Thrifting Day! Come one, Come all

SO I want to invite you all to an event that is sweeping the nation - the i<3 thrifting event! Amazing blogger/ thrifter - turned TV star, (yes has made appearances on the Nate Berkus show!) turned blogging sensation - Mr. Goodwill Hunting has created an event to bring together all the design saavy looking for hidden treasures among the countries best (or existing) thrift stores. AND I am graciously hosting a New York City Chapter. (An excuse to go to thrift stores? didn't have to ask me twice!) You can read about the event announcement here.

AND if just thrifting wasn't enough - there are t-shirts for the event! Some of you may or may not know that in my other life I sell promotional products - so branded t-shirts? Right up my alley! - And yes I already got mine! (of course I got the pink one ;) You can order a t-shirt here if you want to sport one with me on our thrifting day - or if you just think they are cool!

SO I hope many of you can join in for a fun little Saturday of thrift store shopping NYC style! Our journey will begin at the strike of noon (I know hard core bargain seekers start much earlier - but come on - it's Saturday!?) at the Goodwill at 220 E. 23rd St. and venture on from there - you will be surprised how many thrift stores there are in NYC. Please comment on this blog post or on the Designing Jewels Facebook page if you are interested and lets start thrifting!


  1. Aaaww, I can't make the July 9th outing, but I know Master-Thrifter Kimberly will make sure there's something for everyone on her trifles-and-treasures-hunting safari. Good luck to all you thrifters---have a great day!

  2. I'm sad that I missed this. I LOVE the Goodwill and also live in NYC. Bummer. I hope ya'all do it again soon.
