I have been a thrift junkie for years; church sales, thrift stores, estate sales….you name it I’m there. My love of thrift started young, with my aunt who uses to take me to garage sales on Saturdays as a kid. On those trips is where I learned to hone my thrifting style; I’m what you would call a fast thrifter, in and out, then on to the next. Since I’m a speed thrifter I have found it easier at times to fly solo, nothing can torture me like going with a slowie, someone who has to look and touch everything like five times to only buy the two items they picked up in the first five minutes. If I was ever a spy, this would be a successful technique to get me to spill my secrets.
Recently I have discovered a great partner in crime, my fiancé! I don’t know how I scored a guy that likes to thrift, has a keen eye, AND who isn’t a slowie. (Cha-Ching!) We try to get out early on Saturdays for the most part, and sometimes it actually works! (I perpetually run late which drives him nuts) On the rare occasion there is a particularly awesome sale I’m up early (for me) rushing around all the while screaming “Someone is buying my stuff!” (Ok well not screaming it…I’m not a crazy person after all. Geez )
This weekend…was a lazy weekend, but still fruitful. Here are my pickings to share:
