The Week in Review: Exciting Things on the Horizon

Well thrifters, this week has been rather pleasant for Let's Go Thrifting! As some of you may know, Thursday marked the official launch of The Trading Post, something which I hope will spark interest for some thrifty bartering.

And speaking of thrifty, it seems that my seemingly trivial expertise of secondhand shopping extends beyond the contents of this blog. I was recently offered yet another venue to explore the issue of thrifting from the kind folks of Macaroni Kid, a national print and online family-friendly newsletter. I have been asked to participate in a newly revamped 'Frugal Philly' section for the local Macaroni Kid edition, telling Philadelphians how and where to find the best stuff for cheap. My first article, a manifesto of sorts, is soon to be published (in two versions: one localized and one for a national readership). It pays to be an expert thrifter!

For the first time,  one of the items from the Let's Go Thrifting Etsy Shop has been featured in a treasury, a collection called The Green Colors of Nature.

I was also recently contacted by a representative from My Memories, a lovely site featuring products and software for digital scrapbooking. And I am pleased to announce that once I review the many features of the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software, I will also be giving one of you lucky readers a free copy! More information and the official rules of the giveaway will be posted during next week's editorial schedule. Look for more enticing offers from the folks of in the near future.

And stay tuned for even more excitement  on the horizon here at Let's Go Thrifting!
