Thrift stores can be an amazing place to find bargains of all kinds, from the practical to the whimsical. One of my favorite finds is an authentic 1980s Gunne Sax prom dress. It’s wispy, floor-length, and ethereal—now if I only had an event to wear it to! I have a friend who collects dinner plates with cats on them and jello molds. You can imagine my surprise to see his jello mold of Queen Elizabeth II.
