I got word of the I <3 Thrifting event from Katie Mac of the The Mac Styles and thought it was just for Houston. Nonetheless, I took the initiative to order a T-shirt just to show my support. I didn't find out until the night before (via twitter) that there were several thrifting groups in Atlanta that were actually going to participate, but my group was lead by none other than two fabulous females, Erika of BLu Label Bungalow and Dayka of Meditations on Life and Style. This was my very 1st time meeting both women and you would have thought we had known each other forever.... They welcome the entire group with open arms!!!!
Our group gathered at our first stop, the Goodwill at NorthLake.
|I never thought I would find myself shopping at a Goodwill... I guess it's a 1st time for everything!|
Our next stop was My Favorite Place... An Atlanta Landmark. It was my 1st time ever going but I found some great deals on trinkets and what nots!
|A few of us bloggers...|
|Erica found this lamp shade... I'm sure she will create a masterpiece!|
We decided to make one more quick stop to another Goodwill where we spent most of our time snapping pics because we were actually READY to EAT!

After lunch we headed to our final destination... Goodwill in Sandy Springs
We were met by Elaine Armstrong, the North Georgia Director of Public Relations for Goodwill, and a 11-Alive news photographer was on site to capture all the fun we were having. We were also invited to shop in the Goodwill store that is scheduled to open on August 4th in McDonough, GA
|We saved the BEST for LAST... This was the BEST Goodwill of the day!|

The day finally came to an end and we ALL were exhausted but found it fun to create new friendships... it was fabulous & fun!!!!
The I <3 Thrifting event was a huge success. I can’t wait until next year!
OAN: This was my 1st time thrifting at the Goodwill... I still have a lot to learn and I'm excited about learning Thrifting 101 & how to save $MONEY$
