Shopping Haul – St. Vincent de Paul

Brokedown Vanity - SH - St Vincent di Paul - 1

Just a short one this weekend. I like to take the kids to our local St. Vincent de Paul(which is kind of like a Goodwill/Value Village/Salvation Army type thing). I don’t often find seals items for beauty products, thought I did find some sealed The Body Shop Giftset stuff a few times, and some unused nail polishes.

Well I found some stuff of interest this time around. Both still has factory seals on them(which I have since taken off).

First up is a product I have seen at Winners before. Mon Petite Paradis Shower Cream. I got this for a$1CAD. I know I have seen it for about $$8.00 at winners. This is an in shower moisturizer, which is something I have been wanting to find for a while now. I also like green tea, so I am excited to give this a go.

Secondly was this Hair Serum from Mixed Chicks. I have always used products meant for multicultural hair types, as my hair does react similarly at times. I was once told by a hair dresser I would have better results if I stopped buying stuff made for Caucasian hair.

She said it is because my hair grows in both round and flat forms, on the same strand, which causes my curls to react in different ways, and they stuff in drugstores just isn’t formulated to deal with that.

While I tried to fight my hair for so long, I have this year embraced my rather unruly curls, and do find that multicultural products work best for me.

I can’t wait to see what this stuff does to me hair. Lets hope it is good!

I thought I’d throw in a bonus. I found a bunch of scrapbooking supplies too. I don’t scrapbook or anything, but I thought some of the cards might be nice in photos for the blog. I also thought it would be good for pocket letters, as that is something I’d really like to get into. I just need to find a pocket penpal first, somehow, haha.

There was the full packs above, then all these loose ones. It was about 100 loose cards. The packs were full, unused. I got the lot for $5.00CAD. A steal, considering that the price on the back of those packs said anywhere between $3.99 to $6.99.

They are all nice and thick, which I like. I will probably sort though the loose ones and give some to my daughter to make stuff out of.

We got a bunch of stickers too, but the kids already got into them, so no photos there, haha.

    1. I don’t find much at other shops, but probably because they are bigger. This St. Vincent is just a little country one(though they did have a big one in the city I grew up in I’d go to for semi-formal dresses and things).

      They always have lots of packages soaps, handcreams, body mists. Things like that. Have a lot of gift kits around xmas. Perfumes too. You just really have to look at the items, and try to figure out how old they are and if they are tampered with.

      They are good at not putting out used makeup.

      They do put half bottles of nail polish out sometimes.

      I’ve even seen a full on Avon Lady Cosmetics Kit, like the kind the sellers go around with, with all the little nooks for the samples and everything. Someone must have decided not to sell Avon anymore.

      I often get nail files for my daughter there too, as they will have unopened packs of different grits, for like $0.25CAD. We even found nail stickers a few times.

      We always have a great time in there.

      Got really lucky with finding those scrapbooking items. Some of the designs really are great. It makes me almost not want to use some of them, but then what would be the point to having them, haha.
