I Stole a Man’s “VIRGINITY”………Read Below!

Hey my fellow thriftanistas happy Thursday. I hope you are having an absolutely amazing week. My week has been pretty damn great so far. On Tuesday I took a brand new client on my one on one Thrift In The City Chicago Shopping Tour. Did I mention said client was a man? Did I also mention he was a “THRIFTING VIRGIN”? I know right a man that’s a “VIRGIN” go figure. Needless to say I was super excited to take him on his first foray into my world. It brings me so much joy when I can expose someone to the benefits of thrifting. I think it was especially exciting because often times men are under the misconception that thrift stores don’t have anything for them. I was more than happy to dispel that myth for him. We went to 2 different stores and I gave him a thrift 101 lesson. Many people don’t realize that there is an art to thrifting. If you are a novice you could get lost, overwhelmed and spend waaaaaayyyyyyyy to much money. This is where I come in. I walk people through the rules of thrifting and show them how to maximize their money. Even in a thrift store you want to get the most bang for your buck. However I digress, back to my client. He was truly amazed by all of the great things we found to complement his existing wardrobe. He could not believe they had so many name-brand items at those phenomenal prices. In the end we bought 11 shirts, 4 pair of jeans, 2 pair of black slacks and 3 suit jackets for a grand total of $50.00. That is less than the price of one pair of jeans. Needless to say he now has the thrifting bug. His excitement gave me my thrifting fix for the day. I must say it’s been a long time since I was a man’s first lol. I popped that thrifting cherry and am proud of it. I was gentle with him though :). In the end it was a wonderful experience for us both. Pictures of his fabulous new wardrobe and his testimonial coming soon.

Until Next Time Smooches,

    Living in Lake Bluff I found this great salvation army/goodwil in Waukegan that always had tagged clothing items. Mostly from Target but still I found the best things there!
