The Thrill of the $2 Dress!

It was my lucky day on Sunday when I walked into 2Dollar Thrill in Ocean Beach… and walked out with a fabulous $2 dress! I was there mostly as a “looky-loo” and had a strict shopping list in mind– if I didn’t find what I was looking for no deal.   I’ve been in the market for summer dresses and casual jewelry and walked into 2Dollar Thrill seriously hoping to find a dress.  And wow– I found a really cute summer dress with a colorful flower print.  And at $2 how can you go wrong?

Also, check out the cute beaded bracelet I found- also $2. My good luck… I walked out of there with a bracelet on my wrist and a dress– and spent a whopping $4.31 including tax. Bravo! For sure, I’ll be back!

I'm going to blog about my many shopping escapades. Whether it is a used book store, a thrift shop or a consignment shop-- I'm here to tell all about my experiences. When I find great stuff-- I'll let you know. I'm sending good karma to all the thrifty shoppers out there!

      1. Thanks, its very thoughtful of you to go over the fence 🙂 Appreciate it and look forward to more of your posts. Hugs from this side of the world

  1. Oh my goodness, that is a beautiful dress! I need to find better cosignment shops in Columbus, for sure. I have a few reliable thrift stores, but your finds are always so fun and modern! Love it!

    1. We have some good consignment and thrift stores here in San Diego. This weekend I’m planning to branch out to some different neighborhoods to see what I can find. Stay tuned….

  2. I love this! I saw a dress similar to this the other day and it was retailing for $69 (Canadian, mind you, but still). I’d love it if there was a two-dollar store somewhere in Toronto- or if there is, I haven’t figure out where it is yet!
