Adventures in Thrifting
Those who know me well know that I love to thrift. It's come to the point where people don't even ask me where I got that cool shirt/jacket/whatever, they just say "Goodwill. right?" To which I reply "Aw yeah!" I used to be so ashamed when I bought something used in high school I would always lie and say that it was from the Gap or something, but now? I feel like thrifting is SO AWESOME and I DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS THAT I ONLY PAID $2 FOR THIS AMAZING USED SWEATER!
Yesterday Dave and I went to the local Salvation Army and found this amazing like new chair and ottoman. I'm pretty sure my Oma and Opa had the same one in their house at one point. We were on the fence about whether or not to get it (would it fit in our little apartment? Can we afford to buy a chair right now? And then noticed it was 50% off making it a mere $20. (Um, yes. Now it has a nice spot in our living room, and the sheepskin makes it extra cozy.
What's the best thing you ever found at a thrift store?
