I took a day last week and went thrifting, which I already mentioned to you. I really do have a love/hate relationship with thrifting. Somedays I score gems and other days I’m just finding poo poo. I had a mixed day last week. It started out by making me depressed and not wanting to ever hit a thrift shop/consignment store again. But then by the end of the day, thanks to one random store that I had never been to, I found a stash of treasures. It reminded me that it’s all about patience. If I had given up earlier, I wouldn’t have found that awesome gold plated ship that now sits proudly on my office bookshelves or the random cage that was used for fishing and now is used for a decor object. Now, I’m sure that if I lived in a bigger city with more options, it would be a little easier for me but for now it’s a full on treasure hunt. It’s a hunt that I’m not willing to do on a consistent basis.
What about you? Are you an avid thrifter? Or would you rather pluck your eyelashes out?
