• Tell Your Friends

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 Happens: What We Love About Rashon

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!

Repurposed Design: Repurposed and Recycled Decorating Projects

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!

    You've inspired me to not give up on finding a perfect pair of lamps I can revamp for my first diy. :)
    You just have to be patient when on the hunt!

    I got 2 BRAND NEW "Global Bazaar" lamps (retail $89.99 each) at Goodwill for $18.99 each a few years ago!!! I picked them up, but thought they were too much and put them back and said, 'I'll come back and if they're still here I'll get them." My RIGHT mind kicked in and said, "Okay, $179.98 versus $37.98…do you REALLY think they're going to be here when you come back?!" Best thrift buy I've ever gotten!!!!

    Clean Freaks with Sabrina Soto is fantastic! FINALLY an up beat show full of ideas anyone can use. Thank you Sabrina for the best show I have seen on any channel in a long time. Keep it coming and thank you for your inspiration and great ideas that are truly possible for someone to do. Do you really need to travel so much to find someone with a clean house? That is sad. Maybe with your show that will change. Maybe we all just need a cheerleader like Sabrina to get us busy. Though in the past I have not been home on Sat. night, I will be from now on and will be a faithful viewer of Clean Freaks. Thanks again and keep it coming.

    When I watched Clean Freak, Sabrina showed her apartment. The cover on her bed is so pretty! I wonder where I can find it. Does anyone know?

    Good morning Rashon…..you have been a huge inspiration to me…have been a garage sale/thrift store junkie all my life….so inspired to see someone make such an impact from something you obviously love doing. I need help selling some of my beauties…..how how how can I do this? Live in a small town outside of DFW area….all the consignment shops want huge fees to sell for me….any other possibilities you can turn me on to?? Keep up the good work and look forward to hearing from you…:)

    convenience and confidentiality of dealing with payday lenders online Concerts seattle locking in and floating
    down – when borrowers pay their va home loan mortgage rates, they will
    also be given the choice of locking in or floating along
