I hope everyone had a fantastic Independence day, I know I did!. I have recently delved into the sport of what is known in the fashion bloggers world as thrifting. It is shopping for gently used items in a thrift or resale store such as Goodwill or Unique Thrift. I call it a sport because it takes oodles of patience, time and tenacity to sort through what is for the most part junk to find a diamond in the rough. But all the cool bloggers are doing it, so I decided to give it a try and see what I could find. I have to admit on my first foray, I struck personal gold, although I didn’t stick with T Minus, T Plus, $10 challenge, I didn’t go over $50 for several items of apparel. I found dresses, a handbag (which is alluding to be Prada, still researching that) and a lovely cotton kimono that will one day make an appearance on this blog as something other than a robe. I am giddy with excitement on when I can go on my next hunt. I have always loved a good bargain but this is a new thrill that peaks my curiosity. I have officially joined the ranks of thrifters everywhere…make room for a newbie, lol.
