Last weekend, Mr. Goodwill Hunting, Rashon, was in town for a thrifting event at B & R Thriftstore in Sandy Springs. I stopped by for awhile to check it out and see Rashon again. He has recently announced the 2012 I Love Thrifting event for next year, which I plan to be a part of again. We had a lot of fun at this year’s I Love Thrifting event, so you will want to get it on it next year. Put July 7th on your calendar!
So, while I was there, I had to look around to see some thrifty possibilities. This pair of blue and white lamps are pretty sweet.
Here’s another lamp all set for the coastal look, filled with shells.
Three more possibilities, all of these could easily be changed up with color.
One shopper was looking at comforters and I pointed out this Ralph Lauren king for a mere $12.50. It was in great shape with a small tear on one corner that could easily be fixed. She snapped it up!
I also spotted these 2 like-new down pillows for $8 something each. She snapped those up too.
In the furniture section, these small wingbacks just need some new fabric to be brought back to life. Can you envision it?
Take off this dowdy skirt and they would be very modern with the right fabric.
This pink pair also has a nice shape and recovering them would work as well. I don’t remember how much they all were, but I think less than $40 each.
A fresh coat of paint on this TV cabinet would definitely spruce it up.
I found one thing for myself, this pretty yellow/green LL Bean sweater for $3.50. Snap!
Rashon held a fashion show that day, using only thriftstore clothes and they were having a blast.
A makeshift runway in the store brought out all the models.
Rashon has new I Love Thrifting T-shirts available in all new colors this year.
Erika brought along her 3 adorable children.
Fun time and great to see Mr. Goodwill Hunting again. He’s been all over the Nate Berkus show this year and I’m very happy for his success.
Sadly, I just read today that the Nate Berkus show has been cancelled and the last shows will air next May. I’m so sorry to hear this, as I have really enjoyed Nate’s show so much and he has given more blogger love than anyone on TV these days.
Here’s to 2012 and lots more thrifting!
