This Thrifted Thursday features some superb steals I acquired from St. Vincent de Paul, especially this vintage vinyl that I discovered. Read more after the jump to see just how much these records set me back, as well as other, great finds from that trip after the jump!

I hit the jackpot when I found this Journey “Escape” vinyl ($0.75) for just three-quarters of a dollar. Journey is classic rock royalty, guys! And this record has some jams on it, including the karaoke favorite “Don’t Stop Believin,'” “Who’s Crying Now” and “Open Arms.”

Foreigner’s “4” vinyl ($0.75) contains such hits as “Urgent” and “Waiting for a Girl Like You” — honestly, the first songs that come to mind when I think of the band led by Mick Jones.

The hits just kept on coming, as I found Eddie Money’s self-titled debut album ($0.75). It features “Baby Hold On,” released in 1978 as the lead single. The album also features another Money banger, “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Don’t let that come on while I’m in the car! I goes in (air tambourine and all)!

Closing out my mini vinyl haul is this Billy Squier “Emotions in Motion” album ($0.75), his third, which includes the braggadiocious “Everybody Wants You.”

How cute is this Hawlowe & Graham striped jacket ($9.99)? It was a red tag item, which was half off that day. I would have paid $20, which still isn’t that bad, but man was I happy to get it for even less dinero. I can’t wait to pair it with some black denim, a statement necklace and d’orsay flats for a contemporary twist on the power suit.

This oversized vintage sweater ($5.99) is making the cold weather tolerable. Did you see the detail with the cut-outs throughout? I live!

Grand total: $18.98
