Thrifting Adventures


Twice a month, Annalise and I wake up early and make a 2 hour drive to northern California for thrifting. We were so happy that Nicole came with us on our adventure. We left San Francisco at 9:00 AM and travelled to a little town just outside of Santa Rosa. For the next three hours, we scoured racks of clothes and purchased some amazing finds.






Some of my favorite finds of the day were a maxi floral skirt and a plaid wool skirt. This bar cart was pretty amazing and somehow managed to fit in the back of my car. It is now the perfect spot for Nicole's newly purchased 1920's bar glasses.

Although we frequent many thrift stores in Santa Rose, we also love to stop in Sebastopol and visit Aubergine Vintage Emporium. Aubergine has an amazing selection of dresses, coats, shoes, and purses. We spent hours purusing the racks and trying on clothes.





We are quite happy with our purchases and can't wait to go again in two weeks. A proper outfit post will follow on Wednesday.
