Ugly Christmas Sweaters




Ugly Christmas sweaters, oddly enough, have become a part of all the Christmas festivities. At almost every Christmas party you attend there will surly be someone wearing a hideous Christmas Sweater that everyone will love. Most big box retailers have ugly sweaters available during the holidays but it’s no fun buying them there, unless you want the same sweater everyone else will have. At Sunshine Thrift you can find unique ugly sweaters that will help you stand out and also help you save money. The ugly sweaters at Sunshine Thrift range from $6-$20 depending on the quality and uniqueness.


Secret Santa Gifts




Finding the right secret Santa gift can get tricky. You want to get something nice but you also can not go over the budget. So, what do you do? Visit your neighborhood thrift store and find the perfect gift that won’t break the bank. At Sunshine Thrift you can find quality name brand watches, purses and other cool miscellaneous items that are in great condition (like new) and are very reasonably priced. For example, the Betty Boop purse above is only $15, the Citizen Eco watch is priced at only $40 and the brand-new flying LED Ball is only $5. You cannot beat these prices and they are perfect for a gift. Come find you secret Santa gifts at Sunshine Thrift.


Holiday Decorations




What’s the Holidays without a house, room or office space fully decorated for Christmas? One very cool thing about Sunshine Thrift stores is the very big miscellaneous selection for Christmas decorations. You can find almost anything, from full size Santa’s, to small snow globes and everything in between. Christmas items start as low as $0.40!

Holiday Fashion On A Budget


Holiday Fashion on a Budget

It’s December which means the invitations to Holiday parties and festivities will be rolling in. Everything from office parties, ugly sweater parties, and New Year’s Eve. While we all enjoy spending this time with our family and friends between the gift giving and holiday celebrations this can leave you a little strapped for cash. Luckily Sunshine Thrift has some amazing options to get you holiday-ready on a budget.

Office Holiday Party

At your office holiday party, you want to look festive but not inappropriate. After all, these are your work peers and superiors you don’t want them referencing your scandalous outfit well into 2019.

This look strikes the perfect balance of festiveness and appropriateness. The plaid button front top is a huge trend this season. The green wool blazer adds structure and keeps you warm if the temps dip, while the black leather skirt lends some toughness. Paired with these sweet ASOS patent leather loafers you can dance and mingle with your colleagues all night.

If you’re like me and want to still look fabulous in your ugly sweater pair it with bottoms you love like some cool denim, a leather skirt or leather leggings. This with a pair of great heels is the combination of a perfect ugly sweater party look.
