American Apperal sale for Flies.


Best cashiers at the sale, displaying my "Gift with Purchase"...I know...It was free OK!

YA! BAGS OF CLOTHES! Alright, before I explain the photos above, I want you to put your self in my shoes (at the time I was wearing Jones New York Combat Boots;)). If you walked into 500 square feet of clothes that were up to 85% off, what would you do and where would you start? Don't know? NEITHER DID I!!! On May 8, I set out to try and under take the task of rummaging through clothes at an American Apparel Flea Market Sale. The two-day sale started at 10 am and ended at 8 pm and was re-stalked every few hours. Lets just say I was in the lower level of the store fighting people off from my treasure-like stack of clothes for too many hours! With sweat running down my brow due to the heat of the large amount of people vigorously going through clothes, I managed to find some outrageously cheap and eccentric pieces. So, the break down of some of my favorite buys: three California Select Vintage dresses $10 each, California Select Vintage riding pants $10, Neon pink Gloria V body suit $12, Silver high waisted Hot Short $5, and "SELF SERVICE F/W 07" coffee table book for $4. Don't worry everyone, I spent all of my saved up money on these extremely necessary things:) I hope if there is ever a flea market sale near you, you attend for your benefit. I know I would go again in a heart beat.

I feel like I'm going crazy when items have 50% discount... what more if the discount is 85%. Gaaah! I won't mind the sweat or my tiredness, as long as I can get great buys it'll all be worth it. :)

Looks like you had some great finds!! I was not so lucky when I tried to go to a sale like that in London but it had to be cancelled by the police because people started rioting on the streets...scary stuff!
