Thrift Shopping vs Thift Donations

These are 4 of the belts we cleared out, now that we are preparing for renovation. I still like them, especially the top-most one with the shiny buckle but they are too small now since these were most likely bought when we were teenagers (excuses, excuses).

Read about this thrift shop, Something Old, Something New, from Fashion Nation who read it from Cherry Magazine (yeah, it's a long list of references). Since I live in the East, which is near to this shop, I'm planning to bring these belts and other hair accessories among others, there this Saturday. I hope that someone who is slim enough will love them!

When I'm there at the shop, I really have to restrain myself so that I don't buy more things back than what I bring there. In the meantime until Saturday, I'm going to continue with the packing and fish out more goodies.

Here's the location of Something New, Something Old for easy reference:

The way you put it makes me feel like i def have to go to the store to chekkit out. It's really far tho, in the East. Honestly, is the selection there better than Salvation Army's?

I too wish I could get to the thrift stores you talk about. :(

Green laundry: I'm going there this Saturday with my stuff, will let you know after that! I'm such a shopaholic that I have to restrain myself!

Even for the Salvation Army, the offerings vary, depending on what is available then! It just depends on luck, I think!
