I’m mad about metallics. They sparkle. They shine. I guess I’m like a crow. So I thought I’d browse Craigslist in our lovely San Francisco Bay Area for all things shimmery today. We all know that brass is back but I’ll always be crazy for chrome.
Sake to me.
I’m mixing it up this week with a focus on specific items at Sally’s Army (Salvation Army, Valencia Street, San Francisco). Let’s talk about the fabulosity of sake bottles, or tokkuri.
Some of you may wonder: do I ever get tired of going to the same store over and over again? The answer is obvious. OF COURSE THE HECK NOT.
Oh dear. Miss Thrifta-hoardaholic has been confined to the home due to circumstances I won’t disclose. But it’s Thrifting Thursday! Nobody said life was fair, so I must resort to trolling Craigslist (I know it’s not a new concept, but it’s still so durn fun).
Friday is the new Thursday. Or it is the other way around? I skipped my Thursday thrifting because I knew there wasn’t an additional discount on furniture, so made a plan to go tonight instead. My foresight borders on genius.
I know what you’re thinking. Is she going to write about anything other than thrift store deals? DOES ANYTHING ELSE MATTER? I mean, very little compares to the thrill of the thrift store hunt, so here we goooo!!
I’m thinking this will be a regular thing for my blog, because it gives me another excuse to
indulge in my obsession treasure hunt. It’s a looney tunes habit disguised as motivation for fresh content. I know you see right through me. But here’s how *I* see it: when I hear from readers who get inspired to thrift at this very store, I feel gratified and it only encourages my behavior. So deal with it. You might actually score something.
It’s Thursday and while some celebrate the coming of the weekend by posting throwback photos, I mark the occasion by posting thrifting photos of my finds at the local Salvation Army (a.k.a. “Bargainista Paradise”).
