Thrifting haul

Hey everyone! I thought I would do a thrifting video of some recent things I have found at my local thrift stores. Hope you enjoy! I could not figure out to how to not make it side ways. I know thats pretty tacky and sorry about that! Anyways, hope you are enjoying your summer vacation.

In Christ,
Rebecca

Hi Rebecca! I love your thrifting videos! I think that it would be really fun and informative if you did do a video of you shopping at your thrift store. I would love to see something like that. I really love your yellow skirt. That is definitely something I would love to wear myself, with the ruffles and the tie. Yellow isn't usually my color, I go for more blues and greens, but I love it a lot. So light, summery, and elegant.

It is an interesting point that you bring up about thrifting vs retail because of slavery in other countries. I have never really thought about it. That is sobering. I would love to be able to do more of my own sewing and not relying going to store. I do not like shopping necessarily. Haha. I have been desiring to do my own sewing, I have TONS of fabric that I have bought, but whatever the Lord wills since I hardly have the time right now. Anyway, I think it is awesome that you are becoming more self-reliant in that area. You are very blessed! :)

Hey maid at the well, yes I usually don't do yellow either, near my face that is, so this skirt was something pretty out there for me! :)

Yes I too have tons of fabric and really don't sew too many of my own clothes, I am trying to do more of that instead of buying. But thrifting really is just as good for me! I can alter or adjust the clothing and then its faster than sewing the whole garment. But I have made one blouse lately and I am working on another one. So thats a start! I am praying you find the time to do more sewing when you can!
I will try and do a video inside a thrift store sometime soon. I have decided to not buy any clothing right now. So maybe I will just go to the thrift store and show how to look through and find things, but not buy the fun items I find. :) That would be hard! But I can do it for my readers right?!

In Christ,
Rebecca

Hi Rebecca!

Yes, you can do it for your readers! ;) It is a hard job, but it must be done. Hehe. It would be a fun and informative video, though, and I think your readers would enjoy it a lot. And yes, finding things at a thrift store is much easier than sewing things from scratch. I have this prom dress that is kind of vintage-esque style and I am updating it with some accessories, fabric flowers, and such to make it more vintage as well as to cover up some unsightly rips in the bodice! Haha. That will be a fun project and much faster than sewing up a dress! I will have to post a pic on FB when I get around to that project.

I look forward to seeing your finished blouse, if you post about it. :)
