My thrifty finds of the week.

In the past year, I have fallen back in love with thrift shopping.  I took a long break, mainly because in Kansas I was tired of the same old vintage shops.  Since moving to Chicago, I have found a few that have easily become my favorites.  I got a raise at work so I've been celebrating too much by shopping...  here are some of my finds from this week:

One of my favorite shops is Clothes Optional in Lakeview.  They don't have a website, but the people on Yelp have some good things to say.  I always seem to find something there, even if it is small.  This week I found this great blue sweater will a back zip for only $15.
Another one of my favorites is Brownstone Antiques in my 'hood of Andersonville.  They have a ton of antiques and a tiny corner packed with vintage clothing and accessories.  Today I scored a fuzzy beret, wool plaid scarf, and a pin for $11.  They always have so much to look at and can sometimes be overwhelming, but it is totally worth it.
I love these stores, but I do need to see what else there is out there.  So next time, I will report back with thrifty finds from another store...hopefully!
