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.
Oh thrift stores. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. We love thrift stores so much we dedicated an entire podcast to thrifting and sustainability. But every now and then thrift stores do things that make us scratch our heads and wonder why they do them. In this episode, we discuss things stores do that may hurt the thrift experience or in some cases, completely damage the item.
We discuss this month’s #12MonthsofThrifing prompt: straw & wicker bags: why we love them, how to style them, and why you should thrift them.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the best way to find all the good stuff at thrift stores is to go often. So now that we have some extra time on our hands, we did a little experiment and went to Goodwill five days in a row. We share the lessons we learned, the things we found, and whether or not we’d do it again.
“The bins” are exactly that. Bins of secondhand clothing, toys, electronics, housewares, books – you name it – at incredibly discounted prices where items are sold by the pound.
I thrifted my first pair of vintage Prada and spent a total of $0! ??
I recently found these Talbots pineapple sandals and because they are a past season style it got me thinking about how I never thought twice about wearing past season clothes, even as a kid.
I rarely go to the men’s section at thrift stores, but this time I’m glad I did! This vintage Kobe Bryant number 8 retired jersey was just waiting for me. It’s certainly one of my special thrift finds.
From classic to bold, prints and patterns can completely transform an outfit.
Thrift stores reopened in mid-May here in Ohio and although we made the parody video about renewing my vows to Goodwill, I admit I was a little cautious at first about going back out into the world of retail.
I previously visited a local bargain store (not a thrift store) and my experience was not very pleasant, to say the least. It was like Black Friday on steroids.
