My book group just celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a trip to the City (as we Northern Californians like to call San Francisco). On our drive up the coast we stopped in the sleepy little town of Pescadero for some of their famous artichoke bread and artichoke and green chili soup. My “sisters of the page” and I spied a little thrift shop and decided to get our treasure hunting on. I love fashion but hate to shop so I was glad that my friend Stacy was along. Stacy has a successful eBay business where she sells name brand clothes that she finds at yard sales. She has a good eye and can quickly sort the wheat from the chaff. She also knows my style so she is quick to point out things for me to consider. We all found some great finds for around $6.00 per item and the proceeds all went to a wonderful children’s charity. I call this a win-win.
My friend Bonnie rocks a hippy-chic look and found a fun flirty skirt and fitted H&M blazer for under $10.00.
I love giving new life to things that people have tossed out. For some reason the search and the find make it more rewarding. Next time you need to spruce up your wardrobe, consider purchasing second hand or re-fashioned clothing items.
