(a few vintage photographs I found today for a few cents.)
Ah, the past few summer days have been full of clear schedules, possibility of many new changes, and starts of summer classes. Both of my summer courses involve art, so I am actually not dreading the fact of taking them... and I heard there will be many field trips, which has brightened the idea. I am also currently house/dog sitting, and a change of scenery is always invited by me.
I am realizing what an avid thrifter I am lately. I am also realizing the more picky I am getting with most of my purchases (the price and the quality.. and if I actually need it). For the past while, I have usually been spending $5 or less at a thrift store, and my secret is just going to the locally owned and looking for the "sale" signs hanging in the door. Today, I walked out of a husband and wife thrift store with two quality shirts and vintage photographs with just the change in my pocket. Readers, what are some of your advice for thrifting?
