The Goodwill Outlet holds many things, though few of them can be described as beautiful. The large bins (hence the nickname), are filled with, well, everything. Shoes, clothing, housewares, furniture, bras, books, and undies. Yes, undies. I know, I’ve painted a lovely picture for you. Oh, did I mention how crowded and hectic it gets in that big warehouse? So why do I continue to shop there–why do I get SO excited to dig through those bins? Because every now and again, you find beauty within those heaps. Case in point, this vintage dress. It was buried under piles of clothes, but something about the print drew me in. I pulled it out and marveled at its unique shape and sweet details. The cut of the skirt, the slouchy pockets, the metal zipper. It is a true vintage beauty and so worth the effort.

After taking some time to focus on my YouTube channel, I am so very happy to dust off the old blog and reintroduce Thrift Your Heart Out to the world! I started writing this blog back in 2012 as a way to share my love of thrifting and encourage the masses to shop secondhand. Now, 5 years later, I’m happy to see the thrift industry thriving and shoppers proud to show off their preloved items. It seriously makes my heart sing. Thrifting is something I started doing as a hobby as a teenager, which now has grown to a passion and a way of life. I’ve committed myself to buying only secondhand clothing, shoes, and accessories to fill my closet and why wouldn’t I? There are beautiful, unique, and wallet-friendly pieces out there, just waiting to be found. I’m eager to share with you outfits that I put together using secondhand items, lookbook and haul videos, and other musings on my love of all things secondhand. Welcome to Thrift Your Heart Out.
