THERE are so many cool treasures to check out at thrift stores, so come THRIFT WITH ME & check out what I found at Goodwill.

OKAY so when I heard about thredUP I was intrigued. It’s an online thrift store where you can buy and sell gently used clothes.

I heard about this online thrifting/consignment store & hadda give it a try for myself! Here are my thoughts for anyone who’s heard about thredUP and gone ‘hm, wonder if that’s any good?’ Continue reading “TRYING THREDUP: A REVIEW”
