Often times people ask me where I shop, so here’s a list of My Top 3 Thrift Stores. These are my go-to spots every weekend, and conveniently they’re close to where I stay. If you’re in the Hampton Roads area stop by and check them out! Also, stay tuned for a review of these stores COMING SOON!
Last Saturday I hosted the first of many exciting events, “Pretty Thrifty”, at Best Thrift in Norfolk, VA. I’m so thankful for my family, friends and followers that made this event a SUCCESSS! We enjoyed listening to oldies, yummy snacks, fun games and THRIFTING of course!
The first 10 guest that registered for the event on Eventbrite.com received a free Young & Thrifted reusable shopping tote available in green, pink and red.
Some guests participated in a little game I like to call “Fashion Flashback!”. In this game you have to put your fashion sense to the test and guess some of our favorite celebrities wearing their signature looks. Can YOU guess the celebrity? (Answer key at bottom of post)
Best Thrift also sponsored a few items to giveaway in the raffle.
We had a fun time taking pics with these cool DIY Photo Props! They were super easy to make and looked great in the photos. Special THANK YOU to my new found friend and owner of Bella Amori Vintage for capturing the event.
Planning and executing my first in-person event has given me the confidence and motivation to push myself harder and reach for the stars. The saying “success is a state mind” is so true, and now I’m finally starting to see all of the positive things that can happen in my life with the right attitude. “Pretty Thrifty” was better than I imagined and now I’m eager to keep the ball rolling. If you missed this event, don’t worry, there will be plenty more in the future! Once again thank you to Best Thrift and everyone that showed their support!
