I have always been one for post-Christmas sales. For around 5 years running, I would go to our local shopping centre, Meadowhall, for when it opened on Boxing day. We would have a few hours shopping and would then trundle off home with many bargains, mainly clothes and Christmas items. Last year, I did the sales on December 26th but did them online, in my pyjamas with a cup of tea to hand.
This year I didn’t do any shopping on Boxing Day…AT ALL!! But I did go a few days later 😀
I took our Mums up to my local Joanns Fabric & Craft store. I actually didn’t think that there would be much left as it was 5 days after Christmas. However, we had a good search and found some great buys that I have just got to share with you!
I love the look of vintage blown decorations. I found these remakes at $2!!
These little cross stitch patterns had been reduced to 97 cents.
These buttons had been reduced to 97 cents too.
After digging around in a discount basket a little longer, I then found these sweet little button packets for 50 cents!
I also picked up this bundle of fat quarters for 97 cents each, the patterned card stock and the washi tapes($2)! BARGAINS!!
A couple of days later, we headed to our local outlet mall. I did well again and managed to scout out some more bargains. I have a slight obsession at the moment with the Tommy Hilfiger shop as their dresses are gorgeous and very affordable if you buy them from the outlet. The last one I bought has washed so well and it feels new every time I wear it. I went in the other day and found 3 dresses at $9.99 EACH! Reduced from $80-90!!! I am trying to get my wardrobe as vintage inspired as possible…even with any new items I buy. All of these hit the mark perfectly. 😀
This long sleeved dress also caught my eye and was still a bargain at $19.99!

Some fabulous bargains there, lucky you! I bought a Christmas scene with moving ice dancers and train at half price – that’s the only ‘sales’ shopping I’ve done:)
Great buys! I do love a bargain, but have been most restrained this year, so far…. Thoses dresses look great on you and were a great buy 🙂
You definitely have more patience for rummaging than me, but I am truly envious of all of the bargains you have uncovered! Well done for persevering and I am looking forward to seeing some of them in use in upcoming makes!
I did have to have quite a good rummage in the baskets but I am looking forward to using them next Christmas already!
