I’m about to let you in on one of my secret little sweet spots. As much as I’d love to keep this little gem all to myself, in kindergarten we learned that sharing is caring. So I’m spilling the beans. 
There’s a great little thrift store across the street from our shop {hint-hint local readers: Regenerations on Central Ave} that’s become one of my go-to shopping spots. I try to walk over at least once a week with $20 in cash and do a quick search through the racks. I keep a list of the season’s trends I’m lusting over, and see what I can recreate with secondhand items on a shoestring budget. A few of the things on my radar this spring: wide-leg jeans, pretty prints, delicate floral skirts and dresses, bold and vibrant color, and cute wear-to-work shorts. On my last trip, I picked up this gingham button up for a buck! 
The store is always impeccably clean and organized, and you can usually find amazing deals on barely-worn designer labels and pretty vintage accessories. They receive new donations every day*, so the inventory is always new and fresh. 
As a relatively new thrift shopper — I only started shopping secondhand after starting my blog! — I know the idea of thrifting can seem daunting and overwhelming. If you’re new to shopping secondhand and aren’t sure where to start, check out Jentine’s thrift tips!

* This store is where the items from all of my closet purges usually end up.

    • Mikaela 01/04/2013 at 8:59 pm

      wow, those skull & crossbone rbbuer boots are to die for! Last time I saw such a great buy like that I had to hold my breath and slowly, and carefully mosey over and SNATCH them off the shelf before anyone else could see the GREAT find I had spotted. Oh yea, that was today at the Thrift Town sale where I grabbed a NEW pair of Skechers for $15.99! A splurge for me considering my normal finds, but I was just pricing NEW Skechers, and had to walk away! I’m so happy for you and your great find, and for ME!
