The Week in Review: A Preview of Things To Come

It's true. I am always working on the blog regardless of the day or time. I'm brainstorming, taking photos, observing interactions in the thrift and documenting all of my little secondhand adventures.

But come the end of the week wrap-up, Sunday is a reality check. This is when I come to realize that yet another week has come and gone. I am very pleased to say that Let's Go Thrifting! is beginning to look the format I've had envisioned for some time. We are also near 14,000 views, very exciting! And though I was unable to thrift anything useful, wacky or tacky, I've devoted some serious time to the blog this week. I've also been working toward other goals and opportunities.

I've been vigorously exercising every single day, no excuses. I've been to a few social engagements with friends, been trying to put myself out new people. I have a new writing project in the works and am planning fun photo shoots.

But I digress.

I know this is a blog about thrifting, about celebrating the weird and wonderful secondhand lifestyle. But sometimes I find it difficult to separate my personal life from my torrid love affair with the thrift. Maybe it's because, dear thrifters,I value your time and your input as readers. I love sharing my vintage finds, crazy clothes, oddball vinyl compilation albums and the many, many clown sightings. But I also love sharing about my life in general. But I'll try to keep it thrifty, I promise.

Speaking of keeping it thrifty. I'd like my readers to have the first look at the business end of Let's Go Thrifting! as we wouldn't have a business without you. So here is just a little preview of a few items that will soon be filling the virtual shelves of The Let's Go Thrifting Etsy Shop.

Vintage Multi-Colored Owl Candle

Rainbow Brite Snow Globe
Snuggle Bear Coin Purse Clip

Stay tuned for more thriftacular antics, and maybe just maybe a bit of the ol' personal life all wrapped up in one glorious package.

Thanks, gang! Treasure hunting is always a good time. Of course I always wish I had more time in general to keep it all straight. Busy, busy, busy!
