Thrift Haul – October 2017

Ahh October, I’m glad the month is over thrift-wise as it’s my least favourite time for the thrift shops being so packed with non-thrifters looking for their Halloween costumes. I have been frequenting other locations for thrifting rather than my usual location so it’s been nice to branch out from the regular. If you are in Edmonton, my new favorite location is the Value Village near NAIT. I thought this one would not be good but perhaps we should never judge a book by it’s cover, the shoe section has…

What I’ve Thrifted in 2017 So Far

Even though I haven’t been blogging officially for majority of the year, I’ve still been doing lots of thrifting for myself and sourcing for my eBay shop. Most of these have been captured on my Instagram but let’s have a look back and put them together into one pretty post! H&M rug $11 – I think I was a rug dealer in a previous life. Brass elephant bank $5 – cute little guy! Starbucks mugs are what I always look for though I find them so often now that I’m more…

Value Village – December 2016 Part III

Thrifting post Christmas is a pleasant experience, I had never seen the store so clean and some sections were almost bare! But fret not, the staff were bringing out many items as I was there so it could be a good time to go, to get the fresh picks!

I always find the rows a little cramped with the seasonal items which makes…

Value Village – December 2016

I love thrift shopping more and more. It just becomes my secret (not so secret) place to go to debrief. Lately, I’ve been finding things not only just for myself but also for friends as well as sourcing to sell so I’ve been spending a bit more time there and giving more and more care and thought into what I bring home. Here’s what I spotted: Elevenses blazer $10, Anthropologie brand Zara coat $40 North Face jacket $40 G-Star jacket $20 Zara pointy flats, BNWT, $18 I spotted so many…

Value Village – October 2015

Like most thrifters, Halloween time is my least favourite time to shop as the store is cramped with new Halloween costumes and more customers. But any time that I have visited during this season, has always been very lucrative for me. This particular shop was a gold mine in the shoe and dress section that I had a full cart and had to make a b-line for the change rooms early in my shop. That has never happened before! Plus, I have very small feet that the shoe section is…
