Restoring Old Wicker Furniture

I love thrift store and bargain shopping and getting good deals. This is just one of my frugal finds I purchased from a flea market. I bought this old, but sturdy, wicker side table for $4. Here it is after I tiled it and stained it.

Thrifty Clothing Shopping: Sylish Jeans for $1

When I was younger, before I knew any better, I used to be embarrassed to shop at a thrift store. I was afraid to be seen by someone I knew. Frank, would tell me, "Yeah, but if they see you in the thrift store it means they are shopping in there too, right?" That would ease my mind quite a bit.

My mind-set has really changed since then. Friends and family used to ask me where I got a shirt or pair of shoes that I was wearing, or they would remark on a skirt or dress I was wearing, "Where did you buy that beautiful coat", they would say. My reply is always the same. At a thrift store.

Now, All of our good friends and family know I wouldn't shop anywhere else but a thrift store for my clothing. I'm proud of the nice clothes I wear because they do not cost an arm and a leg and they are just as nice as what everyone else is wearing!

Here take a look at this video. There will surely be more great frugal clothes finds coming soon! Boy, I'm glad that I'm not embarrassed to shop at thrift stores anymore...:-)
