Saturday's first ever Thrift Store Design Day was a blast!
Good company, great food and fun shopping marked the afternoon. Here are a few of the highlights:
* We learned all kinds of tips for locating the best deals and quality at thrift stores, as well as how to search for fabrics, kitchenware, lighting and DIY art!
* We had fun applying those tips at the local thrift store, browsing the aisles looking for dovetail joints, hardwood, potential art images, fabric and accessories.
* And everyone left with a little something, be it a thrift store deal, a CD on Thrift Store Design, or some very delicious buttercream cupcakes (I've eaten at least a half dozen of the latter!).
Host A Thrift Store Event!
This event was just the first of what will be hopefully many of the same to come! For more details on how you can host a Thrift Store Design Day, or to receive a CD of the tips and secrets discussed, email me at email@example.com today!
And More to Come this Week:
Also, keep coming back as we start another great week of Recessionista topics! Stay tuned to read more about the importance of preparation at home, especially in light of the recent news of the Swine Flu (a subject I'll be covering in this week's Smarty Pants column). As always, we'll be nurturing our creative sides with project ideas and photos. And speaking of nurturing, I'll also be writing this week about the nurturing role women play in society, and how that can positively impact this recession.
Can't wait to get started, and to hear all of your thoughts!
Talk to you soon!
