This challenge is designed to help you build a home or wardrobe of thrifted essentials, month by month.
I’m an Akron-based thrift blogger, podcast host, and branding consultant for thrift stores and creative entrepreneurs. My personal style is bold and colorful and I can’t resist a fully beaded vintage dress.
