welcome to my space, I hope you are well. Thrift shopping used to be my absolute best past time while I lived alone after university. Even as the husband and I moved to our homes in a new location I made sure to scurry the area and note every reasonable thrift shop.
Environmentally conscious and sometimes really affordable??? Why Not!
Similar to my visits to TKMaxx, I found thrift shopping therapeutic. Just recalling as I type that selling thrift finds on ebay was one of my sources of income. (London’s best charity shop tour).
Bookmark this blogpost as it will be updated with new and up to date finds as I visit more. I would also make a post on the be Vintage & Secondhand Stores very soon on this blog.
Took a day off a couple weeks to explore 4 London areas with my girl, Demee.
