Don't these photos just brighten up the blog?!  What a beautiful day I had with my friends, Erica and Claire.  We spent Sunday at the Wooden Shoe Tulip farm in Woodburn, OR.  This place just makes you smile, it's amazing!  My friend Erica is the queen of thrifting.  She scored what she's wearing here; the Vince cardigan, anthropologie jeans, italian made sandals, Kate Spade purse, and vintage top all at Value Village in Springfield.  She told me the whole outfit was $18 and the sandals $20.  Her daughter Claire's outfit is thrifted as well, including children's Birkenstocks and a Nordstrom brand top.  I asked Erica if she could offer any tips for thrifting, where she goes, what she looks for, here is what she typed up for me:  "After going to many thrift shops locally and even small shops, I find more quality items at Value Village……if you have an eye for brands and styles, it's really reasonable.  I began thrifting because of my shopping addiction and cravings for unique styles not offered in traditional stores.  As it turns out, thrifting not only satisfies my style needs but also saves money.  The brands I scout are mainly Anthropologie and brand name denim however on occasion other higher end brands are available.  Since items are used, it's a good idea to take the time to inspect each piece for stains or holes.  Usually employees do a great job but on occasion they miss spots.  If it's not a big issue, you can request a discount for the item.  Any day besides a sale day is a good thrifting trip!  Always a fun find.  All-in-all thrifting benefits those in need, cleans the earth, and saves you money!"   Thanks Erica, sounds like a win-win to me :)!
