Thrift Score Thursday

Hey all! Happy Thursday!

By now you’ve probably figured out that I LOVE thrifting. Whether it’s the prices, the fact that buying used is SO much better than buying new, or just the thrill of the hunt, It’s one of my favorite hobbies. :)

So, each Thursday, I’m going to show you my haul for the week, as well as the interesting things I find – but for various reasons choose to leave behind.

This week was a bit of alright!

It’s Curtains for You, Sweetheart.

If you scrounge in the same ¬†bottom of the bin thrift stores I do, you can’t help but notice a large quantity of curtain panels. Some are with their mates, and some fly solo, but they’re always there…crumpled in the bins at the $1 a pound Goodwill Clearance Centers (and other similar establishments), waiting to be chosen.

Of course, if you already like your existing drapes, you probably pass these over. But at less than $1 a pop…perhaps you should follow the lead of one enterprising young lady and rethink that.

Until today. Last night, temps finally plummeted to winter-appropriate levels. :/ I pulled my porch plants inside and shrugged. It was time. While I hate being cold more than anything in the entire world, I LOVE wearing warm, cuddly, fleece-lined things. :)

Sooooo cooooomfy!

Kimono Klashing

Yippee! We’ve made it to Day 4! Only 362 days to go! :)

As I mentioned before, I score a lot of fun things in my thrifting & vintage shopping adventures that require no additional help/alterations whatsoever. One of my favorite things is pairing them together in as many interesting ways as possible.

A Glorious Gusset Refashion with Shanika

A question I get a lot is, “How can I resize something to make it bigger?”

This is something I don’t have to do a lot…not because I’m some gloriously limbsome supermodel, but rather because I’m short and scrawny. :)

Proof.

Please don’t step on me.
