Salvation Army Brat!

I'm officially a Salvation Army Brat!
I discovered the Salvation Army in NYC at
536 West 46th St.
I happened to pass by this place Friday Night on my way to Hudson Terrace.
This place is HUUUUUUUGE! I went in at 3pm I left at 5pm with a large bag of goodies.
I scored 7 items( 2 dresses, 1 skirt, 1 pair of pants, 1 blazer, 1 sequin blouse and a necklace)
for
$52 bucks
and one of the dresses was a Marc Jacobs dress!
If you live in New York City, RUN DONT WALK TO THIS PLACE!!!!
The selection of items is AMAZING!
The Salvation Army is an international, faith-based charitable organization with a simple mission:
 to help those in need without discrimination.
Headquartered in London—from a building at the foot of the Millennium Bridge—The Salvation Army serves in 118 countries and has an extensive presence in the United States.
 Up 2 flights of stairs and I arrived in HEAVEN!

BELOW ARE MY FASHION STEELE'S ON THE NIGHT
Got this Marc Jacobs dress for $9.99 Sweeeeeeet!

  7. I am completely green with envy. You totally have what me and my friend call the "thrift store mojo". That blazer is amaze. Like I can't even and that blouse is siiiiick!! I shop in thrift stores more than I do the mall and I cannot wait until I visit NY again so I can check the ones out there.

  26. Holy wow!!! I wish I lived by your Salvation Army. Lol. I keep going to the one in my town and I never find anything fabulous. Sigh. It's usually the smaller, independently owned thrift stores where I find the gems...

  29. thrift stores are my home away from home, definitly where you find the best deals! i always feel strange afterwards when i buy a 40$ dress when i got a very unique one for 6$ earlier, but thats the beauty of it! xxx

  30. I LOVE that Marc Jacobs dress. Oh my. If you came to Iowa and went to our Salvation Army all those things would cost you a whopping 25 bucks. However the likelihood of finding a MJ dress.. slim to none.

    Favorite thrifted find.. changes every time I go shopping.. for the most part.

    I have the best memories with my mom @ the salvation army! It was so much fun to find treasures, specially those cool accessories you find there! tons of fun, I totally recommend it.

  33. That is like a really clean Salvation Army. The ones here are just crappy. They smell really bad. Goodwill is way better here. You got some great deals. Those dresses and shirts are great.
