I must admit that shopping and purchasing new items for my wardrobe has to be one of my favorite pass times. Now when I say favorite I mean FAVORITE. I love window shopping and picking out a freshly, unworn garment from a hanger in a shiny retail store. Though the high I get from buying something brand spanking new is great and all, there is something about thrift shopping that truly sends me shooting through the roof with excitement. Knowing that I bought something that someone else probably doesn't have is thrilling all in its self. Not to mention I spend next to nothing for it. Because I enjoy thrifting so much, I decided to give myself a little challenge.
In a new weekly series I will find the best goodies available at my local thrift shop using only $10 to spend. That's it! It is a challenge to myself to see potential in items others have chosen to give away. I am not bias when it comes to clothes. When I see a good deal, new or used I jump on it. Sometimes I like it better when I find a gently used item and make it my own. It makes me feel unique in the way that a brand new article of clothing doesn't. I'm not saying that I feel like everything in the stores are the typical cookie cutter design, but I appreciate when I can change it up from what it looks like in another person's closet. Being unique is important to me. Then again I just like being myself. Dressed in new clothes or not, it is all about expression and having fun with it. So there, my explanation as to why I have decided to take on my own $10 challenge. I am sure I am bound to find some interesting things in my search. Stay tuned for my weekly series, Thrift-Ten fix!
The hunt is on!!
