I take thrifting very seriously. If thrifting were an olympic sport, I would win the gold medal every time. Thrifting is not a game. Thrifting is not just fun. Thrifting is a sport, not a strawberry social, y’all.
I am an aggressive thrifter. I know this. Decades of experience have helped me hone this skill into something that is almost an art form. I know which days to go to which stores. I know how to thrift a store in 15 minutes. I even have a weekly thrifting schedule. Other avid thrifters get it. It’s all about the thrill of the hunt. December was a month of culinary thrifting miracles. I found tons of Fiestaware, seemingly everywhere I looked. I scored a KitchenAid mixer for a song and I even found my own personal holy grail….er…holy dutch oven. I have wanted a Le Creuset dutch oven for at least…
When I purchased this verrrrrry short frock, my good pal Erin raised an eyebrow and said, “I think that’s meant for a small child”. I could help but think it would be just perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
In my most recent Thrift Score Thursday, I spent a pretty penny on the dress on the right. A few of you wanted to know why. $38 is way more than I usually spend on my vintage finds. Here’s why.
This week’s Thrift Score Thursday isn’t very thrifty, but it’s still pretty nifty. My favorite find this week was this cute little stovetop espresso maker for $2.50.
