Sorry for that title...kinda gross, huh? I'm nerdy like that, though...
Hopefully I still have you attention; I really want everyone to know why it's such a good thing to do some thrifting or second-hand shopping when you're trying to redo a space. I know garage sales and thrift stores aren't always the most appealing places to buy (for some folks), but you can really get great deals and very unique items!
I'm not saying you will be able to completely restyle your space this way...although, I do love a challenge...but you can make a lot of headway to filling-out your decor!
If you're feeling the urge to give your space a face-lift, try popping some tags and hitting up the thrift stores first. You'll make your dollars go farther and will be able to find very unique items!
