Thrift Blogs You'll Love: Thrifting Passion

Thrift Blogs You'll Love Friday shares some of the best and most unique Thrift Resources I encounter on the web. The following three blogs have diverse voices and styles, yet they're united by a passion for second hand hunting that shines through in their work.

The blog recommendation comes with an absurd story. It was love at first sight for me and Let's Go Thrifting. I love the design, whimsical finds, and thoughts on thrifting.

Close to Halloween 2010 my best friend Kira (I wrote about her Dad's amazing Philly tomato and weed garden here 3 years ago) sent me an e-mail about how she was shocked to see a link to Thrift Core on her sister's friend's blog, Let's Go Thrifting.

'Twas fate that we should find each other, I say!

And lastly, my personal favorite. Though this photo card looks slightly smudged on the left, this image is priceless. From the New Jersey-inspired overindulgent makeup job to the confrontational crossing of the arms, this granny could kick the shit out of you.

The A La Modern shop and blog both showcase an undeniable passion for modern design. A La Modern blog posts are filled with perfectly selected second-hand finds and excellent thrifting and re-selling tips.

Bonus: The photos are gorgeous! Please write us some photography tips!

If you have a sweet tooth for cute vintage treasures, check out the A La Modern Etsy shop. Another website by A La Modern is Pyrex Love. I love the handy Pyrex Pattern Guide.
