as anyone who thrifts regularly knows, there are good days to stop into your favorite spots - some shops add new stock only on specific days, while others may feature terrific sale days. but honestly, you never know what you’ll find on any given day. and that’s part of the fun of it, am i right?
i especially love vintage and antique textiles, pillowcases, housewares, and children’s books. and now that i’ve changed my shopping paradigm a bit, i keep a small list of items i’m on the hunt for just in case i see them. you know, those things you do not automatically look for, but they are indeed out there now and then.
ok, so brace yourself.
like many of you, i have never been one of those people to happen upon something that is beyond amazing, until recently when it seems i was in the right place at the right time. that there mid-century desk is proof in the pudding that you never know what you’ll find unless you look.
seriously, go looking! and if you have little kids, take them along. make a regular date to pop into your local thrift shops and say hello. and while you’re at it, bring along a bag of clothes/toys/housewares to donate. it’s good karma. xoxo
