So I went to pick up three friends and drove a big circle around the freeway because we all live in different places. Finally after two hours of driving we got home to drop my dad off since he didn't want to spend a day thrifting. I had my maps ready, I had my map reader on hand, and I had my thrifting cap on - I was ready to shop till I dropped. I had my young grasshoppers with me and was ready to teach them the ways of a thrifter. It was already noon when we went to Old Towne, antique capital of America (according to the website). It was fun stolling around the town with old folks...ahh..old people are so nice and cute. We walked to some antique shops and then our first thrift store. Didn't find anything but my friends did and fashaholic found a gorgeous dress! Then off to Cuban food!
We ordered chicken, pork and beef! Yummm!
Then more thrifting! We visited a small fleamarket and met such nice people. One lady let us take pictures with her awesome vintage hats. I bought a necklace and my friend, such a sneaky girl, bought this bracelet that I was eyeing but didnt buy and tried to give it to me as a gift, but I didn't want to accept it so I slipped it back in her bag, but then she was trickier than me because today when I went out, I found it in my car! We then drove to St. Vinnies for half off saturday! My friends found some boots and I found this hideously wonderful poofy 80's dress. I love it with all my heart. Then went to a McDonalds for a water/bathroom break. Then on to thrift store number three. It was old time favorite local thrift where that saturday was $5 a bag. But nothing caught our interests that much. Finally we drove off to two new thrift store that I've never been before and I must say I now have new places to shop! One of the stores was 50% everything too. Bought two necklaces, a belt, two hats, and a nice pair of earl jeans! And then right next door was another thrift shop and 5 minutes before closing time I found a nice leather briefcase. I'll carry it around school next year! I later found out that it even came with a key to lock it up.

My adventure was not yet over. After our thrift tour, we went home and then we all went to eat Chinese food. BIG MISTAKE. After dropping everyone off I had the worse stomach-ache ever. I think it was a bad reaction to an overdose of thrifting. Yep, that's got to be it.
I'm glad with all my buys but I'm even happier that I have friends who love thrifting as much as me now! We should all convert people into thrifters!
