the thrift list

the thrift list
While I'm sure I could find these things at any mall, I'm also sure I could find them at my local Goodwill. I've seen both denim/chambray shirts and bright pencil skirts and silk blouses were huge in the early 1990s-- whatever top I find I'll just take out the shoulder pads. :)

Do you thrift shop? What's on your list?

  1. I have 7 bright colored pencil skirts from Goodwill and I love them! They're super easy to find.

  2. cardigans, always cardigans, because they make me feel secure. I know it's weird. Sweaters in general, but more than anything cardis.

    sheets that are great fabric for other projects.

    scarves and belts.

    and always, clothes for my boys who won't stop growing and wearing things out with their crazy ways.
