All I’ve been wearing lately are these pants and my birks. It’s becoming my summer uniform. Speaking of which have any of you heard of that? Some people wear literally the same outfit (obviously owning multiple) everyday. Kind of neat..
🌞Anywho, I’m going to go check out some bulk stores because I’m going to try to become more eco-friendly and sustainable. So my introverted self needs to assess the situation then gear up to do so😂😬. But I’m excited! 🌞 #backgroundboone got a trim today and I seriously messed up on his back drumsticks.🙊 you can see the patch of light then the line of dark, definitely shaved too close. Sorry dude! •
Wearing a shirt from Gap I’ve had for a few years and love it, my ASOS denim jeans I thrifted, and my birks. Honestly clearing out my closet to what I think is slim pickings has been so nice! •
Set of 2 mini vintage plates. Each plate is made of porcelain ceramic. Each mini plate comes with it's own little box and plastic plate holder. Each plate measures approx. 3.1" across. Gold colored edge trim around each plate. Little boxes have some wear/tear to them. They have a "Hummel" look to them. $10 plus ship.
Warning: long rant. People ask me all the time how I get so lucky at thrift shops. I don't. It's the law of averages. Sure; I bought a new old stock cotton 1917 dated army tunic for $9.99, a nice m41 jacket for $13, M3 shoulder holster with pouch for $15....but I put the time in and hit the shops weekly.....and they're not always high scores. Today I visited 9 shops (and skipped two) and this is all I found (excluding the $145 WWII coveralls). I noticed a table full of snapshots from all eras in one high end store and decided to rifle through. I found a GI sitting on a bunk. I looked through more. Found a few of the same guy in Japan and maybe Korea. Found even more of him at a USO show. I painstakingly looked through over 500 photos to find every one of what used to be an organized album. I picked out 82 pics (all of them annotated) and asked for a bulk rate. "If I know my partner, she'll want the full price of $2 each." Cut to me saying I usually pay a buck a piece for military snapshots and was going to offer $50 for the lot, seeing as it's going to be reorganized and saved for history. Her counter offer was 20% off the list price. Check the receipt. I'm pretty good at bartering, even if it took me walking out the door to check out two more stores and grab a very long lunch before seeing if she could convince her business partner to either take $50 or stare at 82 more photos on that table from which nobody else has shown interest. #ThriftShopping#thriftstorefinds#preservingmemories#preservinghistory#phitography#snapshots#korea#japan#1950s#airforce

Hi, my name is Lea and I’m a thrift store addict.🙋🏻♀️ There. I said it. 🤦🏻♀️ But when I find such good stuff like this little chrome table lamp how can I resist?! 🤷🏻♀️ This week I’ll be sharing my thrifting finds, in hopes to inspire you that you don’t have to have deep pockets or buy new all the time. Help save the planet by breathing new life into once loved pieces and give them a new home and new purpose! One of my biggest tips to add warmth to a home is to find character pieces or pieces of meaning and thoughtfulness and incorporate those into your interiors. What are some of your most cherished finds?
This easy, beauty of an outfit is what I was supposed to wear today...until I woke up and realized the weather wasn't exactly the sunny day I thought it would be! Our best laid plans often go awry...but the bright side? I still get to share my original inspiration with you, and look forward to the sunny day when I can break this outfit out again 😊
I’ve been trying to be a more conscious consumer. When I go out, I am trying my best to use less plastic (straws, cups, etc). And I’ve been thrifting A LOT. I found this trendy top at Goodwill for $4?! Thrifting is a great way to decrease fast fashion shopping by recycling clothes to a new home ♻️
Gosh I wish it had been sunny enough to wear this today! It's the kind of free outfit that makes me want to frolic in the fields and make wild tea. But as usual, when I see rain clouds, my brain aborts my outfit plans and says "black is good!" 😅
