What I Bought: Dirt Cheap shopping......

This weekend, the hubby and I took a drive over to Fort Lauderdale to do a little fleamarket shopping. While in the area, we stopped over to the recently opened  Dirt Cheap store. They carry clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares, etc. It kinda reminds me of a liquidation store we have here in town called Price Cutters, but better and cleaner.  I've also heard some people compare it to Big Lots, but I didn't get a Big Lots vibe from it.

They had a wide selection of clothing and most of them were priced under $25. A lot of it were hit or miss, but if you look hard enough, you may find a few gems. I saw a few pairs of Lucky Brand jeans (none in my size, of course) priced for $29.99.  


I spotted a couple of racks of the Neiman Marcus for Target holiday collection from last year for 80% off. The sequined Tracy Reese top was $16!



I also spotted these Marc Jacobs metallic pouches from the Neiman Marcus for Target collection. They were $13.99 (after discount).  

Now on to my mini haul......


My back was killing me and I was starving while in the store, so I didn't get to look as thoroughly as I wanted to. I picked up this Thom Browne men's nautical inspired blazer from the NM for Target collection.  It was $11.99 (originally priced at $150!). They had the women's version of this blazer, but I didn't like how it fit on me.  I also picked up this Proenza Schouler Ipad sleeve for $2.99 (also from the NM for Target collection).  Now this is what I don't understand.  These two items were marked down with Dirt Cheap's green tag when they should've been marked down to 80% off the retail selling price like the rest of the NM for Target stuff.  These green tag prices are actually cheaper than if they were marked down the 80% off (blazer would've been $29.99, Ipad sleeve would've been $9.99).  I don't know if this was some sort of pricing snafu or what, but I'm not complaining.  I like these prices better (lol).  Next time I'm in the area, I'll check out Dirt Cheap again, and make sure I shop on a full stomach and have a painless back.

OMG so jealous! I wish we had a store like that here in DC or in the metro area. Stores in the district are just so darn expensive. I'll have to do a Google search. Is it a chain?
