A Few Life Updates & Small Haul

Hello, all!

Long time no see (again). I’m sorry I’ve been so absent as of late — as I mentioned a few (many) months ago, we’ve been saving for buying a home, and I’m so excited to announce that mission has been accomplished, and we have been proud first-time homeowners for nearly three months!

Long story short, there hasn’t been much thrifting as of late. I’ve made a few small trips, but most of my effort these past few months has been concentrated on house, house, and more house, and clearing out my closet (check out my Poshmark closet for some deals on my gently loved clothing and accessories). It’s all been a bit exhausting, but I’ve loved every second of it.

I did make it to Goodwill and Salvation Army once before we moved, though, which was a nice bit of a break from everything. There’s something so calming about wandering down isles of knickknacks and racks of clothing and pondering the history behind each item. (Or is that just me? It is? Ok.)


On my trip to Goodwill, I found an assortment of cozy springtime things: two infinity scarves, a pair of green leather heels, and a crochet shawl wrap. I also found a book for my mom for Mother’s Day (Wow, that was a while ago, huh?), and a pretty tin jar I’m using to store my seeds — because we have acreage now, and I can have a garden! Wheee!


At Salvation Army, I found this pretty blue maxi skirt with tulips on it and this basket I intend to use for carrying things while puttering around the garden. I did make another stop in at SA a few weeks later (because I apparently can’t go to the Post Office without a pit stop at the thrift store afterward), and I scored this beautiful vintage floral maxi dress for only 81 cents! Aren’t those pearlescent buttons dreamy?

Oh, and I did make it to the humane society thrift store as well, which yielded my best find of the month: actual L.L. Bean boots in my size for $5.99! What a steal!

So there probably won’t be too many thrift hauls in the near future due to being pretty strapped for cash. But I’d assume there will be a few, at least!

Hope you all are well and staying cool this summer!
