Trendy Tuesday: I Love Thrifting Atlanta 2012 Recap

I know I'm a few post behind but it would be remiss if I didn't share this post! I Love Thrifting Day was a huge success!!!!! I attended last year and again this year. 
However, I must say it gets BIGGER and BETTER each year! I have NEVER been much of a thrifter but it's fun and exciting because it's like a treasure hunt. You just never know what you will find when thrifting! 

We rolled out on a charter bus... Toot, Toot ~ Beep, Beep!!!!

This is how I Love Thrifting Atlanta Roll

My Oldest Daughter: Tyler & I 

She's a DIE HARD thrifter... her entire outfit is thrifted with the exception of her shoes & necklaces

I remember when I was this TINY! (Tehehehe)

Do you think thrifting is here to stay or is it just a Fashion Trend? 

Note to you: The key to thrifting is PATIENCE! PATIENCE! PATIENCE!

 ~ Until next time 

Peace, Love, & Fashion



  1. Cool! I never thought I would like thrifting as much as I do.

  2. You know I'm a thrifter and I was mad that I couldn't make it this year. I hope there is another one before the year is out.

    Your daughter is so pretty! I remember when my stomach was flat like that!

    1. IKR! Wish you could have been on the bus... hopefully, you can make the next one! And, I surely remember when my stomach was as FLAT as my daughters. lol

  9. Thanks for joining us! What a great recap. It certainly brings back fond memories. Thrifting is here to stay.

  10. OMG!! I would love to attend something like this. Super fun time!!! Kiah

  11. I bet you all had so much fun! I think thrifting is here to stay. My mother was into thrifting when I was a little girl waaaaaaaaaaaaay before it became trendy. I used to thrift in vintage thrift shops in high school so that no one would have my clothes. And I just recently got back into it and love it!

  12. I'd love to bring my daughters down for the next event... One of them wants to attend Spelman.

  13. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Lynn, I should have been in that bus, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I Love thrifting and no shops about, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Your daughter is beautiful, but you look so young!!!

  14. Omg so fun. Fabulous post, love! If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest post for LaurenConrad.com. xo


  15. This looked like it was truly an amazing trip Ms. Lynn! And check you all out, making it on the news and everything and everyone looked like they found some great deals! Great job and even a greater job bringing your Daughter along and both of you are Thrifting Winners I see, very cool! - JT


  16. Im so freaking jealous omg I want to go lol

  17. A box of stuff? Wow, that looks like such fun. I feel like I need to take a bloggers vacation to Atlanta and hang out with you all!!!

  18. It's funny it's even considered a trend. I thrifted as a kid because we didn't have a lot of money and just never stopped doing it. I do it because I like finding a good deal and to me that isn't trendy, just smart.

  19. Amazing pics!!!



  20. Your daughter is soooo pretty and girl I remember when I was that tiny too. Tell her I hate her, LOL. I am trying hard to get into thrifting, I got to get some dang patience! Love your photos!

  22. Looks like you guys had a great time! Your daughter has great style I loved her entire outfit.

  23. lol, so not a trend to me, I would thrift even if I was a millionaire....it is that much fun to me. I love finding one of a kind things especially vintage items that you will NEVER find any where else.

  24. Make sure you explain to me that you're going to preserve this up! Its so very good and so critical. I cant wait around to read much more from you. I just feel like you know so a lot and know how to make men and women listen to what you have to say. This website is just as well amazing to be skipped. Great things, really. You should, You should keep it up!
