Thriftaholic anonymous






Do they have a group for Thriftaholics? If they did I would surely be in it. You know your addicted to something when you wake up on your Saturday morning and the first thought that pops into your head is "ooh it's Saturday...yard sale day!" On goes the ball cap, on goes the baggy over-alls and away you go, a sleepy eyed baby and a wild eyed thrifter. At least...that's how it happened for me this past Saturday. A humorous side note...I didn't wear any makeup or do my hair, I just threw on a ball cap and got in the car, well I went to this yard sale that was thrown by two young military wives...later that afternoon I bumped into them in the elevator at the mall...one girl goes, "Didn't I see you this morning at my yard sale? oh my gosh...you look so different, you don't even look like the same girl!" Thank you Revlon! effective advertising for your magnificent coverage :)

As some of you know, I'm due to open my Etsy shop hopefully by the end of the month...but as I have a lot going on this particular month we'll keep our fingers crossed that I find the time. I intend to sell everything vintage and some home made. Some of the pictures are items that will be featured in my shop, I know my pictures tend to be a wee bit blurry, and I'm having problems with my lighting, but a trip to BestBuy in the near future for a tripod is hopefully going to cure these problems...so until then, just kinda squint...
