Thrifting these days…

I’m not able to go thrifting as much as I’d like these days, given the big “C” (I’m honestly tired of saying/hearing it’s name!) However, I’m so thankful that our stores are open and available, as I know this is not the case across our nation. Being able to mask up and escape for some “me time” at our local Goodwill truly is my escape! Thrifting is my happy place and my thrifted finds fuel my creativity!

Thrifting Haul

This trip I actually ended up purchasing more clothing than home decor, which is not the norm for me. I took a risk, as changing rooms are not available for use, but for $25 I got an adorable denim dress from the Gap, three Madewell shirts and a super cool vintage Colorado t-shirt that I adore! And well, I washed them all and they fit perfectly! Completely worth the risk, and hey… worst case scenario… they didn’t fit and I helped out a non-profit that I frequent, so truly I couldn’t lose!

I think I might go back to shopping more of my clothing a Goodwill… it honestly is slightly addicting! The deals are just too good and each of the pieces I bought can transition so easily from Summer to Fall. It opens up a whole new thrill of the hunt!!

The one home decor piece I thrifted

Lastly, I purchased an antique spoon display, for which I have a really fun DIY up my sleeve! Stay tuned for that coming soon and happy thrifting!
