It’s National Thrift Shop Day!  I’ve been enjoying hunting through thrift shops for over 15 years now.  My search started as a teen when I was looking for vintage skirts and dresses that helped me define my style, as a teen often attempts to do.  I lived in thrifted threads throughout college and graduate school.  As I got older and took on more professional jobs, it was hard to continue that clothing style with the constant mending required of garments older than me.  These days I hunt thrift stores for vintage Pyrex dishes.  You might have some of these in your kitchen, or you’ve seen them on your aunt’s dinner table.  They come in all different shapes, patterns, and colors and I’m slightly obsessed with them.  It’s rare that I pass a thrift store without stopping to see if Pyrex treasures await.

I’ve also recently started thrifting children’s books as I build my daughter’s library.  She hasn’t arrived yet, but I plan on being well armed with lots of books to read to her for years to come.

Everyone seems to be looking for their own treasure, whether that’s at a thrift shop, or even at the library.  If you’re in the market for your next treasured read, check out some of these recent additions to our Reading Room.
