Last month we introduced you to Mr. Goodwill Hunting (aka Rashon Carraway) in our Blogger of the Month feature. While chatting about his blog and awesome thrifting skills, Rashon tipped me off that Saturday, July 9th is “I Love Thrifting” Day. So what is I <3 Thrifting Day? Rashon says, “I’m encouraging all my followers and others to join in and descend upon thrift stores to show a solid front.” Together designers and style-conscious folks in the online community can bring attention to the importance of repurposed design and their love of thrifting.
With several avid thrifters and fans of Mr. Goodwill Hunting on staff, we knew we couldn’t pass this event up. So, the HGTV Design Happens team has decided to host an I <3 Thrifting event in the city where we are based—Knoxville, Tenn.! So, if your close by, come and join us! We’d love to meet you. Check back for more details on where and when.
Or you can go thrifting with the designers hosting thrifting in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Roanoke, Va., Columbia, S.C., Charlotte, N.C. and Toledo, Ohio. Plus, continue to check Rashon’s blog and Facebook page for host updates in your city. Even if there’s not an official host near you, you can communicate with those participating in the event by using the Twitter hashtag #ilovethrifting to find interested folks in your community that may want to meet up and shop!
And don’t forget to order an I <3 Thrifting t-shirt to proudly wear around your city. (I’m getting the pink one!)
