Small Town Thrift Shopping
I love going thrift shopping every once in a while, but the problem is that you really have to dig deep to get the good stuff in New Hampshire! I've always wished that the thrift stores where I live were overflowing with cute vintage clothing and jewelry. Instead, they are usually the ones people pile all their ratty 90's clothes that nobody wants to wear anymore. I mean, it's fine for people who need cheap clothes, but when I'm looking for a unique vintage find, it takes a little while to find some good stuff. I went to one last week that was in the middle of nowhere and although the few clothing racks that they had were slim pickings, I was able to find some cute little buttons, a pair of earrings, and a scarf. The scarves were right at the door when I first walked in. They weren't made out of gorgeous silk, but for 75 cents I couldn't resist. After looking through all the clothes that didn't do much for me, I found a bucket of buttons and I just thought, "Hey, at least I'll look at these to occupy myself. Some might be interesting!" I ended up getting a handful of gold and silver buttons with anchors and emblems embossed on them. At the counter, I looked at the jewelry while my grandmother checked out. Right before she paid for everything, I spied these gold and white flower earrings I thought would complete my trip. They are now my favorite earrings (besides my pearls) and they are great to wear just to the beach or with a cute skirt and tube top. As for the buttons, I'm thinking of using them to jazz up a cheap jacket...but that'll be another thrift shopping day!
