The Second-Hand Queen

Once upon a time, when I was in college, someone asked the well-dressed graduate student at work where she shopped. Her answer? Goodwill and other second-hand shops! That very weekend I checked out all the stores. Surely if second-hand was good enough for this friend I looked up to, it was more than good enough for me.

I quickly realized that if some of my purchases were second-hand, I could have many times more clothes, shoes, and accessories than I could realistically afford if purchased new. If I shopped carefully at the right types of stores, I could have higher quality and fancier name brands than I could have otherwise. (I am so out-of-tune with name brands that I rely on listening to a fashionista friend.) One of my favorite finds was a brand new Brighton® purse at a church garage sale!

About 10 years ago, I realized that I was being "green" all these years and began to share my second-hand love with more and more friends without embarrassment. Not only am I helping clothe my family (yes, my boys, too), I am helping the environment and local business! The city we live in doesn't have a huge variety of clothing shops and what we do have is limited in selection. I was thrilled when a high-end consignment shop opened downtown about three years ago. I find something neat almost every time I go and am especially drawn to their shoes and jewelry. The excellent children's consignment shop here branched out into adult clothing as well, and I grabbed a wool winter coat this year for $21.

Most of these stores arrange their merchandise in ROYGBIV (red, orange yellow, green blue, indigo, violet) rainbow format, which is a feast for my eyes! I head right for the greens and purples. I'm also a sucker for oranges lately. Maybe you would think a bright redhead would want to try to blend in a little, but my line of thinking is to go with the flow - loud hair, loud clothes!

Because it's currently winter where I live, I decided to highlight some of my favorite winter finds on the layout below. I will freely confess I have a bit of a wool fetish, brought on in part by a book I purchased on recycling wool sweaters into craft projects. I still haven't felted any of the sweaters for craft projects, but one of the $3.50 wool cardigans is now my favorite sweater ever! It keeps me cozily warm while scrapping away in the cold Iowa winters.

I have never done Pocket Life-style layouts before now, and I am really enjoying this new way of scrapbooking! It's quick, easy, and quite attractive."
