Thrifting is a Verb

I must admit I am thrifty but I still like nice things and after taking some time off from thrifting, Thrifting is defined as (at least to me) digging up treasures at thrift stores, yard sales, and flea markets, I have started to take it up again. I will admit that most of my house is filled with thrift store, yard sale or found items. I stop by thrift stores when I can it is not something I do on a regular basis, but rather on a  I am in the neighborhood basis.

My bargains include not only furniture and furnishings and clothes. Sometimes we use the item as is. Sometimes we repurpose it, making it into something new. Just recently we found some of these great items.

Jessica McClintock for Gunnee Sax Dress $5.99 (will probably be turned into a fairy costume for my petite one)

Pi, found this cute blazer and skirt. The picture does not do the skirt justice as it has some beading on the bottom of it. Total cost was $5.99 for the jacket and $4.99 for the skirt. She has already worn this ensemble to church. (minus my silk scarf)

Peanut found this brand name chiffon skirt at a thrift store for just $1.99, brand new to boot.

There is nothing like the feeling of a good thrift store find... or yard sale, flea market, or recycled savings... I have even started doing the Free-cycle. Awww yes, a verb in deed :)

Out for a little hopping, would love it if you would stop by Lucy's when you get time.
