Confession- I am a bit of a thrift store junkie. There, I’ve said it.
Until about a year ago, I was one of those people who wouldn’t set foot in a thrift store. Let’s be honest; most smell funny. They can be crowded and disorganized, which makes the little OCD voice inside me want to scream and quickly flee. Never mind the fact that I can be a bit of a label snob, so off-brands and used items were hardly a cause for excitement.
Enter some cool thrifty mama friends and a year of being on mat leave in a small town of 7,500 people. The thrift store became a quick and easy outing. I was tentative at first. Until I was hooked.
These days I regularly peruse the thrifts stores for unique or vintage little knick knacks, party supplies, fabric, and so on. You may find me rummaging around in a store near you- I’ll be the one in the $300 jeans…. who pulls a ziploc baggy full of change out of her Kate Spade handbag at the till;)
And now I will share with you one of my recent finds. A large wooden shelf that I got for one dollar. ONE DOLLAR, PEOPLE! It started out in a cute blue colour. Too bad that not all of the sides were painted though:( A few coats of white paint and viola!- A fab way to display nail polish and other beauty products on my bathroom wall:) Yay for thrifting!
