As you may know, I'm an avid thrifter. Every quarter, Keren Charles, founder of Thrifting Atlanta hosts a Thrifting Bus Tour. I've been on the tour on several occasions, but this time, I was invited a media to cover the details of the tour. I was so excited to attend as this was the first time the tour had completely SOLD OUT! (There were even participants following the bus in their vehicles!)
We visited several stores including Nearly New (Junior League Atlanta), New For You Boutique Consignment, Diva Diva Boutique, Rag-O-Rama (Sandy Springs), and Free Fabrik. All of these outlets offered myriad eclectic pieces in a variety of sizes, and at prices that would not 'break the bank.' Needless to say, I had an AWESOME time on this tour; I had an opportunity to meet lots of cool thrifters, some new to thrifting, others were veteran bargain hunters.
The next Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour is scheduled for Saturday, April 5, 2014. Tickets are on sale NOW at 50% off until February 15th so get your tickets TODAY!
Just a few words of advice in preparation for the upcoming tour:
1. Wear comfortable shoes and "thrift attire." That is, make sure that you can easily try on clothing over your outfit as some outlets do not have dressing rooms, or dressing space may be limited.
2. Eat breakfast and/or bring a snack.
3. Set a budget. If you don't, you're liable to go into each store and spend $$$!
4. And lastly, bring a friend and have fun!
Until next time,
