Sunday, April 29, 2018

I'm not poor.  I am just one of many who are smart enough to thrift.

Thrift stores have gained popularity in recent years, I think thrift groups like mine Thrifting Central Ga. and others have helped thrift shopping become hip and people are okay with others knowing them thrift!

OOOPS My Thrifted Shawl was Monogrammed. Just for Me

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

  On a recent thrift outing I bought a shawl, because I loved the color and of course it was a great thrift price.
Low and behold when I got home I realized it was monogrammed. But guess what it was monogramed with the letter  H which worked perfectly for me, You never know how thrift God's are going to bless you.
