Thrifted Thursday: Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part Deux, Haul

July 14, 2016

This Thrifted Thursday is a peek at all the great finds I made off with in my Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part Deux. I usually have great luck at Assistance League shops in general, so I wasn’t surprised about acquiring awesome goods and wares. However, I was taken aback by how deeply discounted most items were at the Assistance League of Santa Monica. I love a deal! This vibrant red patterned scarf ($2.50) could have been used for a number of things, but I intend to wear it as a headscarf. I can’t wait to tie it up in a big bow and twirl on all the haters.

Thrifted Thursday: Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part II

July 23, 2015

I’m still smiling from my birthday thrift crawl! And great finds like these will ensure that I’ll be grinning for a long while. Up first is my favorite find of the day: this darling, one-of-a-kind framed, hand embroidered art piece ($6.29). It basically fell into my lap while perusing the art section at Savers. It was strewn on some shelf next to some generic frames and whispered sweet nothings to me. I’m glad I snatched up this rare gem — much to the disdain of my pal, Lauren.

Thrifted Thursday: Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part I

July 16, 2015

After enjoying THE greatest staycation at the Ace Hotel Downtown L.A. the night before, I woke up early to get the party started. I had a long and glorious day of thrift shopping ahead of me with friends new and old as part of my 31st birthday celebration. Prior to the big day, I mapped out three Lomita thrift shops within a mile or so of each other, as well as an eatery suitable to meet my hankering for pizza, and set an itinerary: Savers at 11 a.m., Alpine Attic at 12:30 p.m., Palos Verdes Resale at 1:30 p.m. and, lastly, California Pizza Kitchen at 2:30 p.m.

At our first stop on the thrift crawl, we ran through Savers. It was especially great because this was my first time ever setting foot inside of one of these spots, and I was taken aback by how organized and ample the selection of goods and wares was. I tried on some hot pants and a skirt but to no avail. However, there were a couple other items that fit the bill. And when I checked out, I casually mentioned to the cashier that it was my birthday and she gave me a special discount. A-wooooooo!
