As I was on my way for some groceries at Ranch 99 in Sacramento in the stormy spring rain, I miraculously stumbled upon a Goodwill outlet. I had been craving some thrifting but with my stomach growling only dinner was on my mind.

However.. when I saw the neon painted windows that screamed ‘$1.89 per lb’ for clothes… I srsly screeched into the parking lot and ran inside!! I’m normally very comfortable with thrift stores since my mom has been a thriftier since I was a baby on Mission street in the city. However – this outlet was a little bit of a shocker.

Huge bins FILLED to the top with items and people wearing face masks, gloves and all digging through the bins to find goodies. Of course, I jumped in. But next time, I’ll prob wear my cleaning clothes b/c I felt pretty gross when I left.

It was all worth it though because I found tons of awesome things including 2 dresses, 3 shirts, 2 shirts for my niece, one shirt for my sister, one shirt for Kellen, a lamp shade here, fabric for my lamp shade here and 2 new pieces of art… all for $8!! That’s what? Like 60 cents an item! I’ll take it!!

One of the items I found was this super mumu sea shell dress! I just loved the fabric and saw the potential.. so I sewed it to a perfect fit!!
