Introducing, Know Your Thrift

Hello brave and faithful readers!  I'm back (already!) with another introduction.  One of my genius (if dare say so myself) ideas for this blog is a series of posts about thrift stores and thrifting in general.  If you live in a town like mine, there is no shortage of thrifting opportunities (there's a thrift store in almost every strip mall in town).  For the patient shopper, with a open mind and an eye for potential,  these stores can be gold mines for unique, inspired fashion and home decor.  If you are willing to put a little bit of time into your discoveries you are on your way to many inexpensive, environmentally friendly, socially responsible and super stylish buys.

Still not convinced?  That's where I come in.  I'm going to take you on a tour of some of my favorite thrift treasures in Tucson.  Even if you live elsewhere I hope they will inspire you to go find your own local treasures.  We'll search for the resale diamonds among stores I know and love as well as stores I've only just discovered.  Together we will pick out treasures, learn techniques for personalizing finds and share some of the ways in which I incorporate thrift store buys into my wardrobe, life etc.

Coming soon: a sneak peak at my materials haul from the last two days!  Sooooo much shopping, now the fun begins!
