From me to you


So this is what I'm thinking, I would love it if I could do a monthly thrift exchange with three friends. I thrift shop about 4 times a week in search of items to sell in my mall space and because Im always bringing home a wide variety of kiddo clothing and kitschy home goods I figured Id share the wealth! For instance I am always finding boots that aren't my size and vintage girl clothes that are too small for my nieces so I just end up selling them which is great but would be even greater to have a particular person in mind while shopping next time. And really how many damn owls can I hoard all to myself? I think that this will be a really fun way to make special packages to my blog friends and get a little something sweet in return!
Heres the plan, We exchange addresses and our children's sizes and sometime in March we will send our gifts to one another randomly. Amount of items and price is totally up to each individual person but it just has to come from a second hand store or a yard/estate sale. I'm totally excited about this and I hope you play along!
