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?

Pretty much obsessed with thrifting. To me, it’s all about patience and frequency. Inventory is constantly turning over, and you need to be the first to see the new stuff. And sometimes, you just need to keep going, even after leaving empty-handed 5 times in a row. :)

avid. love it even when i find nothing. my dad’s a hunter and not a very good one, but he loves it. it is the hunt my dear. the thrill of the hunt. and if you lived in a bigger city you might have more options, but a lot more competition in scoring the prizes as well. lovely things you scored here. well done. xo

I am in Boise too. Which one did you score this stuff from. I had a baby just a few weeks ago so was wondering if a new one opened. Happy thrifting.
