Let’s Go Thrift Shopping!

I’ve been blogging for almost a year and a half and I tend to get the same question. “Patrice, I want to go thrifting with you!” Well, it’s not really a question, but more of a request. I’ve bumped in to a few of you while out thrifting, but now it’s time to make an official group endeavor. So without further delay, I’m announcing “Adventures in Thrifting.”

I envision this as a monthly series where I get together with a group of 3-5 people {it’s best to keep the group small} and I introduce you to some of my favorite thrift stores in NYC. We’ll shop for second hand finds and I’ll offer up my tips and tricks to get the best bargains. Just think of me as your Thrifty Godmother! Since I’m based in New York, these outings are limited to NYC but if I get requests for other cities, who knows!

Each outing will have a special theme: Goodwill Crawl, How to Navigate a Warehouse Sale, Vintage Lovers, Uptown Baby, Where Brooklyn At?, Accessories Haul, Thrifting for Newbies, Put an Outfit Together for under $20, etc.

I’m solidifying an April date for the inaugural “Adventures in Thrifting” but within the next week I should have the date as well as details of the trip mapped out. Trust me, you’ll want to get in on this!

  1. What a fantastic idea! If I’m ever in your area (of the nation- sigh) I’ll definitely be there.

    Have fun and many fortuitous finds!

  2. Ha, ha! This sounds so cool! Every shopper wants affordable items and enjoyable shopping experience. Finding great sales among mall or any stores is really challenging. So you must be updated about latest sales. Thankfully online has become useful for such updates and research about shopping.
