So you think you want to thrift but you just haven’t found the inspiration. Let me tell you why I love it!
Thrifting is an affordable way to find unique home decor and clothing. For example, I started thrifting as a means of finding clothes that none of my friends had, at a price that didn’t break the bank.
Design styles recycle themselves so you can find things that were once old, but are now new.

If you visit a few church swap meets, I’m sure you’ll find authentic pieces of furniture or accessories that inspired the Mad Men phenomena. You may even get a great story to go along with your treasure!
Thrifting is also eco-friendly. When you buy a used chair at a garage sale, you’re keeping it out of the landfill and reducing your carbon footprint. Plus, you can repurpose lots of things you find. How about turning a salvaged sink into a bird bath? While helping to save the environment you can get some stylish pieces – could there be anything better?
So…go in search of that perfect mirror, headboard or sofa. And be sure to tell us what you find.
What are you waiting for…the weekend is almost here!
