thrift store finds

Best Thrift Store Purchase Ever

 One of the first questions I get asked when people find out about my thrift blog is what’s the best thing you’ve ever found at a thrift store? It’s always so hard to narrow it down. For years, I would joke and say that’s like asking me to choose a favorite child – until I found this coat. I can now respond, without any reservations, that this Plenty by Tracy Reese coat is the best thrift store purchase I’ve ever made. It’s a thick cozy coat that keeps my neck warm, stretches to hug every curve, and only cost $18.  It’s a well made coat and is still available online for $340.
Update! After I posted this blog, a friend of mine sent me a picture of this coat in Orange is the New Black. Check it out here

  • What VDO do you go to? The one in Akron or the Falls? That is an awesome coat

  • That is a gorgeous coat and lucky you!

  • Hi Danielle. I go to both regularly. This particular coat was from the Falls.

  • This coat is so awesome, very you!! Especially with the shoes, so cute. Good eye, such an unbelievable deal! 🙂


  • Whaaaat, I cant believe that coat is still on sale for nearly $400! Now THAT is an impressive find. But also, who the heck got rid of that piece? Crazy rich people, haha. That's such a fun coat- I love those poppy colors. I can't resist some color blocking 🙂
