Flea Markets, Thrift Stores,...

I love haunting the thrift stores.I also enjoy flea markets and the "every thing is a dollar" stores. I went the other day to a place called Name Brand Clothing. Most thrift stores don't usually carry my size ( 3 to 4X and 26/28 pants- and that is after losing 13 pounds! ) that the pants legs don't look like they were cut in the time of high water so I go to NBC. They carry clothing they bought in lots from clothing stores and catalog marketers; just look them over real good for pulled threads, bad zippers. sewing mistakes, dye goofs, and tears. Since I was down to 3 pairs of slacks with the seat rather thread bare in all of them I had to go. I was able to get 1 bra, 2 Roman's brand tops, and 3 pairs of slacks for $36.85. I also saw a beautiful dress for $12.00! I'll keep watching for a clearance sale, but I do miss their $.99 sale store
