Thrift stores in small towns are a whole different beast. They have their drawbacks to be sure. My local thrift store is open Wednesday through Saturday from the incredibly inconvenient hours of 9am-2pm. This has actually not really been a problem for me, but if I were still working it would drive me completely nuts. But let me tell you a secret about small town thrift stores, the prices are really good. Shirts are $1, skirts are $2, shoes are $1.50. This is the stuff budget dreams are made of.
I spotted this shirt before Christmas and was immediately drawn to it. I am, of course, a sucker for stripes. But I also really liked the boat neckline and shoulder detail. It was also clear that the shirt was well-made, didn't require an undershirt, and would never pill.

Unfortunately it fit me a little weird at the bust/armpits. So, I deconstructed the shirt, trimmed a few places, and put it back together again.
This shirt is a major player in my wardrobe these days.
Have you thrifted anything lately? What are the prices like at your local thrift store?
