I love thrifting. We found this amazing thrift store in Lakewood that I try to go to once a week. There are so many great things I have found at this store. I have found some amazing vintage fabrics (a new love of mine), a retro cookie jar, a pair of Seven for All Mankind jeans, some faux Birkenstock clogs for Blake, some retro Pyrex bowls like these, a wonderful wool blanket that keeps me warm when I work at 5:00 in the morning, and today, I found some great children's' books.
It's like a game to me as I quickly dash to my favorite places in the store where I have found the best treasures. I often wonder what the other patrons of the thrift store are looking for....is there something on the shelf that is worth a ton of money and I have no clue? Are they looking for something they might have lost are maybe something that reminds them of someone who is now gone. I just love thrifting. Not only is it good for the environment (ahem, recycling), but it is good on my bank account, and I am entertained by the other thrifters at the same time. For those of you who do not thrift...give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.
