Learn to Thrift!

When Dina and I started our Thrift Challenge a few months ago, our goal was to show that shopping at thrift stores isn't just about uncovering a lucky find, you can actually go there and shop for specific items, whether it be home decor, furniture, or clothes.

Well now we're going to put our money where our mouth is! Join Dina and I along with Lauren from Noto Boutique at Goodwill Akron (570 E. Waterloo) for our FREE class: Learn the Basics of Thrift Shopping! All three of us are so excited to share our thrifting tips and to help you put them to use.

Mark your calendars!!

Tuesday May 6th @ 10am, taught by me & Lauren.
(I'll also be teaching a fabric bunting craft at 9am if you want to come early!)

Wednesday May 7th @ 6pm, taught by me & Lauren. 
(I'll be teaching a fabric bunting craft from 4-6 if you want to come early!)

Saturday May 10th @ 12:30, taught by Dina.
(Come early for the blogger fashion show at noon!)

As mentioned, on Saturday May10th before the 12:30 thrift class there will be a blogger/fashionista fashion show! 

Think Super Market Sweep at the thrift store!! Participants will have 30 minutes and $20 to put together a stylish outfit. Then at noon they'll model their looks for guests and shoppers who will vote on their favorites. Participants will include:

  • Rachel / For the Birds
  • Amy / Glam and Grace
  • Megan / Garden Variety
  • Collyn / Two Amused Bouches
  • Abby / Les Bottes D'eleanor
  • Lindsey / Ever So Splendid 
  • KSU fashion students: Mercadies, Shelby, Sarah
  • Cyndi Martin / Ms. Ohio Valley, 2014

  • Come and see what outfits these ladies can pull together, and be sure to mark your calendar for on of the three thrift classes!
