I love these shoes looking very cute

new balance

Histories make men wise ; poems witty; the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy deep ; moral grave ; logic and rhetoric able to contend .

This is a great post. I love your description of holding your fingers up in a peace sign...too funny! A few of my favorite finds are vintage patterns, books, and a child's picnic table. It just pays to stop in regularly and see what's new.

Well, you are lucky because it's way too picked over here in Chicago. We have a Japanese company here that sends pickers out 7 days a week to every thrift store and it's all gone no matter how early you arrive. It sucks. And they are vicious.


this is my best thrifting trick, and it has worked more times than you'd believe...

visualize what you need. what you want. what you MUST HAVE. and you will find it. maybe not right away, but you will find it.

i've never read 'the secret' but i think it's the same kind of principal. put your thought out into the universe and the universe (aka the thrifting gods) will answer you.

as a prop and costume shopper, this has worked for me on a better than 60% average. i'm not kidding. down to needing a 'darth vader' helmet for a sketch i had written, walking into the goodwill, and bee lining to the very helmet in the toys section.

i have 'put out there' that i need a dress form. this one is taking a little longer than usual. but i can wait.....
