Thrifting and other means of second hand collecting has become a trendy activity among young adults during the past few years. Having been raised by parents who have always loved to thrift, flea, salvage, and repurpose, I decided to document the best of my past finds and all those to come. Enjoy :)
I haven’t forgotten about the blog!! I’ve just been busy moving and graduating from college. No big. ;) Anyway, I finally found time to get a few things ready to post, so here they go!
This is a cool vintage romper that came from my mom’s college wardrobe in the late 1970s. The print is Pacific Island themed, showing palm trees, flowers and people in small boats. It’s extra comfy and always awesome to take to the beach :)
Got this awesome one-size-fits-all top (which I wear as a dress) from the Goodwill on Wade Hampton Blvd in Greer, South Carolina about a year and a half ago. It it cost $4.95, and I plan to alter it slightly this summer (with my new sewing machine!!) to give it a waist band and officially make it a dress. :)
These Bass loafers came from Goodwill in Conyers, GA about 5 years ago, when I believe the shoe price was still $3.59. They had hardly been worn when I got them, but I’ve nearly worn them out in the time that I’ve had them!
I got this sweet little brooch out of a box of stuff that my dad brought home from the Covington Highway Flea Market in Lithonia, GA. It was in with a lot of other stuff (mostly junk) and was tangled up in old plastic wig hair, which I had to cut out. But it cleaned up well!
