Ahhh...the last Wednesday of the month...time for my favorite bi-monthly sporting event: 50% Off Day at Show & Sell Ohio Thrift! This is one of my all-time favorite thrift stores. It's massive and always well-organized and very clean. I also appreciate how they merchandise new items and create trend displays on a weekly basis. Every other Wednesday Show & Sell offers 50-75% off storewide and I take this venture very seriously. I get there when the doors open at 9 am and almost always have sort of game plan in terms of what I'm looking for at the moment and tackle those sections first (there can be some pretty stiff competition on 50% day). If you're anything like me, you've been patiently marking off the days on your 7th-grade Leonardo DiCaprio calender, waiting for May 10th- the day that will forever go down in history as the day "The Great Gatsby" came to a theatre near me. Anyway, my intense, over-excitement regarding this film was definitely on my mind as I took off thrifting in search of an art deco beaded tank, a la Daisy Buchanan.
I was thrilled to find this black scoop-neck top, with black beading around the neckline and a repeating gold bead pattern throughout. I also found this adorable silk Ecco scarf with a pink and black ballerina print and vintage black beaded dangling earrings that are truly one-of-a-kind. But the cherry on top of this Gatsby sundae is definitely the price...$10!! Man, I love 50% off day.
So, all-in-all a successful day thrifting and $10 well spent! If you are as excited as I am about "The Great Gatsby," check out my upcoming trend report and diy project centering around the Gatsby trend in the next few days!
