10 Tales of Thrift: Volume 2

That awkward moment when you try to resume life as usual but you still feel like shit and then it starts to rain. Surely a sign to go back to the cave. I'm sharing tales of thrift with you, an all thrift outfit, and V's supreme photo bomb. Enjoy!

If I could trade lives with someone, I would want to be Hamish Bowles and travel the world looking for vintage finds. I will definitely be watching the Vogue web series.

Shon Valdry (aka Sunflower Mama Chronicles) went to her very first clothing swap. Some bumps but she scored a few goodies.

10 tales of thrift because I don't feel well

So the Modcloth founder, Susan Gregg Koger, was a thrift and vintage fiend who turned that love into a $100 million dollars a year business. Inspired.

I sold my favorite Coach purse on Etsy. I loved it but I hardly ever wore it and I need to make money. Pre-K is not cheap!

More thrift tips if you need them.

Olivia Lane rocked her quirky and wore a cute vintage head scarf.

I won a $25 ThredUp credit and was the Thrifters Anonymous member of the week on Shana's Colorblind blog.

A friend turned me on to Nebraska's Junk Jaunt and I totally want to go. Anyone else?  C'mon let's do it! Think about it. No pressure but seriously email me if you want to go.

I think I've found a new thrifting BFF . She turns trash into treasure. I want her to be my IRL friend. Maybe she wants to go to the Junk Jaunt!

I finally washed my thrift haul from last Saturday's Thriftanista ThriftUp. I Instagramed some of my favorites - a church lady gold foil twist top, a vintage beaded clutch and these randoms.

By the time you read this, I hope to be healed and hitting up estate sales.

Later, folks.

Feel better, lady. And, oh my word, I remember when V was a baby. Where does the time go?

Feeling much better. V will be 3 on Wednesday. Started blogging when she was 3 months old!

Look at V! She's so adorable. It makes me wish my Lou was still that age.
Have you heard of the thrift store runway contest? You should check it out. You submit a photo of a thrifted outfit and you can win up to $500! I was a winner for the July cycle. You should totally do it.

"A friend turned me on to Nebraska's Junk Jaunt and I totally want to go. Anyone else?" I'M UP FOR IT! Maybe just one day, though. Let me know how your plans shape up!

Love the crisp blue of the skirt. Well put together, as usual. Adorable kiddo.

Congratulations! I've entered a few times but never one. I'll have to try again!

Thank you!

Thank you! I'm still thinking about Junk Jaunt. Have to see if I can get coverage for the babes.
