There are few things that make me happier than getting a compliment on something I’m wearing or a piece of decor and being able to respond with, “Thank you, I got it at Goodwill!” However, the skill of being able to find great pieces in places like Salvation Army and Goodwill has taken years of practice.  My love of thrifting—and really, of the … Continue reading “I Love Thrifting—Here’s How I Get The Best Finds”
