I have gone through phases in my life where I would try and only purchase recycled items but since moving back to the island I sorta fell out of that routine. We have a couple small thrift stores and an amazing "take it or leave it" but I never manage to make the time to visit them. When off-island I always try and stop at the crazy/ big Value Village or Goodwill but since having Owynn I rarely leave the island. I really want to try and get back into the routine in only buying used / handmade again. I am not going to make any rules for myself and of course there are times when buying new is better, especially with the basics but I am ready to get back into my thrifting ways.

Recently I got lost in the amazing selection of Vintage Etsy shops and thought I would share a few of my favorites while I am on the subject of thrifting. I have to say there is nothing more satisfying then finding that perfect wool cardigan for 5 bucks even if it took an hour. When you find something good it is always worth the search and I think the search is the best part.
