Gone Thrifting…

Are you a thrift & charity shop junkie? Do you love vintage & second hand? Does DIY give you the tingles? Have you kicked unethically produced fast fashion & decor to the curb?

If you’ve answered yes to the above questions then join my fancy new “Gone thrifting” group on facebook and share your love for all things thrifty & upcycled!

Gone Thrifting is a place to spread the second hand love, share upcycling & refashion projects, ideas + a healthy dose of thrifty style inspiration!

Feel free to post a brief decription & links to your latest refashions, DIY decor, thrifty outfits & style tips – snag advice & interact with other members – or simply lurk about & enjoy the thrifty goodness!

Share your second hand style each week with the Thrifty Thursday outfit & decor challenge!

The Thrifty Thursday Goal: To inspire others to shop second hand & prove that fabulous, affordable, unique style can easily be achieved without supporting the growing phenomenon of cheap, unethically produced fast fashion & decor.

How to take part in Thrifty Thursday:

– Style an outfit or share a decor item based on the themes seen at the top of the Gone Thrifting group wall.

*Outfits & decor must be put together from items you already own, have thrifted, DIY’d, swapped, inherited, gotten second hand, dumpster dived, etc…

– Post your Thrifty Thursday pics & a brief description (or a link to your Thrifty Thursday blog post) on the Gone Thrifting group wall.

– Be Inspired!
