Thrift Tripping Columbus Ga. PT 2 - SECOND TIME AROUND Consignment Shop

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

This past weekend two friends and I decided to met up with our dear friend Angela in Columbus Ga. 
Angela traveled from Montgomery Alabama. We decided on Columbus because it was equal travel distance drive for us all, and great spot for a quick girl’s day trip.

Our day was planned by the planner of the group Lauralen, she had our day laid out starting with a great brunch at BARE ROOTS FARMACY farm to table restaurant*** it was delish. 
Of course the tip would not  have been complete without visits to a couple of consignment shops as a treat to me.
One of the shops was called SECOND TIME AROUND * Consignment Boutique,
It was a nice shop, great visual layout, with some  and nice selection of  designer brand inventory .They were having  30 - 50 %  off SALE our salesperson  Peggy was very pleasant, Maureen snagged a few pairs of  earrings and I snagged a great Brahmin wallet for $34.00 .  YESS I said $34.00
Next time you visit Columbus go by 2211 Manchester Pkwy and shop with the ladies of Second Time Around  Consignment . 


We ended our day with a trip to the RIVER WALK then off we went  to try some delicious goodies from KILWINS a local chocolate/ice cream shop .

I enjoyed #ThriftTripping and eating in Columbus Georgia * I can’t wait to go again and explore more thrift and resale stores.

My NWT MERCER SHIRT FROM Salvation Army

Thursday, August 23, 2018


I got THRIFTLUCKY** when I stopped by Salvation Army one evening. Once inside the store I decided to browse the tee shirt section and there it was a NWT (New with tags) Mercer University long sleeved tee for $1.99. 
YESS now that’s #savvyshopping at its best. I'm an alum of Mercer, but I must say that price is much better than the bookstore price for a tee.

Our First COMMUNITY WIDE THRIFT FASHION SHOW was a Success

Monday, August 20, 2018


Just a few months ago , the idea of a Thrift Fashion Show was taking shape.
The committee brainstormed about dates,places, theme, times for a show, then one of the ladies said why not do link it to NATIONAL THRIFT SHOP day , which is observed  every August 17th
An idea was born and the team got busy. The ideas kept flowing , duties were divided and we all went to work planning for the first community wide  THRIFTING CENTRAL GA THRIFT FASHION show.

Fast forward a few months and we had stylists , a make up artist and plenty of models lined up to help showcase some of Central Ga's finest thrift store pieces. There were also sponsors willing to help us fill our MEGA THRIFT GIFT BASKET, provide beverages for our models and more.
Charise Stephens secured us an amazing host/hostess for  the show , yes both of them are thrifters.
Dr. Melinda Moffett and Mr. Colby Cain brought good vibes to the show.

Retail Shopping at THRIFT PRICES *See My Jewelry Organizers

Wednesday, August 1, 2018














Being an avid thrifter I have acquired lots of jewelry.
Last week at one of my favorite retail discount stores I found me some thrifty priced jewelry organizers . They had a few styles all at only $2.99.  I snagged a couple of each!

 In other words I got four organizers for less than the cost of one at other department stores.
