Coming Soon for an Encore Presentation

Confession time:  I haven’t stopped going to thrift stores!  I think I have cut back some, but stop all together?  Impossible.

I also checked out my stats, and it appears that Thrift Store Thursday was fairly popular, even if participation wasn’t huge.  We were a cozy group, and that’s more my speed anyway.

I have noticed that more than one blog around the ’sphere has recently started similar parties of their own.  They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! 

Just kidding.  I’m sure I wasn’t the first either.

Anyway…Thrift Store Thursday is back, friends!  Get your bargains ready for show and tell, and meet back here Thursday, July 30.  I think I’ll probably have some pretty good stuff after the sistas visit.

Thrift store, consignment shop, garage sale, treasure or trinket, it’s all good.

I'm glad it's back. I have some stuff to show ... not from thrift stores but from Evan's grandma's garage sale. Does that count?

I had decided I needed to stop going to Goodwill, too, but I just can't! So instead I go and agonize over whether or not I really NEEEEED that .99 cent whatchamacallit. I usually decide I don't and I've discovered that just browsing often satisfies that "hunter/gatherer" instinct, even if I don't walk out with anything. I have a few things that I keep in mind that I *really* want if they should happen to show up, but I've learned that I can pretty much pass up everything else. Even the "good" stuff.

Glad you're bringing it back!!! :) How could you ever stop thrifting? ;)

Yay! We loved visiting and posting on Thrift Store Thurdays as often as we could. It is hard not to thrift. I'm trying to be smarter about thrifting though. It is so easy to get carried away---for so long I was completely unchecked. Getting better, but still have a hard time moving away from a bargain. :0

I haven't gone to Goodwill all week - well I went but I didn't buy anything! I realized I have so much stuff I was starting to look for ways to store things. So I got a box together and donated some stuff - stuff I bought there!
