Thrifty vintage : Dress your life

Round up: Thrifty vintage in the news

I love setting up news alerts because this means that my searches (from search engines, newspapers, databases) come to me on a regular basis.

I have alerts for thrift, Goodwill, vintage, and the like, and often I find interesting stories in my in box. Here are a few of this week’s interesting stories and posts.

Happy reading,
