this weeks thrift shop finds have only been made possible by the fact that i was desperate for candle wax to complete a craft project. i'd scoured my town and failed to find any so i drove an hour to the nearest town and stocked up.
however the 2hrs worth of driving in total were made more worthwhile by the fact i stopped by their op shops and scored some serious thrifting bargains. so much so that i actually briefly considered doing what i did back in 2007 and only buying thrifted clothes as a goal for the year (excluding shoes, pjs etc). but i'm not sure. in 2007 i was a poor student and while i convinced myself that i was doing it to promote recycling and not being wasteful, the fact that my bank account was dismal also helped. however now i'm working full time, can op shops really provide enough professional clothes for work?
could you go a year with only buying thrifted clothes?
and now to share my other finds..
