Woohooo! So excited! Just a few more days and “I love thrifting” day will be here.
Check out this cute shirt Rashon had made this year! So I will be easy to find – just look for the green shirt with “I love thrifting” plastered all over it!
I scouted out some thrift stores yesterday (and bought all the good stuff before you all raided my stores – hahah! Just kidding… I left some stuff for you too!). And have made the schedule for Saturday. If you are able to join us from the first store we will follow each other from there. And if you can’t join us until later in the morning, this should help you get an idea of where we might be. (Times are approximate.)
So here’s the tentative plan:
9 am – Meet at Goodwill in Covington
(in the Kroger shopping center on Hwy. 278, next to Ace Hardware – 3173 Highway 278 Nw, Covington, GA 30014)
9:45am – head to my famous parking lot yard sale (weather permitting)
(located in the parking lot of Antiques and Stuff – 2177 Elm Street Covington, Georgia 30014)
10:45am – Rockmart Thrift Store
(located on 278 in the Budget self storage parking lot – Fred’s and Butcher Block Deli are in the same parking lot)
11:30 – Salvation Army
(located on Hwy. 81 – 5193 Washington St SW, Covington, GA)
12:00 – Repairers of the Breach
(located right off Hwy. 81 – 5120 Old Brown Bridge Rd SW, Covington, GA 30014)
12:45/1:00 pm – Lunch at Plain Nuts in the Covington Square (Deli type sandwiches with homemade sides – very good. Most meals are $7 including sides and tea/lemonade)
At that point we can be done and you can go on with your day. But if any of you would like to visit the flea market I talk about (Village Flea Market in Porterdale), my fabric warehouse (OHCO), or another thrift store, I will gladly show you around!
A few things – make sure to bring cash to shop at the yard sale. All of the rest of the thrift stores accept credit cards. And come ready to find some deals and have some fun! Looking forward to meeting you and thrifting together!
If you want to just let me know in the comments that you are coming, that would help me make arrangements with Plain Nuts for lunch.
See you on Saturday!
P.S. If you aren’t local to Atlanta area, check out Rashon’s list to see if there is one in your area. Or just try googling “I love thrifting day in Charlotte, NC” or whatever and you can probably find a blogger doing one in your area.
