my favorite thing after a good thrifting trip is getting everything all cleaned up -- scrubbing housewares & running clothes through the wash -- and then laying everything out to re-admire my treasures. they really are surprises & that's the best part about it. you can walk in, maybe with a hope or a wish...but you never really know what you'll walk out with.
my favorite spot to thrift in denver (the ARC) has a special on saturdays -- half off most tags. so on this trip, i scored everything shown -- 2 skirts, 2 blouses, a sweater, 4 mugs, a plate, and a tray -- for about $10. would ya look at those 90s revival treasures? the chambray + polka dot blouse fit like a dream tucked into high-waist jeans, and i was so excited to finally find a cropped, white pullover sweater -- the last two winters i've tried in vain to find the right one, but always struck out. basics are oddly tough, y'know?
