I Am A Thriftaholic

When I moved to the United States several years ago, my first visit to a thrift store was at the Salvation Army in Chicago. I was thrilled and actually taken aback by all the used merchandise of men’s, women’s, and children’s apparels, jewelry, furniture, house wares, books, etc, under one roof which I had not seen before, but I quickly recovered as I walked over to each department and familiarized myself with enthusiasm at their different merchandise, especially those that were on display. I did purchase a few items I liked that fit my budget and thereafter, my adoration with America's Thrift Store was established.

I became a regular visitor and have continued since because my fascination for second-hand chic has led me to incredible finds and the discovery of Goodwill, Value Village, Unique, Mom and Pop's Thrift Store, and Consignment and Vintage Shops through wonderful conversations I have had over the years with fellow thrifters while thrifting.

P.S. I am currently selling some of my unique Thrifted Finds at my online store at thriftychicshop.ecrater.com and blog about them at thriftychicshop.blogspot.com. Please stop by and visit sometimes.
