We’re on Etsy!

I have collected a lot of fun and beautiful vintage items, but I do not have space to enjoy them all. So, I am offering them to you on Etsy! Stop by and have a gander. Maybe something will tickle your fancy.

Thrift Giving


How do you feel about gift shopping at thrift stores? I think some people find it tacky. As for me, I used to but now I don’t. I put a lot of thought into gifts. So if I come across that perfect gift for someone at the shop, I will totally buy it for them.
Christmas is coming up. With five kids it could get very expensive. Luckily, my kids have been brainwashed raised to love the thrift store, and don’t mind one bit if some of their gifts originate there. I go often enough that I can find almost anything they are in to. A lot of times there are brand new items for sake at the shop, or ones that are like new.  I would guess that around 75% of the gifts we give at Christmas come from the shop. Most people don’t ask where their gifts come from, so it is my happy secret.

What do you think about thrift-giving?

What is Thrift Score Lifestyle?

What is Thrift Score Lifestyle? I am not entirely 100% sure, yet. I am thinking it will be a place to blog about my thrifting – the treasures I find, the upcycling I am doing, some thrift store fashion, and some musings. This is not a place to brag, I just want to share what thrifting does for us, and hopefully inspire you to shop there more often! Save yourself some serious money. You know you want to.

I will be the first to admit that I am a thrift store junkie. I am of the opinion that if you need something, you should check the thrift store first. I can find almost anything my family needs at “The Shop”.
