My cold is still kicking my ass, so this post will be short and to the point. No excess verbiage! No unnecessary words! No needless nattering! Starting now!
Anywho, I have decided (thanks to the thrifty gals at NaBloPoMo) to do a partial thrift-store Christmas. I'd like to do a WHOLE thrift-store Christmas, but I don't know how my family members would react. So. I have a compromise. All the gifts I buy for my friends will come from one second-hand store or another.
I have many shopping options - Saver's, Value Village, Half Price Books, Goodwill, plus all the privately-owned thrift shops in the Twin Cities. Not to mention Craig's List and Ebay.
And I have many gift possibilities - purses, shoes, clothes, jewelry, crazy-bad knick-knacks. I think I can really rock this idea, and get some cool, unique, and utterly fabulous gifts.
If not, there's always Target.
