My Favorite Find of 2010, and The Magic of Thrifting!

It was fun looking back at my thrifted finds throughout the year the past couple days! I've had a bunch of lucky ones, including Ray Bans, a couple designer purses, and some awesome vintage treasures.

But my hands-down favorite? Well, it was something that I thought I'd never get back- the bear that Josh got me when we were 13 and 14 years old. The original bear got lost when a hurricane hit my parent's home in 2004, so when I found this identical one at Goodwill Outlet this year, I couldn't believe it!

This bear reminded me that there's something almost like magic about thrifting. To one person, this little teddy bear was just a stuffed animal, but to me it represents so much more.

And that is why I love to thrift. While it's true that you never know what you might find, I never imagined I'd spot a piece of my history sitting in a Goodwill bin. Here's to hoping that next year will bring finds just as special as my bear to us all :)



  1. What a great story...and such an adorable bear! Hope you have many great finds in the new year.

  2. Thrifting is definitely magic! Sometimes I feel I can just conjure Pyrex out of thin air!

    I'm glad you got your bear back :)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
