My Love For Thrift Shopping

My Love For Thrift Shopping
When I first started to thrift shop at the market I was pretty much the worst of them all. Not only did I not know what I was doing but I could not find anything that I liked at all. I was definitely one of those people that left the thrift store feeling defeated and like I was the worst thrift shopper in the world!

Now that I have done it awhile I can say that I have come up with the perfect way to find the items that I love. Grant it, it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to master but after years of hard work, I feel like I have become somewhat of a pro. 
My Love For Thrift Shopping
My first experience with thrift shopping was when I was in elementary school. My mama took my sisters and me to the local Goodwill and we hated it. We thought the clothes were outdated, the books were torn up and that it had a funny stench in the air. Little did we know that our mom forcing us to go is what would make us love it so much today! As soon as I started college I began to thrift even more because I wanted to be able to buy more clothes with a limited amount of money. I had become a whiz at being able to put together a plethora of outfits or only $20! Before I knew it people were asking me about my style and how I was able to find such things inside of a thrift store! I always tell people that thrifting takes time and practice and you have to be able to see the treasure within something that most would consider raggedy.

Now that I have been thrifting for a while I can always spot something that I love in an instant! I can honestly say that I have found some of my best clothing items from the local market and thrift stores.

Honestly, one day I would like for everything that I own to be second hand! I know this may be a bit far-fetched but I think I  can make it happen. I haven't been able to venture off into decor just yet but when I do start I know It will be second hand! Not only does it save it money but there is always something unique there.

I just love everything that there is to offer in a thrift market! You can never go wrong with the cute things you can find. What's funny is that the older I become the more I want to do simple things like this in life. Anyways, do you guys thrift shop? If so, what do you like buy the most!?

Best,
