Thrifty Threads

I've got no Thrifty Threads post today because... I completely ran out of photos!

I was getting a lot for awhile there, so I started doing it every week, but I guess everyone has been busy with fall and back to school.

So please send in those photos! Put on a secondhand outfit, have someone snap a photo (your kid will do if there's no one else around, a lot of Thrifty Threads photographs are the work of 5 or 6-year olds), and send it to me at: barton.angela@gmail.com.

And as long as I start getting pictures of your fabulous finds again, Thrifty Threads will be back next week. In the meantime, click here to check out all the previous installments of this series... 16 terrific models so far.

I can give you thrifty home furnishings! I find great deals on all sorts of collectibles at my local thrift stores. Some I collect personally, and others I resell on etsy or ebay. But though I have no problem washing and using some ceramic item in my home, I've never wrapped my head around used clothing--I guess because I'd have to try it on before I could wash it. I'm working my way toward getting over that, as I know it's an irrational objection. Anyway, if you want me to send you pictures of great deals on Pyrex, Longaberger, or other "stuff" let me know. I know we're anti-consumerist, but as I'm not buying this new, I don't have a problem with it in my home, at least, as long as I have the room for it.

Ellen- Thanks for the offer, but I really want to stick to clothing for this series. But you should definitely send it to Katy at the Non-Consumer Advocate for her Fabulous secondhand finds series she's started.

I don't know why all of a sudden I can't get comments on your blog- I LOVE your Kitchenaid Mixer- it is gorgeous!
