Do You Love to Thrift Shop? Join Us on Saturday, July 7th

The annual “I Heart Thrifting Day” will be Saturday, July 7th (this coming Saturday!) Rashon Carraway is the brainchild behind this nationwide day where groups of frugal-minded citizens (okay, mostly fun-loving blogging gals) scour local thrift stores for fun treasures.

Last year Courtney organized our Raleigh, NC group.

She did a fabulous job coordinating the 2011 thrifting tour. So, I’m so thrilled that she’s heading it up again. You can read more about the details on Courtney’s blog, The Joy of Decorating.

I hope you’ll join us! But, be forewarned, I have a knack for taking wacky pictures of the participants.

“It’s a frugal life, oh yeah!
It’s a frugal life, uh huh. Gotta get my decor for cheap.
Outta my way Thrift Store Shopper. It’s a frugal life, OH YEAH!”

My apologies to Little Orphan Annie for using her theme music.



  1. I’m going for sure! Notice how I escaped your whacky pictures?! I’m an expert!

    Hoping to find fabulous deals just like last year.

  2. Thanks for those awesome pictures! LOL

    I can’t wait to see you guys again and hopefully meet some more wonderful thrifters!

    Fun! I’m a thrift shop addicts. I hope you have fun!

  4. Oooooh!!! Thanks for sharing this. I think it’s an awesome idea and would love to join y’all on Saturday!

  5. Oooh – I so wish I could go, but I’ll be out of town that day. I’m just up the road from you in Greensboro. I missed last year too. :( Hope y’all find some steals!

  6. What? There are places to thrift in Raleigh? I thought y’all were expensive over there. (I’m in Winston, where the only thing that’s cheap are the cigarettes.) I guess I’ll have to try to find some cheap stuff somewhere!

  7. I SO wish we were closer! I just love being on the hunt with friends!

  8. What fun – maybe I’ll arrange my own little thrifting posse!

  9. Hey there,
    Thanks for sharing this…I’d love to join in and meet some fellow like-minded thrifty gals around here. I’ll head over and check out the details. Hope to see you again Saturday!
