Over the last few years, I’ve become somewhat of a sneakerhead. However, the sneaker game has elevated, which also means that prices are also high. But as a thrifter, paying $100 and more for one pair blows my mind. Thankfully good people donate great items, including sneakers, to Goodwill!
It’s my favorite time of the year! At last, the autumn equinox is looming on the horizon and cooler temperatures are in our near future. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to rush summer’s end but I’m longing to feel the crisp morning air, hearing dried leaves crackling under my feet and sipping warm pumpkin spice lattes. However, with the upcoming season change comes a wardrobe switch and in this post, I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite fall fashion staples that will be making their way out of my storage bins and into my closet.
=A year ago, I made a pledge to buy 90% of my clothing from thrift/secondhand spaces. I wanted to make an impact in my wardrobe, something that is such a big part of my identity. Yet, when I tell people that I thrifted an item they are in awe or do not believe I got it from a thrift store. This is highly problematic for three reasons and we must work to end this phenomenon.
One of my spouse’s pandemic projects has been creating a miniature museum in a room of our house. This includes a nautical collection, and the centerpiece is a group of local lighthouse figurines — some of them thrifted from Shop Goodwill.
Have you ever found yourself scrolling through social media for what should have been just a few minutes but ultimately turned into an hour or even more? Well, that’s exactly what happened to me when I stumbled upon a TikTok video showing the ease and affordability of creating faux terra cotta pots and vases using inexpensive glass vases and common art supplies.
