On our way back home one day, we stopped at the Salvation Army in Loris and I was genuinely surprised at what I found. This will be one to revisit multiple times this year because first, it’s close to home and second, I bought three brand name items for under $11, and third, it was a prime example of a great second-hand store .

The store was small, but the layout did not make it crowded. The clothing was very organized by gender, by style and by color. Organization is key to shopping at a second-hand store. The pants even had sizes on the sides, do you don’t have to dig in the back of the pants to figure it out. At the time, they didn’t have a big shoe selection, but the shirt and sweater selection was wonderful. You can never have enough cardigan sweaters. I was very pleased with the visit and look forward to going back soon.

I bought the following:

Brooks Brothers cardigan sweater – $3.50

Orange Dress – $3.99

Old Navy jean jacket – $3.50

TOTAL SPENT = $10.99 (plus tax)
