Thrifting for Treasure: My Latest Steeple People Thrift Haul

Reblogged from BeingZhenya.com
Steeple People (in uptown Minneapolis) will probably be my favorite, number one, go to store when it comes to a thrifting quickie! It’s only 10 minutes away from my house (WALKING!), the prices are incredibly reasonable, and there is always a great chance of scoring something vintage! They also carry fabrics, which is what I was looking for!
I ended up walking away with a bag full of stuff, which included Corso Como boots, a vintage dress, and 3 pieces of fabric, one of which has already been transformed into something amazing!

Here are the fabrics:

50 cents of wool

$3 of black and navy blue fabrics ($1.50 each, though the navy blue one has more yards!)

A $6 pair of Corso Como black leather boots! I wasn’t going to get them, but after looking the brand up on my phone (another reason to have a smart phone when thrifting!) and seeing how much those would’ve cost me at Nordstrom, I couldn’t put them down!

And finally a $2 100% silk Anne Crimmins for Umi Collections dress (it will be featured in one of my upcoming refashion posts), and I am already putting together outfits featuring this dress in my head :)

    1. Me too! I have another haul coming up probably on Tuesday! Also, I know you call thrift stores op shops in Australia, does op stand for anything?

    2. I'm almost certain that the 'op' in op shop stands for opportunity (:
