Thrift shop finds make unique vacation souvenirs

Thrift shops and travel can go together like a hand and a glove. People are beginning to shop in thrift stores to look for unique souvenirs and inexpensive items when they are on vacation

My daughter and I have been scoping these stores out as we prepare for her wedding and all important honeymoon. Talk about some cool finds! We picked up a Lorton China frame, a silver plated tray by Gorham and a very special souvenir. It's in the video below.

I would be glad to tote any of these finds home from a getaway, vacation or honeymoon. How about you?



Shopping at thrift shops on vacation is a good way to pick up things you need but couldn't fit in the suitcase. Are you going from a warm climate to a cool one? Pick up a couple of long sleeve t-shirts, wash them and donate them back.when you leave.

I was a few thousand miles from home when I pulled out my camping gear and realized that my cookware was back home. A thrift shop hooked me up with a $2.50 saucepan that still travels with us. Then I noticed some souvenir mugs in the corner, and well, you know how it goes. 😃
