Thriftin Aint Easy...

...but somebodys gotta do it!!! Ive been going to thrift stores for as long as I can remember, probably 10+ years now. Its literally become a routine just like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Thrifting is actually one of my favorite pastimes so to speak and I enjoy grabbing a coffee, heading to the thrift store and just cruising the whole store in hopes of finding some cool vintage gear. Sometimes you leave empty handed and sometimes you find amazing vintage clothes but either way its fun to me. Im gonna start posting some of my favorite finds of the week so without further adieu here are a couple from this week: First up is a 1989 Rolling Stones some girls t-shirt that is in great vintage condition (when I say great vintage condition it can mean 2 things, either mint with no holes/rips/stains or worn to perfection meaning super soft & thin which a lot of people prefer). In this case the shirt is softer than a babys butt and thinner than Mary Kate Olsen (Ive been using that saying for years so dont try and bite it, hahaha). The second shirt is a 1989 Stray Cats t-shirt which is a little more worn than the stones and has seen better days but amazing nonetheless. ***Thrift Store Tip*** When you find one concert tee from a specific year most likely there is another one or two in the store because people usually clean out their closet and give away similar items that they dont want anymore. I can just picture some 40yr old Dad doing his spring cleaning, finding these buried in the drawer and after a minute of reminiscing tossing them in the pile for the Salvation Army.
