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…

Thrift Haul – August 2017

It was a great month for thrifting and making some great thrift connections either online or in person! Value Village featured the feature image of mine of the white hobnail vase and flowers on National Thrift Shop Day, I won a $25 gift certificate and gained many new followers – welcome, glad we could connect! I love thriftshoping for both housewares and clothing! I’ve been checking out a few different locations lately than my regular Value Village on Whyte Ave location, just for variety but my normal location will always…

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! Once the Christmas season is done, the thrift stores will all return to normal until August when they start preparing for Halloween season and then Christmas again. I always find the rows a little cramped with the seasonal items which makes…

Value Village – August 2015

It has been an incredibly busy summer that I haven’t thrift shopped since May and I usually go at least once a month! Thankfully a mid week day off allowed me the opportunity to thrift in peace and quiet and just before the crazy Halloween season starts! The staff were putting up the Halloween section as I was there. I cringe when it’s Halloween season and all my hardcore thrifters agree – we usually stay away during this time! This thrift haul turned out to be quite successful in terms…
