Like a deal? Finding a treasure? We sure do. Go back with us in our history to the heyday of thrift store shopping (eBay changed everything). We share some of our all-time favorite finds – and I also share a list of “Things You Should Never Buy At A Thrift Store” published in a major magazine, that gave us a good laugh (spoiler: we’ve bought most of them!). Plus, I give ideas of recipes you can make in a vintage cast iron pan–one of my best thrift store finds. And so much more!
