I LoveThrifting Day in Columbia, SC



On July 9th, thrifters across the nation will be participating in "I <3 Thrifting" Day. This event  is the brainchild of Rashon Carraway, aka Mr. Goodwill Hunting



On July 9th, Jernell and I are hosting the “I <3 Thrifting Event” in Columbia, SC!! This is for anyone who loves a good bargain and loves to shop (duh!)! On top of finding great items at amazing prices, you are helping keep the landfills empty! Let’s take it up another notch on July 9th! Make this a truly "green" event: bring your own reusable bags, a bag lunch that can be enjoyed at Cayce Riverwalk Amphitheater, and carpool with your friend(s)!

The thrifting fun will begin at 9:00 am at the Goodwill located on Garner’s Ferry Road (see below for the full itinerary and addresses).

We’ve decided to add a little twist to the event: Bring an inspiration photo of an outfit that you really like and try to recreate it by using the items you find on “I <3 Thrifting” Day! The outfit does not have to be recreated to a “T.” Be sure to add your own personal style!


Here is my inspiration photo:

If you don’t want to recreate a look, that is perfectly fine. We still want you to come!!!
