            I decided to kick-off my return to thrift shopping the day of a thrift store fashion show. The show, “Too Good to be Through”, was held by two charitable organizations with proceeds to go back into the community. I was in the show modeling four different outfits a hippie retro outfit, a tennis dress, a golden floral dress, and a black and white formal dress.
            At the end of the show the clothes were up for sale.

I Purchased...                                                      
                           a pair of black 
                                   and white earrings

                               a strapless                                formal 


 a creamed-colored 
                 evening purse                                        

and a pair of 
            gold earrings

This is embarrassing. My first entry and I’m confessing my addiction – thrift shopping. The search for one-of-a-kind items, that accessory to complete your new look, all while spending just a few dollars.
My weekly thrift store spending was getting out of hand, so I took action. I put myself on a three-week restriction; which became four weeks and a day. This was all while I was unemployed, and could not afford my weekly habit. Since receiving employment things have changed. It feels good to be back!
