I “Heart” Thrifting Day! Saturday, July 9th

Do you know this man?

That is
Rashon Carraway, aka Mr. Goodwill Hunting. This designer/blogger has started a day in honor of thrifting! He says: “thrifting isn’t a TREND it’s a LIFESTYLE”   Amen!

He is also selling T-shirts to spread the message (I “heart” thrifting.) This is a man with a message that is close to my heart. I love to thrift. I love to reuse. I love to recycle. I love to upcycle! Breathing new lift into cast off objects gives me a huge amount of joy.

Speaking of Joy, Courtney from The Joy of Decorating, has organized a Raleigh I <3 Thrifting Day excursion.

Here is the itinerary:

I will be joining them (hopefully from the first stop) and then will be finishing up at my favorite haunt: the Habitat ReStore. If you would like to join us; I’d love to see you, meet you, and share what goes through my head when I thrift. You can get a sneak peek from my post about what I see at the ReStore (from last summer.)

So, won’t you join us?

  1. Thanks for spreading the love! I am really excited for tomorrow and I have a good feeling I will be organizing another one of these in a few months for everyone who couldn’t make it this time. Woohoo!

  2. Oh my gosh, to be in Raleigh this morning. Thrifting has been a way of life for me since I was a child. My Mom could make use of everything after being someone elses cast off. I learned from one of the greatest to reduce, reuse, recycle, people before it became fashionable to do so. I was taught that everything has a purpose and never throw anything away. And we didn’t. Thanks for showing us it is doing the right thing to be thrifty. Have a great time and I look forward to seeing some photos (I hope) later so I can drool over my keyboard at what I missed.

  3. Did you actually make it to all those locations? We were totally wiped after three here in Colorado. It was so much fun!
