Well well well…I’ve almost made it through my first month back on the blog! I’ve gotta say, I didn’t realize how much I had missed it until I came back to it. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. While I can’t always respond to them, just know they’re very appreciated. 🙂
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.
