I’m the first to admit thrifting can be really overwhelming. You walk into a store or sale and the amount of stuff (and oftentimes junk) can be a lot to take in. You likely fall into one of two categories: someone who feels defeated because they have no interest in digging through everything to find the good stuff or someone who feels totally determined to look through everything as to not miss anything. I am the latter. The idea that I would miss something great is a terrifying and disappointing thought – a little sick, I know.
I’ve found that’s usually how I find my favorite pieces; the ones that jump at you from out of nowhere, that show up in the most unlikely of places and times. And when they’re a crazy good deal too? I can’t say no. Well one time I did and I still feel somewhat regretful, but I’ve happened upon several things lately that seemed too good to be true.
