...Thursday's Thrifting Tips...

Today is the LAST day in my


Its been fun sharing these amazing tips with each of you. I appreciate all of the panelists taking time to offer their advice on thrifting.

Thrifting is personal. People my not shop second hand for the same reasons. Some people do it out of necessity, others do it for the "thrill of the hunt" and the "satisfaction of the find."
Why do you enjoying thrifting?
 The thrill of the hunt, of course! It literally gives me an adrenaline high when I spot something I know is a keeper in the midst of a lot of other "junk." It also gives me a lot of satisfaction when I am able to find an incredible deal and then come home and turn the piece into something beautiful with a little TLC.
 I think my enjoyment comes from the thrill of the hunt and the unknown! You just never know what you're going to find while thrifting. Thrifting has become a part of my life. If I see a Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.I must go in. Its just exciting!
 Its a creative outlet for me. It's also thrilling and challenging to see if you can find a piece you have in mind, and when you do, its like you struck gold or you're a young George Bailey wishing for a million dollars in "Its a Wonderful Life." - "HOT DOG!!!!. It's also a way now-a-days to still get a shopping "fix" without breaking the bank.
 Thrifting gives you an adjusted perspective on the things we live with. Now there are so many shiny magazines and websites offering all of these wares for mass consumption. But really, it is the unique and the rarity that we want to live with. Those things that can't be replicated or reproduced and sold on clearance shelves at the local homemart. As well there is the inspiration factor of the leg of a vintage piece of furniture or twist of a candle stick that can jump start the imagination.
