Killer Deal.

Some of you may be aware that I have joined the Junior League of Charlotte. If you aren't familiar with the organization- it's a group for women who want to make a difference in their communities. Anyway- part of being a "provisional" (think, sorority pledge) is to work 30 hours in the JLC Warehouse. I've been working many Friday afternoons to fulfill my requirement.... almost every time I've worked, I've come away with something awesome. It's kinda like a goodwill, but with way nicer stuff.

Here's a rundown of the things I've purchased:

1. Black, dressy jacket. I actually wore this to a black-tie, charity event I worked a few weeks ago for the league. I think I paid $20 for it.
2. Black & white trench coat. I think it's originally from Wal-Mart (it's that George brand) but it's actually really cute, and I get complements on it each time I wear it! $10
3. I hit the jackpot last Friday... all "thrift" items (as opposed to the consignment stuff) is now 60% off. (each week it goes up 10% and in 2 weeks, it will be dollar days, when everything is marked way down! Anyway... I was thumbing through the dresses... there it was.... a vintage dress, circa 1965. Mint condition.... marked $9.... but at that point it was 50% off.... so $4.50!!!!!!!!!

I tried it on- fit perfect! Michelle, the store manager, suggested it would look great with a big brown belt & boots. I agree. I am going to have it hemmed so that it's a mini dress :-)

Here's the quick iPhone photo I took on Friday night :-)  (it has a matching belt hanging from the hanger)

Below is kinda how I imagine the dress looking!

JLC Warehouse  $4.50

...... Now I just need a girls night with yummy cocktails....


  1. I love the Junior League Warehouse store! And I've really been wanting to join the organization. Do you know when their next "joining period" is?

    P.S. If you're ever up for a girl's night with cocktails, just let me know! ;)

  2. The next provisional class will be this fall (probably this summer will be the info session) I'll be glad to sponsor you :-)

    And yes, lets do cocktails!
