1, 095 Days of Thrifting: Happy 3rd Blogiversary To Me!

Sometimes it's hard to believe that I've made something of a name for myself as a thrift blogger and when I visit my favorite secondhand venues, I get recognized as such. Three years ago, the idea for Let's Go Thrifting was hatched. I had been happily digging up secondhand wares since I was 16 years old and it was high time that I share some of my thrift-pertise with the world. 

Three years later and here we are! I certainly hope you've enjoyed some of my tips and tirades, my waxing poetic on the secondhand lifecycle, my wacky finds and wish lists for future thrift trips. God knows I've enjoyed it. The interviews, the photo shoots, the DIY projects, the product reviews and giveaways----it would be a lie to call this work. 

With that being said, I hope this upcoming year is filled with more ideas and inspirations, more fabulous thrifted finds to share and more virtual friends to make. As always, a great big thanks is due to all of you awesome readers who make Let's Go Thrifting the community it has become.

And speaking of thanks, I owe my ridiculously talented sister, Ashley, a HUGE debt of gratitude for this adorable owl-themed blogiversary cupcake-cake! She's the professional cake decorator for Fritz's Bakery in Bensalem, if anyone local to the Philadelphia or Bucks County area is in need of some lovely decorated cakes. This was almost too cute to eat...almost. Thanks for making this 3rd blogiversary especially sweet, sis! 

And now that I've had my celebratory blogiversary cake, it's time to relive some highlights from the last year. 

Here's to another amazing year of Let's Go Thrifting!

Thanks, Van! I don't even know how you manage do all the creative work, reselling, blogging and fun adventures that you have. If I get Let's Go Thrifting to even half the level of success as Thrift Core, I'd be thrilled.
