Today I am thankful for....


.......thrift store shopping!!!

If there is one thing I really, REALLY love, it is thrift store shopping! More often than not, I am amazed at the treasures found in these dusty, filled-to-the-brim shops and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world when I stumble across a beauty that someone else thought insignificant enough to discard!
My favorite thing to shop for in thrift stores (or markets), is vintage porcelain - especially those in pretty pastels from the 1950's. Lately, my thrift store obsession is coats though. With the cold Korean winter just around the corner, I am on the lookout for the perfect winter coat(s), and boy, have I found some pretty ones!

Now combine thrift store shopping with a coffee date and a friend that loves thrift store shopping even more than I do, and you've got yourself a success story!

Sounds like the most perfect of friend dates. Thrift shopping is my favourite thing in the world to do and luckily I have an awesome husband and sister who love it just as much so there's always someone to rummage with. My current thing is vintage fabric and cardigans. xx

Ahh, Truchie! I love thrift store shopping with you too... I'm just sad you won't be able to come with me again tonight! I can't promise I won't steal all the good stuff from Goejeong market! :)
