Just wanted to share this thriftical coolness with you all... I decided I wanted to post my thrift store treasures, much like Breanna and Andrea do on their respected and respective blogs (such sweet girls!), but maybe with a little twist.. Cause I'm a fan of twists. (I'm also a fan of parenthetical statements, hence the abundance of parentheses) I'm hoping this will progress into an awesome opp for some fine bonnie lasses to guest post on my blog (I love guest posts!) Basically it goes something like this... You share what department you beeline when you go to a thrift store and then showcase your top (or close to top) finds of all time. Is it books? Is it records? The dress section? Plain and simple. So share what department(s) you check out first and then share a few of your treasured finds... I would love to know your thrift store strategery....
Before I post what I zero in on...Let me tell you what I refrain from purchasing at the local 2nd hand (You could share that in your post too.)
-Furniture (This would be something I would totally get if I had a truck to haul away my goods)
-Appliances (Although I do like looking for retro toaster ovens and crock pots, I'm always apprehensive that something will short circuit and turn this jongleur into a crispy critter.( Not a fan of hair singeing.)
-Underwear (I've never met anyone who bought underwear at a Thrift store...I could be wrong!)
Ok...Here it is. I lock and load on the shoe and accessory departments.
I love flats. Lovey and I are the same height, and I (vehemently) refuse to tower even one millimeter above his head. I wear the animal print ones with pretty much everything, whether it matches or not. (Each of these pairs was under $4. Woo howdy!)
I love jewelry. I probably own more ear and wrist candy than shoes. (That ring only fits me on my pinky ... Boo! May have to do a giveaway...)
I'm a scarfbear for sure. I tend to wear them no matter the temp. I acquired that green beauty at a thrift store in Barcelona. Ole!
Well... That's it! Tell me if you'd like to participate....
Janette, the Jongleur

PPS. Sorry for such a text-heavy post. I guess I'm a typeative one tonight.
