Thrifty finds

So I thought I'd share this post with you.  A while back I talked about how much I really like investing in vintage and thrifted clothes.  For me it's important because I feel like I'm being more sustainable with my wardrobe because I'm reusing clothes rather than buying a new seasonal wardrobe from Primark.

My obsession with thrifting started whilst I was on my year abroad in France last year.  Every Sunday I went to the flea market with friends.  It started off as something to cure the Sunday boredom with (nothing happens in France on Sunday mornings), but on my first trip I picked up some fantastic things for next to nothing and so it became a weekly thing.  Most of the jumpers never cost more than 5 Euros.  It's exciting rifling through a massive pile of clothes and finding some gems.  Feels like a real achievement.  My favorite find is the striped jumper in the third picture.  I wrote it constantly in France and I'm probably going to get some more wear out of it this winter.

Do you guys have any favorite thirty finds?
