Events: 2017 June Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour (Photo Recap)

Monday, June 12, 2017

What I love more than thrift shopping, is to share my passion and be an inspiration so others would try thrift shopping too. In 2011, I started the Thrifting Atlanta community because I wanted to get the message out to as many people that I could, here in Atlanta and nationwide.

Today our social network has grown to over 30K members who are thrift shopping veterans and newbies, resale business owners and "thrifting" fashion bloggers. We enjoy thrifting at thrift, consignment and vintage shops.

Through our in-person events including monthly thrift shopping bus tours, fashion swaps and our annual Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Week, we spread the joy and art of thrifting in the city we affectionately call home: ATLANTA! The bus tours are a great way for thrifting newbies and experts, to learn more about the great thrift stores in Atlanta.

We travel on a chauffeured bus to shop up to ten thrift, vintage and consignments stores on one weekend (Saturday and Sunday) each month. Shoppers enjoy exclusive discounts at each store and get a bag lunch too. But most importantly are the friendships developed during the day.

Last weekend we visited the following stores: Goodwill Sandy Springs, Alexis Suitcase Consignment Sandy Springs, My Best Friend's Closet Consignment, Cherokee Rose Shoppe, Goodwill Perimeter. 

Check out a brief photo recap our thrift shopping day.

Thrift Haul of the Week: Summer Tops + Vintage Dress

Friday, May 19, 2017



As summer approaches, I knew that I needed to add some summer tops to my wardrobe. Because whenever I have to out for drinks or a quick run for ice-cream, my honeydoo prefers that wear jeans and a blouse, instead of dresses. I take it as a signe, that maybe he is tired of seeing me in dresses. So this trip, I decided to focus my thrift shopping on blouses only. However, blouses at Goodwill are priced at $5.99 and dresses are now priced at $6.99 a price increase from $6.36. So for an extra dollar, I would prefer to buy a dress. It makes getting dressed so much easier. So I ended up going home with four tops and one dress. I knew it would be a hard task, so my thrift sister came thrift shopping with me to make sure I stayed focused. She even helped me to pick out some of the tops. She actually went over to the dress section to pick out the vintage dress. I guess she felt a little sorry for me because she knows how much I love dresses.

Don't Forget Your Smartphone
Your smartphone is one of the most important tools you can use to be a successful thrift shopper. I use mine all the time to check prices for items, so I can be sure that I am getting the best bang for my buck.

How do you use your smart phone while thrift shopping?
