It has to be said that I'm a seasoned thrifter. I am in my zone when I am at a garage sale, a good will, or an outdoor flea or farmer's market. I can sift through scads, piles, and large amassed mounds of junk and find treasure...and I love the chase.
Then, I had kids, and that (like almost everything else) was put on hold while I juggled feedings, nap time, and the actual number of showers in a given week.
I kind of forgot about my undercover 'deal' nature and really didn't have longings for my past Sally Ann and antiquing days...until I realized THIS year I want to put myself back out there. Garage salin' Fridays are calling my names, craigslist was re-book-marked in the browser and in one Saturday morning I found 5 things on my mental 'thrift list' just by marking it on my calendar to stop by a few favorite places. Score!
It can't be held back....estate sales...here I come!
