cheap, I spent $17.25 on what equates to about 1 1/2 yards of fabric. The rummage sale was a MUCH better deal, plus I love the challenge of upcycling one person's 'trash' into another's treasure!

Love this little storage score!
