I LOVE THRIFTING: WRAP UP

i-love-thrifting.jpg

So I lied a bit when I said my post would be up Tuesday, but I have a really good excuse that you'll know more about next week! Anyhow, after the big rush of the last few days I'm finally feeling a bit back to normal...

We had a great group of ladies come out & join us for the Atlanta I<3 Thrifting group, and I can only say that it was a great success! The majority of the people in the group I actually didn't know prior to Saturday's event, so I was great meeting new faces and seeing which items caught each person's eye. We had a group of about 17 comprised of fashion bloggers, decor bloggers, non-bloggers and even a HGTV exec who was sweet enough to make sure we took some group shots (thanks again for coming, Anna)!

Carla of Decorativity found this vintage glass Chinoiserie-esque lamp at our first stop!

Tami & Kerrie debated the merits of this gold sequined jacket...
Lynn packed her basket with lots of clothing goodies...
And everyone walked away with something--most had several bags full!
Niki found some cute vintage silver glitter shoes that she ended up not getting. They fit her little feet like a glove!
And I found this old dresser with some great hardware (didn't end up getting it) and an amazing lamp that's now available for sale! This is one of my favorite thrifting spots--where other people see junk, I see hours of unbridled joy!
The day was a fun departure from my usual shopping alone, and it wouldn't have been possible without the idea borne from Rashon Carraway (Mr. Goodwill Hunting). I also put together few  Thrifting 101 tips for our group on how to get the best deals and score the best finds. Don't miss my 11 tips that will change the way you go thrifting--I'll be sharing them on Friday!
