thrifting






I forgot how much I love thrifting. I used to do it all the time back in my highschool and university days but then I became a bit of a nomad and had to cut back on things like collectables. More recently I've been enjoying blogs like Buttercupped and Smile and Wave where these girls really know how to find a good treasure and they inspired me to get back into the whole thrill of it.
This weekend I did a really quick poke around Value Village and the Sally Anne....and look what I scored! Two vintage Fisher Price toys and a beautiful set of ceramic canisters that will be used in my studio.
So how about you? Do you like thrifting? If so what do you specifically go on the look for? What stores do you hit up?
Oh and please don't forget to sign up for my giveaway...it closes on Wednesday!

  3. Isn't Value Village the best? I'm always finding fun things there...not like I need any more clutter in my life! ;) My favorite place to thrift are antique malls. I've found some amazing mid-century furniture pieces there! xo
