Growing up, shopping at the thrift store was so not cool. Though I can say with complete honesty that second hand clothing made up 97% of my childhood wardrobe. My Grandma was my primary caretaker until I was about nine years old. Having lived through the Dust Bowl and Great Depression, she believed in making each and every penny count. So I perused second hand clothing racks with Grandma over the course of 28 years and, although it took a while, I eventually came to fall in love with thrifting. See, there is even a cool word for it now. I love fashion but I am not a fashion blogger. Gosh no. I’m just a girl on a budget trying to look halfway decent who thinks second hand finds are pretty nifty (Grandma’s word, not mine). I created this space as a way to document my thrifted finds in my own little corner of the Internet.
