Some Of My Best Thrift Finds Of All Times!! So Far!

Posted on

A true thrifter will tell you that the best part of the fun of thrifting is the challenge and the hunt for the great finds.  But also, it is finding that find…that perfect piece at a fantastic price.  The brag worthy piece that will have pride of place in your wardrobe.  These are just a few of my best and favourite finds so far.

Thrifting Trips and Refashions Will Be Back!!

Posted on

I have received lots of wonderful feedback for my questionnaire and have head that the thrifts and refashions are the most popular posts.  Unfortunately I am a casual employee so work can be scarce at times, as a result, even thrifting has to be dialled back in an effort to save money.  And even if I go thrifting, I don’t always find anything I want or need.  But never fear, there will be more coming.  Thank you to all of you who took your valuable time to answer my questions about what you would like to see on this blog.  That was incredibly kind of you.  Stay tuned, I am thinking of going thrifting this weekend, I have a 30% off coupon burning a hole in my wallet.  Cheers, Michele

No Need to Tame This Animal Print!! Thrifted Dress!

Posted on

So my local Goodwill has been replaced by a St. Vincent de Paul store so I had to go check it out.  Much better lay out, cleaner looking and better organized.  Didn’t find much except this Lane Bryant dress for $10.50 which even came with its own belt.  It doesn’t need refashioning, I just thought I would share my find.

What do you think, pretty awesome, right? I do love a good animal print! Cheers, Michele
