    I'm off to Camden Market this weekend looking for something funky and different. Cannot wait.

    Yea, I am still out and about to the stores every chance I get. Last week I had a few minutes BY MYSELF (which is so very rare) and I chose to spend it poking around the thrift store. Got some cute things for my oldest daughter.

    Its exhilarating.

    Ooooh, I do! I just found a pair of Banana Republic linen pants for $6.50.The pockets are still stiched together, like they'd never been worn.

    I've been Craigslisting, and it's freaking awesome!!

    The Value Village thrift store near my apt. was closed recently, complete bummer! It was a great store. There are plenty here though, to keep me busy. A few weeks ago I got some seriously high-quality bedding (matching bed skirt, shams and Portuguese cotton sheets that were like new, for about $15. It looks fabulous on my bed.

    i love thrifting. mainly i go looking for midcentury home decor, clothes (for my baby & myself) and vinyl. i've found tons of awesome second-hand vinyl at our local sunday morning flea market.

    It's better to have brand new stuffs but from my experience, I got more stuff to thrift stores because the designs were authentic, different and of course, the price.. i am addicted to vintage clothing its cheap but not all of it... but it all depends on how you carry yourself.
