Instagram and The Thrift

I list things to sell on a site called Poshmark. Sometimes it’s my thrifted finds like vintage designer bags or clothes, it really depends on what I find. Right now I have on trend denim for sale; high waisted jeans. Omg…they are sooooo not me. I’ve tried, Lord knows I’ve tried but no; not a good look for me. I don’t know how I wore that style back in the 80’s. My girls however look amazing in high waisted jeans. They’re also 19 and 22 years old. I don’t need to do the math.

Recently Alyssa began an Instagram page called Shoppers Sky. It’s to post thrift finds that we are selling. But it’s difficult getting the page off the ground. I’m not complaining, just telling it like it is.

I will complain about bio chem, yes this class still plaques me. I can’t wait to get to the point where it is over, and I don’t need to make my brain memorized and digest things that it just doesn’t want to.

I enjoy the thrill of the hunt for thrifted finds that I sell. Sometimes I have people request for me to search for things on their own personal wish list. Sometimes I find what they want, sometimes I don’t. You never know what you’ll find at the thrift, but I have found when you put an object “out there” and almost stop looking for it; it shows up! No kidding. That’s what happened when Tommy and Lelly went looking at those chairs that have an egg shape and a base and hang from a hook at the top. To buy one from a store was so, so expensive so we didn’t buy. Two weeks later guess what shows up at the thrift store? Yes!! Two of those chairs. I almost fell over. The Sal Val wanted 150.00 less than retail and the chairs were new! I was so excited to buy one. Score for the thrift store!
