Discussing the Trends….On TV!



Many of you know that since the beginning of 2012, I have been working with our local GOODWILL.  They give me a monthly stipend just to shop at their stores and blog about what I find.  It has been so much fun to work with them!  They asked me to join them this past Saturday on one of the local morning news programs (KENS5 – The CBS Affliate) to speak to teachers about how to save money and look great at Goodwill. 
No, this isn't ME!  I know it's confusing.....  :)
It was so much fun!  We were the first segment right before the Salsa dancers and Captain America…got to love local television!  I wore an outfit composed mostly from Goodwill and took some of my treasures to discuss.  Usually when I appear on television, I ramp up my makeup just a bit and make sure that I wear a great color…purple in this case.

Well, it was fun and I hope to get the opportunity to do this again!  Thanks Goodwill!  Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!  Does anyone have a great thrift find to share with us??
